Changes Due to Public Health Emergency - Closed for Walk-Ins

We are closely following the COVID-19 public health crisis. Following new mandates and guidelines by the governor, county executives, and public health officials, NWIRP will be shifting to deliver some of our services remotely. All NWIRP offices (in Granger, Seattle, Tacoma, and Wenatchee) will be closed for walk-ins, until further notice.

NWIRP will continue to take community members’ calls.

If you already have a scheduled appointment with a NWIRP legal advocate, your appointment will be kept (over the phone, or in-person if necessary). Please check directly with the appropriate legal advocate or call the front desk.
