Mission Statement

Palouse Industries will provide education, training, and employment opportunities for persons with disabilities residing in Whitman and Latah Counties in order to assist them to attain their highest possible socioeconomic level in the community.

Purpose Statement

Palouse Industries serves as a model for areas businesses and service providers to see children and adults with special needs as contributing members of our society. Ideally, Palouse Industries strives for the day when supports will be available in each preschool, business, public agency, and charitable organization that would sufficiently serve the needs of people with disabilities. Until then we are at the service of our community, state, local municipalities and families.

What is Family Support

Palouse Industries provides family support through its Young Children and Family Programs of the Palouse (YCFP). YCFP offers home visiting and group-based parenting programs for families in Latah and Whitman Counties. YCFP strives to build on each family’s individual strengths and abilities rather than identifying and fixing a "problem." Our services are provided at no or minimal cost to families.
