Our mission is to assure that each individual can experience all of the rights granted to them as a citizen. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience and participate in a community life, and we wish to provide such a life for those in our care. Our goal is to assure that each individual is able to experience the highest possible quality of life under our care. Allowing individuals to be nurtured in a loving and supportive environment while giving them the freedom to hold their own system of values helps us to prevent the deprivation of any of our individuals’ privacy, dignity, privileges, or rights.
We wish to provide each individual with the opportunity to maximize their abilities to their fullest potential, and hope to improve the quality of life of each person in doing so. Providing high-quality care and training programs set the standard for what we expect out of our facilities, and we devote ourselves to providing superior services each day. As we assist each individual with identifying their needs, we work as a team to create and enact a care plan while our staff does their utmost to help each individual succeed and progress on.
While keeping in mind the personal needs and concerns of the individuals in our care, our staff works to consistently supply all the services that are needed by each individual each day. The individuals that stay with us are encouraged to stay in contact with friends and family while under our care to ensure that they do not become isolated from the community and their loved ones. CRF works tirelessly to provide the adequate supplementary services that adhere to the many varying needs of our individuals while keeping them within the state and as close to home as we possibly can. It is our duty to provide each individual with the best services that we can by utilizing all the resources at our disposal to maximize each individuals’ growth. The programs that we employ are not chosen based on artificial or inappropriate factors, but rather on the degree to which each program is able to foster the growth of our developmentally disabled individuals.
As time passes and the people and things around us change, so must we; our policies, programs, and practices all must change and adapt to ensure that each individual that we care for can receive the best possible care and are not be held back by obligatory or outdated rules. We work to eliminate this problem as well by individually tailoring each care plan to fit the specific needs of those we serve. We do not keep services that are not useful or simply do not work. Any service that we provide must support a community life and utilize the many resources that our communities offer us in order for us to properly integrate individuals into the community.
The full amount to which any individual wishes to be a part of the community is ultimately up to them; however, we hope to see an interest not only in making day-to-day decisions, but in major life choices as well. We also hope that we can help each individual to feel confident enough to develop friendships, follow their aspirations, and preform civic duties as they see fit. With these services, we hope to help each individual in reaching their maximum development and realizing their true potential regardless of any disabilities they may have.
The best resource that developmentally disabled individuals have at their disposable is their home and family. It is the duty of our staff to provide a normalized experience for each of the individuals that come through our doors. We feel that CRF has both the resources and abilities to assist individuals in their progress. Before an individual leaves our care, we intend to expand their decision-making abilities, help them gain more control over the circumstances in their life, establish and maintain positive and meaningful relationships, advance and develop competencies, and help them to experience a true sense of belonging, security, and respect.
