Service Philosophy

- To place clients and family at the center of all we do and recognize the services of the individual is most effective when we include the family/support network

- To base services in the community, available in non-traditional sites, least restrictive and at convenient locations and times

- To be visible in the community and form partnerships, which promote the achievement of service delivery

- To ensure services are delivered in an integrated manner that does not dwell on disability categories, but on individual client and family needs

- To promote freedom of choice for clients and families

- To serve individuals who have the fewest available resources and the greatest need

- To utilize ‘best clinical practices’ in the delivery of services

- To promote utilization of natural supports in the community

- To operate group homes as ‘homes’ and not ‘facilities’
