Our Vision 

  • A person is not identified as having a disability but is seen as a person.
  • Employers seek qualified employees, regardless of disability and provide reasonable accommodations.
  • Workplaces and public spaces, as well as programs and services, are accessible. Transportation is readily available.
  • Government agencies provide willing assistance and supports.
  • Mentoring and self-advocacy training are readily available.
  • We change how we build homes so that all are accessible, affordable and homes are available near jobs or on a transit route.

Our Core Beliefs

  • Disabilities are a natural part of life. Anyone can acquire a disability at any time.
  • Many of the difficulties faced by people with disabilities are a result of attitudes and environments, not the disability.
  • Disabilities positively affect and enhance the diversity of our community.
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to participate, contribute and belong to our community.
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to express his or her strengths, gifts and talents.

Our Mission

  • To promote personal empowerment and positive social change for persons with disabilities.
