A lifetime of support
Tahoma Associates takes pride in our availability to serve a person throughout their lifetime by offering Internship programs that begin with students who are making the transition from school to work, and continue with our Employment Programs for persons over the age of 21.
Helping seniors
For seniors over the age of 62, or those who find that work is not a viable path for them, we offer Community Access and assist people to stay active in their communities.
Whole-person approach
We believe in the “whole-person” approach. Understanding that each person has a home life of family and friends that they value, and personal interests to pursue. Tahoma aspires to incorporate those values and interests into each person’s program plan to the greatest degree possible, as we recognize that individualized services are the keystone to success.
