We believe all people deserve the right to achieve their fullest potential. Therefore, we exist for the purpose of providing individualized services that are designed to maximize each person’s daily living and vocational skills in order to be integrated into the community to the fullest extent possible.
Each person referred for Headwaters Services will participate in a person-centered planning process that will include family and friends of the person so the information gathered will provide a more complete picture of the person. The information will be condensed into a person-centered profile and plan that will guide all of the activities we do with the person going forward. The profile and plan become living documents that will be updated on a regular basis to reflect the learning and progress of the person being served.
The following are the current members on the Board of Directors for Headwaters, Inc. and The Headwaters Foundation, Inc.
