We see a Virginia where individuals of all ages and abilities have the supports we need to enjoy the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and the opportunity to have a good life.
Having a good life means different things to different people. It includes joy and happiness, health and safety, hopes and dreams, meaningful activities, intimate relationships with family and friends, having a home, transportation, work, money (bank accounts), and the ability to contribute to family and community.
We believe that a good life is best led by the voice of the individual and by following these person-centered principles.
Individual choices and descriptions of a good life are
respected and followed.
Relationships with families, friends, and people in
the community are very important and at
the center of planning.
Personal choice and control are supported.
Talents and Gifts
The experience, talents, and contributions of
individuals, families, and communities are
strengthened and supported.
There is shared responsibility for supports and choices.
