Improving the quality of life for people with disabilities

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 stabilize and further optimize the future of TACID
  • Resolve capacity issues through increased staff
  • Strengthen TACID through focused board development and growth


There are a number of volunteer’s opportunities to support the work of TACID. We are able to provide the wide range of activities, groups, workshops, and day to day care because of our volunteers. Consider taking time to share your gifts and talents with us.

Last year, nearly 2,500 individuals participated in programs and services
