TRE Mission Statement
Advocating for independence and inclusion, TRE partners with children and adults who have a variety of disabilities, delays, mental health or long-term care needs. We do this using a person-centered approach in coordinating care, promoting choices, and collaborating with community partners.
The process of creating and finalizing a new mission statement began in summer 2019 when TRE expanded services to include not only people with intellectual and developmental disabilities but also people with mental health and long term care needs. Our expansive and thorough approach included an internal workgroup along with internal and external surveys of the people we serve and their families, community partners, Board Members, and TRE staff to better understand how TRE’s services are viewed. From November 2019 to October 2020, multiple surveys and opportunities for feedback were used to design the above Mission Statement.
This statement is based on the following commonalities:
- Advocating is an important role we play for the people in we serve, both to support independence as well as ensuring inclusion in communities of choice.
- Partnering is key to our success. We partner with the people we serve to ensure the supports and services we are coordinating fit priorities and we partner with community agencies and groups to ensure all possible resources are available.
- Using a person-centered approach is key to our values and therefore must be stated clearly.
- Describing key actions we take to accomplish our mission is vital – coordinating care, promoting choice, and collaborating with community partners.
We appreciate the candid feedback from everyone who took the time to share their thoughts and suggestions throughout this process and are grateful for the the role it played in a comprehensive, representative mission statement. This declaration of why we exist truly reflects our dedication to excellence on behalf of the people we serve and our commitment to building valued relationships across Southern Colorado.
