"Our mission is to provide opportunities to individuals with
intellectual and/or developmental disabilities for growth and independence
in their community. Our task is one of discovery: our discovery of what a
person values and what things are hassles to him; his discovery will be of
his desired choices. We strive to listen to each individual and let him
create his own place based on his dreams, desires and needs."
These heartfelt words were spoken by Daniel Armond, the co-founder and
president of Golden Rule Services, to the families of the men and women with special needs
working within the program to achieve independence and a higher quality of
Golden Rule Services offers these men and women a unique opportunity to
learn and grow under the watchful eye of the organization's trained
professional staff and caring staff members. Every participant in the
programs at Golden Rule Services is seen not as a person with a disability
but as a person with the potential for achievement.
"The difference and uniqueness in the approach of Golden Rule Services is
that instead of focusing on the deficits or disabilities of an individual,
we focus on the potential and abilities; instead of dwelling on past
failures, we focus on future successes," states Armond. "Emphasis is placed
on a person's capabilities rather than his or her limitations."
