In 1978, Steve Ammend and Deni Tucker co-founded Northwest Passage. Both Steve and Deni 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. Steve and Deni served Northwest Passage for nearly forty years and we’re grateful for their time and energy.

“Hope to me has meant an opportunity to change one’s life for the better.”
