Work Opportunities is a non-profit based in Lynnwood, WA that helps people with disabilities secure inclusive and supportive employment. We believe that anyone who wants to be employed, regardless of ability, should be able to earn an income, participate in there community, and enjoy the independence and autonomy employment provides.

Across King, Snohomish, Skagit, and Whatcom counties, we provide support to nearly 500 people with disabilities, helping to reach goals of not only an income, but of becoming valued and participating members of our communities.

On June 7th, 2024, we will be celebrating our 22nd Annual Gala & Auction at the Lynnwood Event Center. Our goal is to raise $240,000 with nearly 400 anticipated guests to continue providing our supported employment services to people with disabilities who want to work.

If your values are aligned with our mission of addressing inequities in the workforce and providing support and resources to people with disabilities, we welcome you to join us!
