  • Be person-centered, with strengths and needs dictating the types and mix of services provided. 

  • Promote early identification and intervention to enhance the opportunity for positive outcomes. 

  • Provide access to to a comprehensive array of services that promote physical and emotional wellbeing through mental health and substance abuse services while addressing identified social, educational, and recreational needs of all ages.
