Clallam Mosaic Policies
Clallam Mosaic's mission is to provide opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to access educational resources to: 1) build skills, 2) develop confidence to make choices independently, and, 3) lead a full life. Clallam Mosaic serves as a leader for community outreach and education by creating opportunities to minimize social isolation and stereotyping.
Clallam Mosaic values people with developmental disabilities and respects them as individuals with rights, dreams, and the ability to make decisions independently. Clallam Mosaic will practice People First Language. Clallam Mosaic will practice "Support" rather than "Do it for you" approaches and will support particpants in solving their own conflictss. As part of the program Clallam Mosaic has policies and procedures in place so that everyone will be safe and operate within the constraints of insurance coverage.
