Mission, Vision, Values
This vision reflects our hopes and intentions. It may not always accurately portray the way things are at Abilitree so much as the way we want them to be. We are less than satisfied with the way things are and our vision provides us with energy and determination we need to create a better world for people with disabilities. If we fail, at times, to measure up to this vision, we will need to take up the challenge in new and more innovative ways in order to ensure that our vision becomes a reality.
Abilitree empowers people with disabilities to grow their independence, productivity and inclusion in community life.
VisionAbilitree envisions a society where all people with disabilities have the opportunity to develop their full capabilities with independence, productivity and more meaningful involvement in local community events and activities.
Our goal is to be the premier provider in Central Oregon of diverse programs and services to all people with disabilities. We are committed to researching, fostering and implementing those practices that are on the forefront of our field.
We are led by a caring and professional management team that inspires all staff and volunteers to be passionate about supporting our mission. In all that we do, we strive for excellence, innovation and collaboration.
We recognize our staff as one of our most valuable resources and help each individual staff member to become the best they can be.
We are guided by the voices of those we serve. In doing so, we involve all of our stakeholders including staff, volunteers, community partners and most importantly, our clients.
We continually strive to eliminate all barriers, including physical, attitudinal and organizational that stand in the way of full participation by those with disabilities.
