The Northwest Center is extremely helpful in so many ways, as a former resident it is a great place to learn and grow as a responsible adult with exceptional guidance. Susan, the Director of the center is awesome and really takes the time to listen and help in anyway she can, for me personally Susan was there at various court sessions, wrote recommendation for scholarships, helped furnished my apartment when I moved out and most importantly I can still call her at a time of need! I cannot express further how wonderful the program is and I am so grateful to have found a non-profit organization like the Northwest Center! Thanks Again!
