About Golden Rule Services
Golden Rule Services, Inc. was founded in 1995 by Daniel and Barbara Armond.
Our Philosophy and Mission Statement
Our philosophy is "to treat people as we would like to be treated".
Our mission is to provide opportunities to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities for growth and independence in their community.
Individuals are treated with care and compassion - not pity. They are seen as people who want no less dignity, respect, or quality of life than we ourselves desire and, in most cases, are able to have with very little effort. Our task is one of discovery: discover what a person values and what things are hassles to them; their discovery will be the availability of desired choices. We strive to listen to each individual and let them create their own place based on specific dreams, desires, and needs.
The difference and uniqueness in the approach of Golden Rule Services, Inc. is that instead of focusing on the deficits or 'disabilities' of an individual, we focus on the potential and abilities; instead of dwelling on past failures, we focus on future successes. Emphasis is placed on a person's capabilities rather than his/her limitations.
Golden Rule Services, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency that provides services to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. These services include:
