Our Mission and Vision

We strive to help every individual, regardless of age or ability, to improve his/
her overall quality of life and to fulfill his/her aspirations. All people have basic
needs. We believe in self-determination, and encourage those we serve to identify
and to prioritize those needs. We believe in working with them to meet their needs
through positive approaches, encouraging independence, allowing them to learn
from their mistakes, and minimizing their dependence upon others.

We believe that learning can and should be fun. We integrate our services in a
community based setting, utilizing available free community resources whenever
possible, and assisting in building support systems by connecting them to
community organizations as appropriate. We also believe in encouraging our
clients to give back to the community through volunteerism, often times creating
and then utilizing these opportunities to teach as well.
