Our Role & Impact

Our Role
Disability is a complex and challenging issue. Whether arising from physical or intellectual impairment, disability has both social, and health implications. Within the world of those impacted by a disability, there are powerful human rights issues presented, including social exclusion, and increased vulnerability to poverty and homelessness. The complex interactions between the functional limitations arising from a person’s disability and their social and physical environment has multiple dimensions and is far more complicated than a typical health problem.

Our role is to create a bridge spanning this disconnection from community, which impacts many individuals with disabilities. We also provide effective and individualized support to promote an optimal quality of life. Throughout the years our role has evolved to one of facilitating the balance between individual choices and vulnerabilities, while promoting a reciprocal people-centered approach of respect and sensitivity for all involved.
