About The Center for Children with Special Needs

The Center was formed in Seattle, WA in 1998 as a program of Seattle Children’s Hospital. We primarily serve families in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho).  We collaborate with a variety of health care organizations, state agencies, families, and health care providers to plan and implement grants and contracts that improve systems of care and increase access to health education and community resources.

We are funded through contracts and grants, endowments and Seattle Children’s. The Washington State Department of Health supports development and maintenance of this website.
