OUR STORY

Beth and I met about twenty years ago while working for another Supported Living Provider serving individuals with developmental Disabilities. Very quickly after meeting, we soon realized that we held the same love and conviction for the individuals we served. Oddly, we both connected to the population in a very similar manner and developed deep, meaningful relationships with the individuals we served and with each other. After many months of conversations and sharing of ideas and values, we decided to take the leap and start our own agency. Beth and I hold a strong belief in providing services that will enrich the consumers and employees lives by creating an environment that supports growth, love, learning, friendships and community integration. We believe strongly in the importance of great communication between the agency and our consumers, guardians and Direct Support Professionals (DSP). Our moto is “Building Foundations for Optimal Living” and we truly stand behind that. We have employed an amazing leadership team that goes above and beyond to ensure that the consumers are given many opportunities to live enriched, meaningful lives. Our DSPs are some of the most incredible people you’ll meet. They love the consumers as family and take pride in their chosen profession. We value each and every one of our employees and we are grateful for their never-ending love and devotion to the individuals we serve. Beth and I often are in awe at the opportunity we’ve been given to work with so many incredible people. Our consumers are truly our family and we love each and every one of them. Sometimes we are asked, “Why do you do what you do” and we both admittedly respond, “We can’t imagine doing anything else in this world”. We truly, wholeheartedly love this population with all of our hearts and feel blessed each and every day that we are able to serve.

CORNERSTONES

COMMITMENT

Coming in everyday and seeing an individual smile because you've made an impact in their life. The most rewarding thing from this job for me is how much they have impacted my life. I could not have asked for a better job.

COMPASSION

Seeing the joy and excitement on the consumers faces from a day to day basis is what makes this job. There is never a dull moment and the days are never the same. You definitely find yourself here.

COMMUNITY

Can't say enough good things about this company. The work is rewarding, I get a lot out of what I do every day and feel like I get to make a positive impact on someone's day. There is so much going on every day but in a relaxed, fun manner.
