NEV BELIEVES: n  People thrive when they make their own choices; people with disabilities are capable of, and have the right to, make their own decisions – where they live, work and recreate. n  Supports and services are designed first and foremost for people with disabilities – not the organization, the staff, or loved ones. n  People with disabilities should have the same access to education, jobs, recreation, housing, and transportation as other members of the community. n  Engaging and participating in community life with an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with friends, volunteers, and co-workers has a positive impact on people with disabilities and on the greater community. n  All NEV services will be integrated and NEV-run property will be used as a center for housing, programs, services, and recreation for participants and members of the broader community. n  Well-trained and motivated employees make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and ensure a high quality of life.
