In order to better reflect the community we serve, Northshore Special Families’ name is changing to Northwest Special Families. As we have expanded in the past couple years, NSF is serving more and more families from Shoreline, Lake Washington, and other school districts in addition to Northshore. This name will allow us to keep the same acronym but also be inclusive of all of our participants.

Northwest Special Families is a parent-led community of families with children with special needs; we offer supported social opportunities for children and families in North King and South Snohomish counties. NSF hosts family dinners and outings, Special Santa, Sibshops, Mom’s Spa Nights, and the Can Do 5K/10K. For information on programs and how to get involved, check out the Northwest Special Families web site.

Northwest Special Families is a program of the Family Support Department.
