Together with public and private partners, we aim to build Ohana Village, a mixed use, multi-level residential community of inclusion in Spokane Washington.  Ohana will be a truly diverse, intergenerational neighborhood of support, in which all of our residents--especially those with developmental and intellectual challenges--can flourish in an environment of friendship, cooperation and care.  



Our Mission

Harnessing the power of home and village to enhance the physical, social, and civic capacities of every resident--including individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities--in the context of a caring and committed neighborhood of support. 




BUILDING OHANA   In June of 2013, after a year of research and concept development, BUILDING OHANA was incorporated as a nonprofit in the state of Washington.  In January of 2016, we received federal approval as a 501c3 nonrprofit corporation located in Spokane Washington.
