Mission – WAACO (Washington Attorneys Assisting Community Organizations) improves the quality of life in Washington communities by providing access to free business legal services for nonprofits and microenterprises.

  2. We value the work that nonprofits and microenterprises do to create positive change for their communities.
  3. We value community partnerships.
  4. We value our volunteer attorneys.

WAACO changed names to Wayfind, before joining forces with NAC to become Communities Rise.
