In 1978, Deni and Steve Ammend co-founded Northwest Passage. Both Deni and Steve shared a singular goal – to establish a community of healing, education, and individualized care and treatment grounded in the formation of healthy adult relationships and mentoring for children and teens experiencing difficult behavioral and emotional problems. Deni and Steve served Northwest Passage for nearly forty years and we’re grateful for their time and energy.
