What We Do

What We Do

Our approach is simple. We help each person make choices about how they want to live. We do this by providing supports to people where they live, work, and play. Our supports are based on the principles of person-centered thinking where the person served and / or their family/caregiver directs the services they want and need. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in society and live an active and vibrant life based on their interests and abilities. To that end, we are committed to being flexible to accommodate the changing needs and expectations of the people we support.
