Our focus has been on providing excellent services within the person centered and family centered framework. We pride ourselves on our “enabling” philosophy, developing new and innovative services which encourage maximum self direction for the person with disability and their family. We maintain our mantra to keep people with disability “front and center” of our thinking and our service delivery.
