Empowering people with intellectual disabilities to live lives of meaning and self-determination


During Covid-19, members are staying safe and enjoying zoom time together!

COVID-19 Response

Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local public health authorities, we have changed our services to follow the required phased approach. Due to current restrictions, in person programming is limited to one on one Community Guide services, and virtual club programs are offered to keep our members engaged during this difficult, isolating time. Updates will be made according to guidelines. Thank you for your understanding. We hope everyone stays healthy and safe.

Vitalize Kitsap

Vitalize Kitsap is a Bainbridge Island non-profit that serves all of Kitsap County. We believe everyone deserve dignity, respect, and to be a welcome part of their greater community. Our individualized programming offers lifelong learning opportunities. Members gain new skills needed in developing independence,  participating in the community, taking part in healthy living activities, socializing with friends, finding employment, and practicing mindful recreation. 

Vitalize Kitsap is unique in that we have an individual approach that meets each participant where they are and asks them where they want to go in life. Together with our staff, the participant (member) and their caregivers we develop a Personal Goal Plan (PGP) to identify each individual’s areas of strength and potential growth in the seven domains of our core values. Our  trained and dedicated staff incorporates individual goals into weekly programming.
