Our Programs Pursue Personal Growth
For adults with disabilities, pursuing personal growth and creating a meaningful life is not only challenging, it’s often not even a priority.
At HighPointe, it’s the priority. The opportunity to pursue personal growth is the reason for every program and opportunity we offer.
“I am so proud of the HighPointe staff. They bring an incredible variety of skills and expertise. They are knowledgeable and competent. But, the thing I love the most is how deeply every member of our staff cares for our clients. Our clients really are the reason that each of us gets out of bed ever yday. They are the reason we show up to work excited to begin another day.” – Ken Ziel, Founder and CEO
We believe that the needs, interests, goals, and desires of our clients are predicated first by their humanity, not their disability.
Our clients want to grow, learn, and experience new things. So do we. So do you. That’s why every program we offer incorporates these key values:
- Meaningful Choice: Our clients are given daily opportunities to make meaningful choices based on their dreams, experiences, or personal goals. Their life choices that do not compromise health and safety are respected and valued.
- Increasing Independence: Pursuing personal growth means offering the services and support our clients need to achieve ever-increasing levels of independence. Our programs are designed to provide a high degree of flexibility and choice based on the interests, preferences and strengths of each individual.
