Our mission is to partner with adults with diverse abilities to live healthy, self determined lives. We believe in the potential of every human to contribute and take pleasure in their productivity and relationships, independently of their abilities and disabilities.
We share our lives with people with special needs and they with us.
We are a household — a family — bound together by mutual respect, work and love.
The most important thing in life is relationships. Everything else is how we put substance and value around those relationships.

Volunteers are given 24 vacation days (when volunteering for 12 months) in addition to their 2 days off each week. These vacation days are often used to travel. The Berkshire region of Western Massachusetts has amazing music and arts entertainment. We are also very close to NYC and Boston for more fun. For quieter moments in time off, most folks enjoy visiting the gym, museums, and libraries. There are great options to explore here.
