The following principles guide the work of MyCare Family Community Supports as we strive to make a positive difference in the lives of all participants with whom we come in contact. Person centered thinking drives our actions by emphasizing the importance of each person. Communities are the first places to seek, identify, and nurture supports and opportunities. We affirm that all people can direct their own supports and thereby encourage and promote true and meaningful participation in the community as essential to person centered practices. Participants of working age are employable; employment is life-enriching. We recognize and embrace Direct Support Professionals as essential team members whose input is values and respected at all levels of planning and implementation of services pertinent to participants they support. We promote and respect the involvement of family members and natural supports to empower participants in the pursuit of active meaningful participation within their community. Initiative and supports are driven by research and data to include the array of promising, evidence-based, and identified best practices.
