We Are Agents of Social Change

We believe in inclusion, equity, dignity and respect for every human life.  Where there is injustice, we strive to be agents of change on behalf of individuals with disabilities.  Everyone deserves an equal chance at a happy life.  We believe every individual needs:

  • To live in and integrate with a community of their choice.

  • To live with housemates in safe and adequate housing.

  • To live with, learn from, and have friends of all races.

  • To form real relationships.

  • To have job opportunities.

  • To be valued as individuals and recognized for their contributions.

  • To maintain family relationships.

  • To socialize with friends.

  • To live free of abuse and neglect.

  • To privacy and the enjoyment of life.

  • To learn and grow.

  • To companionship with people and pets.

  • To opportunities for creativity and self-expression.

  • To clean drinking water and healthy food.

  • To an abundance of choices.

  • To simple pleasures like developing a personal style, enjoying a warm cup of coffee, or dating.

  • To live independent lives with dignity and respect and free from discrimination or segregation.
