A major shout out to direct support professionals!

CEI recently created a consolidated statement of our work, below is Team CEI's Creed.

At CEI, we believe that by creating opportunities for meaningful community connection and a sense of belonging, we are witness to positive change and growth.

We believe that the relationships we build with the people we support are reciprocal and that we learn from each of them every day.

We believe that the work we do supports social change and teaches our community about disability rights and inclusion.

We believe in the power of personal narratives to highlight the diversity of the people we support.

We believe in creating a platform for people to discover, demonstrate, and build skills and strengths.

We believe in promoting equity for people who experience disabilities.

We believe that when given the right supports, anyone can work!
