We Believe Every Person
Many in our community are born with developmental disabilities such as mental retardation, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and autism; others are born to parents with these conditions. Each of these individuals has the ability to function in, be a part of, and contribute to society. Pearl Buck Center recognizes and nurtures the abilities of each individual, rather than focusing on their disabilities. This benefits the individuals with disabilities, their children and the larger community we share.
WE BELIEVE EVERY PERSON
Has worth and value
Deserves to be treated with courtesy and respect
Should have the opportunity to work
Has the right to make their own choices
Has the right to be independent
Has the potential for growth
Can learn in a supportive environment
Can contribute to the community
