Individualized Support

Our role in each person’s life is unique and personalized. We do not have “programs” into which a person must fit. The people we work for and their families are encouraged and assisted to define what their best life might look like and the role we will play in assisting them to make their vision a reality. We believe that all people have a right to experience a quality of life that reflects pride and accomplishment.


How SACLA can support me:

SACLA believes that it is important that the people we work for and their families are the leaders in determining the role we will play in their lives. We do not operate from a program mentality and are committed to tailoring our services to reflect your unique wishes and support requirements.
