Person centered planning is an opportunity through which people join in intentional efforts to support, expand and deepen the direct and visible contribution individuals make to their communities. It recognizes, embraces and celebrates the strengths, needs, dreams and desires of each individual. This ultimately leads to individuals experiencing greater inclusion as valued members of their communities.
DREAM and SEEK’s main foundation is ensuring that each individual has a voice in planning and developing their days and lives. We will provide as little or as much support as each individual might need for his/her journey so that he/she can begin to imagine all of life’s possibilities.
