We agree to make a commitment to celebrate each individual’s abilities by encouraging the individuals, staff and families to fulfill their hopes and dreams for the future as full, participating members of our community. Our aspiration is to be the foremost provider of support and services to individuals with developmental disabilities.
Our mission is to create the support and services to affect positive changes in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and our local community, so that these individuals can reach their maximum potential and level of independence.
