DSHS Accessibility

What We Do

Ensuring access to DSHS facilities and services for people with disabilities. 

Our Commitment

A single mission unites DSHS: transform lives. 1.8 million clients or nearly one in four Washingtonians engage yearly with our services, many of whom are people with disabilities. DSHS is committed to serving people with disabilities in our programs, activities, services, and employment. 

DSHS does not exclude, treat people differently, or otherwise discriminate because of disability. DSHS shall advance disability access and inclusion in order to effectively and justly meet our mission in the 21st century.
