Our Mission

Cultivate a dynamic community where people can make meaningful contributions and lead fulfilling lives.

Our Philosophy

We believe: 

  • People with developmental disabilities have talents and skills that if recognized and developed, will allow them to be contributing members of a community.
  • Programs which best assist individuals with developmental disabilities in securing a full life, are independence producing (economically and personally); placed or implemented in the actual locations and environments where community and life activities regularly occur; accepting of personal choice and the natural consequences of those choices.
  • Individuals who assist those with developmental disabilities to reach their fullest potential, are those who:  hold reasonably high expectations for them; plan programming in ways that demonstrate a recognition of individuality, freedom of choice, and right to self-determination; maintain knowledge of best practices of the profession; evaluate their efforts regularly to assure program focus and direction.

Our Vision

We will support individuals with developmental disabilities throughout their lives by:

  • Embracing individuality and personal choice
  • Developing community opportunities
  • Fostering relationships

Core Values

As staff we will:

  • Ensure that health and well-being come first.
  • Be good stewards of the public’s trust and money.
  • Do our job to the best of our ability and value those who do it differently.
  • Imagine new possibilities and strive to be better.
  • Own our actions and behave ethically.
  • Promote our valuable mission with others throughout the county.
