We are guided by the people we support
- We listen to what people are saying through their words and actions in order to understand what is important to and for them.
- We build on the strengths, gifts, talents, skills, and contributions of each person and those who know and care about them.
- We support people to assume positive control over their everyday lives, to make informed choices, including but not limited to decisions about where and with whom to live; involvement in choosing their own supporters; who their friends are, and pursuit of their own dreams and goals.
Every person will choose a group of people, a Circle of Support, that may include family members, friends, and support staff who will assist them to express their dreams and aspirations, to set and accomplish goals, and build lasting relationships in community.
