Objective
To provide innovative, individualized, and comprehensive support to individuals with developmental disabilities who recognize their right to lead an independent and productive life, and are committed to taking control of their future.
Mission Statement

To provide support services in a manner that honors the expression of choice and control without compromising health and safety.

Philosophy

We all have the right to be independent and to make decisions that pertain to our lives.  True independence requires the successful application of various skills.  Once these skills are identified, practiced, and attained, the ability to transfer them into making appropriate life choices will follow.  Appropriate choice in life eliminates learned dependency, and leads to the acquisition of independence.

Support services can unintentionally create frustration because to approach is often fragmented.  Skills acquired are not retained due to infrequent application in daily living situations.  Sometimes a skill is not recognized as one of importance because its purpose in our everyday life is not clear.  A “hands-on” approach is vital to both learning and retention.
