REALIZING THE DREAM
We became concerned about the services available to improve and progress the quality of life for our children when we can no longer provide care in our home.
We became concerned about the limited options available to our students once they leave the school system.
As a community...
We became concerned about the ways we can contribute to the emotional, financial, social, spiritual, residential, and vocational needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
We dreamed of a family-oriented neighborhood where our adult child would be cared for by trained, dedicated caregivers and of a place where their emotional, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational needs will be met.
We dreamed of vocational opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities to gain independence and work ethics through meaningful employment, and of a workplace where each adult may be productive, no matter their level of ability.
As a community...
We dreamed of the privilege to serve individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and of the opportunity to contribute financially, emotionally, and spiritually to the well-being of each individual.
