How does it work?
We believe in the intrinsic potential in each person and are passionate in our mission of empowering others. Personal choice, independence, community integration and quality of life are all core values that inform the care we provide on all levels. These values are the bedrock of the Positive Behavioral Support (PBS), an approach we use to guide the development and implementation of our all our support services.
