More About our Values:
We believe all people have equal rights.
All people are created equal in rights, dignity, and the potential to achieve great things. True opportunity requires that we all have equal access to the benefits, burdens and responsibilities of our society regardless of race, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or other aspects of what we look like or where we come from.
We believe all people have gifts.
All people have gifts to share; sometimes it’s just a matter of finding the right opportunities and connections. The Chilliwack Society for Community Living endeavours to create safe and secure environments so people are free to share their gifts with their community.
We believe that learning is lifelong.
The Chilliwack Society for Community Living believes lifelong learning is the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Although sometimes learning requires support, ultimately, it enhances not only social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development, but competitiveness and employability.
We believe that accountability is essential.
Accountability and transparency are essential to quality services within any human service field. The Chilliwack Society for Community Living understands that we are ultimately responsible to all individuals in support, their families and other stakeholders for all our decisions and actions.
We believe respectful relationships form the foundation for person-centred supports.
Our highly committed and dedicated team of community support professionals offer people a caring and individual service, designed to meet their personal and unique needs. This person-centred approach is the foundation of our service and ensures a strong, caring and shared respectful relationship with the people we support.
