It is our promise to enable people with disabilities to experience life, employment, and independence within the community. In order to deliver on this promise in a way that honors our people’s rights and needs, our top priority is the hiring of compassionate, highly-trained employees.
Hands of Heartland is privately owned and operated. This allows us to keep our focus on what it has been since its inception: the person.
Team members of Hands of Heartland will facilitate as educators, and assist the people we serve through choices, dignity, and teachings. Through these mechanisms, we will empower the people we serve as they embark on their journeys in independence.
Hands of Heartland believes that people with developmental disabilities are people first. We believe that all persons have the right to live, be employed, learn, grow within their surroundings, and interact within the community.
Our belief in the Family Net is strong, and we encourage our people and their families to be involved in every aspect of the delivery of our services.
We believe that the quality of our staff is of the utmost importance — hiring only the most motivated, knowledgeable, and trained people in order to uphold creativity, innovation, and determination in the delivery of our services.
We at Hands of Heartland will always place the person before the program — striving daily to embody the message our name states.
