Why does Sherwood exist:

More than 1,500 babies are born each year in Snohomish, Island and Skagit County with some type of disability or delay.
Today, only 60% of children born wtih a disability or delay receive early diagnosis and treatment
People with disabilities are too often unemployed and underemployed
In the U.S. only about 20% of people with disabilities are employed and in WA State nearly 27,000 individuals with disabilities are unemployed

Sherwood Makes a Difference

Last year 924 children and adults with disabilities received critical, life-changing services!
