Aacres was founded in 1974 on the philosophy of providing individualized community supports for people with developmental disabilities. We believe that people can live in and contribute to their community when provided with appropriate supports.


The ability to identify needs and build programs to meet those needs is what sets Aacres apart from other providers. We have pioneered several programs to fill the needs of previously un-served or underserved populations. We understand the need to develop new innovative programs that meet the unique and ever changing demands of people in the community.

We have a strong commitment to serving people which is the cornerstone of our strength and success. Accepting people with respect and creativity enhances our ability to stand beside them through the difficult times in the lives.


We believe that in order to serve the community, we must first provide opportunities for personal growth for both our clients and staff.





It is our mission to promote engagement with all persons that support our clients, follow person-centered practices, and support the highest level of independence possible for the individuals we serve grounded in professional standards in the field.


We utilize an interdisciplinary approach utilizing feedback from the entire team which consists of the individuals, families, caregivers, guardians, LVN, LMFT, BCBA, and Psychologist. 




Thousands of dedicated professionals make up our team at Aacres Washington. They work together to provide quality care for all of our residents. Our diverse staff provide services that assist the individuals we work with to successfully integrate into the neighborhoods where they live.
