Mission Statement

We provide community-based recreation programs for youth and adults (14 and older) with developmental disabilities with three broad aims: 1) To provide opportunities for personal enjoyment and enrichment through a diverse range of leisure activities. 2) To promote the social, physical, emotional, and cognitive growth and development of participants. 3) To assist participants to achieve greater independence in their lives and increased involvement in the community.

Description

Max Higbee Center is a grassroots organization founded by educators and families of people with developmental disabilities who wanted quality recreation opportunities in Whatcom County. Max Higbee, a professor at Western Washington University, spearheaded this movement. The Drop-In Center gained status as a non-profit organization in 1984 and was then renamed in honor of its founder. The Max Higbee Center envisions a caring, inclusive, respectful, and thriving community where people are empowered to grow, develop, and enrich their lives through recreation activities and the relationships they create. MHC values a fun, safe, welcoming, and people-first community dedicated to creating friendships and offering opportunities for all members to reach their greatest potential.
