Values

We believe in…

Advocacy.

Education and advocacy bring about the social changed needed to create inclusive communities.

Choice.

All people must be empowered to make choices about their own lives.

Innovation.

A continual commitment to innovation allows us to meet the changing needs of the community.

Relationships.

Relationships connect people to community, build trust, and add value to people’s lives.

Respect.

All people must be treated with respect and dignity and valued for the unique contribution they make.

Today, individuals benefit from advocacy, community involvement, nursing and support therapies, and social and recreational activities.

Hiawatha Homes opened its doors because a group of concerned parents and community members had a vision for a place where individuals with disabilities would be treated as a person first.

They dreamed of quality, loving, comprehensive and individualized care for each person. Over forty years later, the number one goal is still the same: provide quality care for individuals.
