Mission, Vision, Philosophy of Care
Our mission is to assist the families
of special needs children and adults
in gaining the life skills and education
necessary to achieve the highest
quality of life for themselves and
those they take care of.
We envision a world where families
impacted by Developmental
Disabilities are supported inclusively,
in addition to the individual member
with the disability. We believe these
families can do more than just
endure the chronic stressors of a
disability, and can actually thrive
and develop positive outcomes from
its presence in their lives.
Philosophy of Care
We believe in five guiding principles that contribute to our overall cultural capabilities and a culturally inclusive environment:
Respect is an integral part of daily life within our organization. We strive to instill a feeling of deep admiration for all those within our community as well as their abilities and achievements.
We believe in the virtue of advocacy. Our organization supports causes and policies that our members, staff, and community hold dear.
We believe communication is highly impactful in our world today and our ability to communicate and deliver information is far more advanced than ever before.
Quality and Safety of Service
We believe the founding principles of our organization rest on quality and safety of service. It is our promise to our staff, members, and community to protect them from danger, risk, and injury.
We ensure that our organization values diversity in all facets, including but not limited to the services we deliver, the employees we train, the programs we utilize, and the individuals we represent.
We believe that we are a direct reflection of the type of business we run. With
that in mind, we work hard to ensure that our reflection is something
we are proud of.
