We at Benhaven are so appreciative of what you do to provide our residents with safe and nurturing homes where they can learn new skills, be respected community members and be celebrated for their accomplishments; and for our IFS participants to enjoy all aspects of community living while being supported to remain with their families or live independently.
Benhaven’s mission is to enable people with autism to participate in community life, exercise positive control over their own lives, have meaningful relationships and associations, be gainfully employed and experience happiness and personal satisfaction. A vision that everyone wants for themselves and their loved ones. The individuals we serve can only realize this quality of life with the support and assistance of others. You as direct support professionals make a true difference because your work and dedication helps our residents and program participants lead more enriched and fulfilling lives. Our mission cannot be realized without your full support and commitment.
You and your work have positive impact every day. We appreciate your enthusiasm, creativity, positive approach and hard work. We thank you for your patience, ability to teach and instruct, and your belief in the individuals you support. Direct support is challenging, sometimes frustrating and always demands you give your best effort. We thank you for your dedication and professionalism. We hope you know the important role you have in this organization and that your contributions bring you both fulfillment and satisfaction.
