Our Values

Respect:

We provide a caring and understanding environment for those experiencing mental illness and support optimistic expectations for recovery and successful, sustainable employment.  We respect the needs of employers by supporting them in creating and maintaining work environments that offer opportunities for mutual success.

Self-determination and independence: 

We embrace a client-centered approach that supports the individual to make choices by assisting them to make informed decisions and respect the decisions they make.

Integration:

We believe that everyone has a meaningful place in the community and in community life.  We support the rights of those living with a mental illness for full integration into community life and we support the role gainful employment plays in this process.

Visionary:

We strive to continuously improve and be on the leading edge of practice, as we work in collaboration with our clients, employers, referral sources, other service agencies and funders.

Accountability:

We are transparent and honest in all of our actions with our staff, our Board, our clients, our funders and our communities.  We provide information that can be trusted.   We will do what we say we will do.  We support transparency and accountability within the organization through on-going measurement and evaluation.
