The board and staff of Imagine Enterprises envision a world where all
people, including those with significant disabilities, are respected, valued
and provided opportunity in the home, workplace and community. Our mission
underscores our belief that all people can work, achieve self-determination
and obtain control over their resources with Social Security benefits
planning, financial management services and employment consultation. The
Board and staff of Imagine Enterprises are committed to finding new and
innovative approaches to assist people with disabilities and their families
to successfully negotiate the service system and to use their public and
personal resources to acquire a meaningful and productive life in the
community - just like everyone else.
To achieve this vision and implement our mission, the person must be in
control of their destiny. Their dreams and desires are at the center of the
decision-making. Person-directed planning, supported employment, supported
living, transition planning and family support are tools for building the
future of the people we serve and the families who support them. Providing
quality services one person at a time ensures success for the person, the
family and the community. Imagine services will always meet this standard as
well as guide in the selection of partnerships, contracts and agreements
with agencies and organizations who seek similar outcomes.
Imagine approaches service delivery differently than most organizations and
agencies. As a virtual organization, each staff delivers quality services
based on core values, guiding principles, professional expertise in their
subject area and a commitment to the individual and their family. We are a
collective of people with disabilities, parents, family members, advocates
and professionals who desire an organization that steps "out-of-the-box" to
assist in problem-solving and craft life-long solutions. The organizational
motto "Imagine That!" reflects the staff's energetic and creative

Respect is highly valued and mutually expressed between consumer,

The threads of dignity, respect, value, and compassion are woven into every
aspect and activity supporting people with disabilities. Our goal is to
offer services to allow individuals the opportunity to share their gifts and
enrich the places where they live and work - rather than spend a life time
estranged from the community in congregated, segregated settings. Staff,
acting as agents on behalf of the person with the disability and their
family, strive to maximize the resources and implement effective strategies
that are responsive to their requests for employment and community living
supports. Imagine That! A world where individual with disabilities are
empowered to shape their own lives through relationships with family,
friends, employers and other community citizens.
