Scott Livengood, Chief Executive Officer
Scott Livengood has served as the Chief Executive Officer for Alpha Supported Living Services since 2001. Since coming to the agency, he has seen the agency grow from serving 13 people living in three homes with just over 30 employees to now being the largest non-profit supported living agency in Washington serving over 200 individuals residentially across over 90 homes in King, Snohomish and Spokane Counties with approximately 800 employees. The agency has also expanded into representative payee, Community Access and Licensed Staffed Residential services, bringing the total number of individuals served by Alpha to over 360.
Scott has worked in the field of developmental disabilities for almost 30 years. Before coming to Alpha, Scott worked as a certification evaluator for contract compliance of supported living agencies and as a Program Supervisor for another supported living agency in the area. He originally started as a direct support professional, so he is acutely aware of the challenges and rewards of providing direct support for people with developmental disabilities. Scott has previously served as the Chair of the statewide provider’s association, the Community Residential Services Association (CRSA) for four terms and currently serves as the Legislative Chair for CRSA, a role he has served in for over 10 years.
During his term as CRSA Chair, the association received the Wyckoff Award for Advocacy from Provail. In 2009, Scott was presented with an award from The Arc of Washington “in recognition of outstanding contributions in supporting people with developmental disabilities and their families.” He also received Alpha’s Outstanding Service Award in 2009. For two terms, Scott served as the Chair of the Community Advocacy Coalition (CAC), which provides a platform for advocacy organizations to share information, educate one another on issues of mutual concern, and coordinate their legislative agendas to give people with disabilities a stronger voice in government affairs. Since 2007, Scott has served as the state representative to ANCOR, the national association representing service providers supporting people with developmental disabilities and was appointed to the Board of Representatives in 2015, representing Washington to the national association since that time.
