The mission behind our work is to support the human creativity and concern for others that in turn leads to the best service possible. We believe that all human beings are of equal worth; and we are committed to providing an atmosphere of empowerment, trust, and respect that reflects that belief. In practice, this philosophy translates into encouraging, assisting, supporting, educating, and allowing a person to make commitments and to take responsibilities. It means allowing a client of one of our programs to do things which may, at times, seem risky, knowing that the gains from the attempt (success or failure) will outweigh the stagnation of the status quo. The challenges are not just for the disempowered individuals. The challenges are for all of us. We value the diverse strengths and talents of our staff as a resource to be developed for the good of all our stakeholders.
