Financial Aid

  • DSHS, UW, & City of Seattle vouchers are accepted.

We recognize that our financial structures do not always work for the needs of our community, and we are interested in working with families to determine a structure that makes sense for them. We also understand that care needs aren’t predetermined and set in stone, and that they in fact may evolve and change with time. If for any reason you find that your financial needs have changed, whether short-term or long-term, we welcome all conversations around tuition adjustment.
