Support for Loved Ones

Serving individuals with disabilities for over 20 years


Dear parents, guardians, family, and friends,

PASS would like to express gratitude, and the warmest thanks to Dr. Warren Rushold. After 24 wonderful years of growth and service to our community, Dr. Rushold will be retiring as Vice President of the Board of Directors.

Inspired by the love they had for their son, and the empathy they shared with the greater community of individuals with developmental disabilities, on May 29, 1997, Parents for Alternate Support Solutions was founded by Dr. Rushold, Ray Berg, Mary Guerra, Marilyn Moen, and Barbara Weikum. As the last of the founding board members to retire from PASS leadership, a legacy of dedication and care is left behind for us to uphold.

From everyone at PASS, thank you, and we wish you the very best in retirement.


Matching TIE-DYE Shirts YAY!!!
