Residential staff set the standard by following our core values of Ethics, Excellence and Ownership. We believe that we have an obligation to ourselves and the stakeholders to have all interactions be guided by respect, honesty, and authenticity.
The residential staff focus on providing quality services. Quality doesn’t just mean accurate work. It means being open to change and growth. The difference between mediocrity and excellence is the fine details and willingness to go beyond. We are stressing this concept to the individuals as well. Everyone needs to feel that they are an important part of the organization, whether working here or living here.
Encouraging Independence, we support individuals to live as independently as possible, to build friendships, pursue dreams and choose how they spend their time. Services for our homes in York County are contracted through the York Mental Health/Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities program.
The Office of Developmental Programs licenses the homes in accordance with Chapter 6400 and Chapter 6100 regulations. Services we provide are guided by the philosophy of Everyday Lives. The basis of this philosophy is to ensure the individuals are paving their own way in every aspect of their lives.
Individuals receive assistance with learning skills, increasing capabilities, and achieving goals that lead toward a more meaningful life.
We believe everyone has the right to be part of a community and has something of value to contribute to society. We also feel that everyone has the right to make choices about things that impact their lives. These choices include jobs, homes, recreational activities, religion, etc.
Everyone should be exposed to a variety of experiences in life. People can make more informed decisions if they understand all the possibilities before them. Everyone has a right to a safe and stable environment. People also have a right to risk. We ensure that risks are reasonable and conducive to the growth of the individual.
Staff play a pivotal role in quality-of-life issues. Everyone at every level has accountability for the role that they play in a person’s life. It is our responsibility to advocate, to research, and to ask questions. We hold ourselves to a high standard of what is acceptable.

A home is more than having a well-stocked kitchen and a clean, attractive environment. To us, a home means sharing your life with people you care about, working with people who are committed to you, and, most importantly, being able to pursue your dreams and live life to the fullest, regardless of your disability.
