2019 Impact Award 
Access Services: Adult Behavioral Health Service Line

Our service line hopes to serve communities beyond just the services we provide.  We wish to partner with others serving in the same spaces to magnify our individual impacts and to realize the public and private collaboration that strengthens individuals and families.  We know that real change for individuals, families, and communities requires all of us. 

Philosophy of Care
The philosophy of care is a set of good ideas that informs us of the way we should do our work. The philosophy of care inspires us to pursue excellence in all aspects of our work and directs our path as we move forward. The philosophy encompasses the entire agency, our staff and associates and the people we serve. It provides a standard for working together.

Our philosophy of care values all people and their uniqueness. It emphasizes the whole person – physical, emotional, social and spiritual and focuses on the key helping relationship between staff and the people we serve.
