Our Story What We Do
We believe every individual is due respectful support that begins with the recognition that individuals with disabilities are not abnormal or deficient but, instead, reflect the normal diversity of the human community.
Our basic philosophical underpinnings are rooted in the idea of maximum independence with minimum professional supports.
Our philosophy supports using existing services where appropriate, and using "natural" supports such as friends, family, and peers wherever possible.
We believe in encouraging family involvement and working towards enhancement of an individual’s social role within a network of family, friends, advocates and the community.
That being said, brain injury is a highly specific treatment area. Most generic service providers and peer or family supports require professional guidance and training to provide effective and meaningful support. That is where we come in.
There is support and understanding that you cannot imagine.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact a specific member of our staff.
