Philosophy and Mission

Our Philosophy

All people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and thrive best when they participate and are embraced by the community.  Programs and services operated by ALTEC are founded on the belief that all human beings, regardless of their level of disability, have basic human rights and the potential for growth and development.  Whenever possible, work and volunteer experiences should occur within an individual’s community alongside non-disabled individuals.

Our Mission

ALTEC recognizes that opportunities need to be established or created for people to become better connected and involved in their communities.  Therefore, ALTEC will strive to develop and foster relations that will allow us to bridge any gaps and offer meaningful community-integrated services.
