Babcock Center’s philosophy includes the responsibility to establish a barrier-free and inclusive community striving to empower people with lifelong disabilities to enjoy life by promoting abilities and respecting choice.

Babcock Center encourages full participation in community life by:

  • Providing natural connections and partnerships to develop personal interests and abilities;
  • Establishing a reasonable balance between safety and the risks associated with new opportunities;
  • Supporting individuals to make use of public services, houses of worship, shopping, dining and recreational sites which are available to all members of our community;
  • Supporting individuals to overcome barriers to full community participation such as the need to acquire employment and earn a reasonable level of income, the need for decent and affordable housing, and the need for safe, dependable transportation.

The agency works in partnership with community leaders to promote the dignity and respect of people with disabilities, invite community participation and employ people with disabilities in their workforce.
