Our mission is to empower and enrich the lives of the people we serve. We empower the people we serve with options and choices. Through enriching experiences, they spend time doing what they love.
Our philosophy of service is that we partner with the people we serve, their families, and our community to help individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities build and live the lives they choose as active members in their community.
Our programs at Goldie Floberg blend and teach humanistic psychology with the proven efficacy of behaviorism. Specifically, we have a responsibility to meet, not only the basic human needs of each person served, but also help each person craft a life of meaning that allows them to flourish. The teachings of behaviorism provide evidence-based practices that can be used to build supports and remove barriers to achieving a fulfilling life.
In addition to our mission statement, and the teachings of humanistic and behavioral psychology, our philosophy is also guided by our values.
