CLAN BEO VALUES
Everyone has a capacity for love and a good life when well connected with their own people for the long haul, who believe in them, celebrate good times together, stand together when the going get tough, and value them for who they are in the place where they come from
OUR JOB IN CLAN BEO
Our job is to bend over backwards to promote progressive, respectful social integration for citizens who live with the experience of disability and to stand by others in our society who have been devalued by the communities we are part of
WHAT WE SEE - ASSUMPTIONS
The love of family and friends is the most reliable, natural, and empowering source of support for any person.
Any person can enjoy the challenge of new ways of living, learning, and personal development right through their life.
Each person living in the community makes a difference in the first instance by being merely present.
