Mission & Goals

We believe...

...That social involvement is linked to successful employment, independence, self-confidence and inclusion.  

... Friends are the sunshine of life.

...Learning is a life long process and the knowledge empowers.

...Community involvement creates a higher quality of life and opens new doors.

...People with intellectual disabilities who …

  • continue to learn new skills

  • develop supportive social networks

  • are integrated into their communities

have a greater chance of successfully living in a supported or independent setting.

...A community of individuals with intellectual disabilities can be an inclusive part of the community-at-large and add to the fabric of society.
