A basic concept of Pathfinder is that all people, regardless of individual differences and intellectual abilities, have an inalienable right to programs and services which are consistent with their needs and helps them to achieve their maximum potential. Pathfinder, seeks to provide the best possible programs and services for individuals we serve with developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs to expand their growth opportunities. Pathfinder’s focus always remains on helping to enrich the quality of life for the people we serve.

Underlying these concepts are the beliefs that:

  • All human beings have intrinsic worth regardless of intellectual ability
  • All human beings have some potential for development
  • With few exceptions, every human being has both the ability and the duty to contribute something of value to his fellow man.
