We toured this community earlier this spring and were just in awe of what they have already accomplished. Coyote House was nearing completion and you could see the love and attention that went into every detail of building this home for the needs of future residents. The apartment for the resident manager was beautiful too and a wonderful perk to this job!
Please pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested. This is truly a dream community and one which has developed from the love and devotion of the director and board. I’m just sorry that this is not closer to my home so that I could work here – it would be a dream job for me!
This is an informal group for families and friends of residents at Fircrest School. We are building a “natural supports” network in hopes of communicating with each other and sharing experiences, hopes and dreams. We work to bridge the divide and build a continuum of care service model. Fircrest is a Residential Habilitation Center in Shoreline, WA (RHC) and is a campus community for our most vulnerable citizens.
There will be a bi-weekly newsletter published by families and friends to update us on what people are doing, inform us of changes on campus and also local community events. We have already started some of these projects and during the summer we will be instituting a couple more programs.
