Our Mission
 
Woodhaven – a caring team advocating for those with disabilities:
  • Enhancing lives
  • Respecting individuality
  • Providing quality opportunities for choice
  • Promoting community membership

At Woodhaven, our mission is not just about providing supports, it is about working toward a fundamental shift in how the community perceives people with disabilities. We know that change isn’t going to happen just by talking about all of the things the individuals supported are capable of. Real change happens when the men and women with developmental disabilities we support have the opportunity to SHOWCASE their abilities – and they ARE – they’re shopping for their own groceries; they’re working at community jobs; they’re playing sports and going to the gym; they’re active in their churches; and volunteering throughout the community.

Every day, the men and women we support are living full, independent lives as active members of our community. With every shirt they buy, hour they work, and life they touch through volunteering, they’re changing the face of ability.
