Who We Are

AIMES is committed to creating an environment where all people, regardless of background and “ability” can grow, make choices, gain personal independence at home and be a valued and contributing member to his/her community.

We believe that all human life is sacred and for human spirit to triumph over ignorance and intolerance, and have equal and unconditional value. All must be treated with dignity and respect and be able to be the architect of his/her own future and to advocate for his/her dreams and beliefs. We believe that it is important to recognize and value individual differences and diversity as a means of providing the opportunities and experiences to develop skills that lead to increased independence and self-esteem.  Our service and support values are responsive to and reflect the diversity of the individuals, families, and communities served.  We strive to assure that all levels of our organization reflect this diversity.

Within our intent is a passionate commitment to decrease dependence of individuals on formal services, ensuring that we will contribute to the strength, independence, community presence, and fulfillment to each individual’s maximum capacity.
