Our History

In 1973, a synergy of concerned parents and citizens fostered a pro-active, service-oriented, community-based program called Flathead Industries. Still flourishing today, this concern and commitment to full inclusion for all its residents is one of the components that makes the Flathead Valley a wonderful place to live. Flathead Industries has changed tremendously over the course of more than forty years, we are constantly growing and evolving.
Flathead Industries is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, governed by a volunteer board of directors which provides a variety of services to persons with disabilities.   Click here for more history
