We Believe In…

  • INCLUSION ~ we all have a responsibility to create inclusive and welcoming communities
  • CITIZENSHIP ~ being a citizen means enjoying all the rights and responsibilities that most people take for granted
  • ACCESS ~ everyone needs and has a right to live in a safe and comfortable place that they can call home ~ to engage in meaningful work for fair pay ~ to enjoy reciprocal relationships ~ to have access to public facilities ~ and to live a full life in the community
  • LIFELONG LEARNING ~ we are committed to fostering, supporting, and maintaining a culture of lifelong learning to support growth, innovation and excellence
  • LEADERSHIP ~ achieving truly inclusive and welcoming communities for all citizens requires leadership by everyone. WE are committed to demonstrating, supporting and developing leadership
  • COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE ~ we believe innovative solutions to the issues faced by people with intellectual disabilities will be found in new relationships and partnerships
