Dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals with disabilities in our community.

How we are helping

We are a community-based organization that provides activities to help guide individuals with intellectual disabilities (i.e. learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, etc) towards meaningful relationships within their community while building upon each individual's unique strengths.

Covid's Impact On Bainbridge Island Special Needs Foundation

We suspended our program last March, assuming that we would be "up and running" by summer. By late summer, we began searching for a gathering space with a lower rent in order to be good stewards of the funds so generously donated to the program. With great sadness, we terminated the Stephens House lease with Eagle Harbor Congregational Church. We have now rented a large space in the church building: we will still be "downtown" with all of the advantages that the location provides.

Our program will resume when health guidelines allow. We will update our website as we get new infomation.
