Our Mission

Tacoma Area Coalition of Individuals with Disabilities' (TACID) mission is to promote the independence of individuals with disabilities through peer support, advocacy, and self-sufficiency programs.


TACID empowers people with disabilities to utilize their strengths and abilities to create and enhance the lives they choose through programs, community, and volunteering.


  • Increase and diversify funding to optimize the future of TACID
  • Strengthen TACID through focused board development and growth
  • Create a way to provide secure, web-based support groups for individuals who cannot get to TACID due to the level of their disability and/or lack of public transportation
  • Create a program specific to younger adults who are turning 18 and will no longer be eligible for the groups and activities they participated in prior to becoming an adult

In 2018, TACID served 2,148 participants and provided over 15,000 services!
