Our Mission & Values
Breaking through barriers for people with different abilities to contribute, connect and lead lives they choose.
Breaking through Barriers: CHI is about creating opportunities for the people we support with their involvement and considering their interests for working, volunteering and how they spend leisure time or their retirement years. We turn exclusion from opportunities into inclusion by finding ways for people to be accepted and accommodated. If someone isn’t sure about what interests them, we introduce them to new possibilities and help them have new experiences that develop their interests.
Our distinct core beliefs advance our mission every day. We believe:
Everybody Matters: We recognize and value the unique gifts of each person.
Unlimited Options: We create and encourage opportunity through imagination and by taking risks.
Empowering Engagement: We appreciate, and welcome relationships built on open and honest communication, and we nurture them to give people control over their lives.
Better Together: We develop and cultivate a shared vision with a common purpose, and we realize each person’s role is essential in making our vision a reality.
Shared Leadership: We motivate and inspire each other to see a problem, be the solution and do the next right thing.
