Mission Statement

The mission of Special Neighbors is to empower and assist persons with developmental disabilities to live and participate in the community with dignity.

Description

Special Neighbors, Inc. provides residential supports to individuals with developmental disabilities. While we serve 87 people, we view each person as unique, which includes their personality, their interests and the supports they need. Our staff are provided training from the time they are hired and throughout their employment on the importance of building a relationship with the person in order to create an environment where the person feels safe and loved. A quality life begins with quality services from support staff where a safe and comfortable home is provided, but culminates when we take the time to listen to each person, whether their communication is verbal or non-verbal, and really focus on what’s important in their lives. Managers, coordinators and direct support staff use a variety of person centered tools to help develop the plan and communicate each person’s outcomes to all persons involved.
