Who We Are
Who we are
Every one of us has the right to pursue the life we choose to live.
Supporting people with disabilities to fulfill their life choices.
Founded in 1942 by a group of dedicated mothers whose goal was to find solutions for the unmet needs of their children with disabilities, PROVAIL has been supporting people with disabilities to fulfill their life choices in the Puget Sound community for over 80 years. Formerly known as United Cerebral Palsy of King and Snohomish Counties, we changed our name to PROVAIL in March of 2000. PROVAIL is now one of the largest disability service providers in the region. Throughout our history, PROVAIL has been a leader in the movement toward an inclusive community. From the move from sheltered workshops to community-based employment and institutional living to community living, PROVAIL’s programs have led the way for inclusion in the Puget Sound.
The PROVAIL family is made up of more than 400 staff members, hundreds of volunteers, and dedicated supporters.
