At COR, we embrace a language whereby intentional word choices represent a philosophy and practice of valuing those we support. Rather than ‘running group homes’, COR supports individuals living in their own home. Instead of ‘placing clients into programs’, COR assists individuals to discover their own talents and interests, to live according to their own values, and to strive to reach their personal goals.
COR’s support model focuses on ‘houses that become homes’, because they are:
-Based on unconditional love.
-Welcoming and hospitable.
-Focused on sharing and working together.
-Comforting during times of turmoil.
-Forgiving during times of ‘misbehavior’.
-Accepting of the person, no matter what.
-Giving without any demand of receiving.
-Helping each person to become loving toward others.
-Allowing homes to be homes – not intruding with bureaucratic demands.
