Our Mission, Vision & Values
Dream it. Live it.
Founded by families in 1953, Noble’s services have evolved with the needs of the children and adults we serve. By focusing on our mission and taking the steps outlined in our Strategic Plan, we can achieve the powerful vision we have for a world in which each person can Dream it. Live it.™ every single day.
To expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families through individualized services.
A world in which children and adults of all abilities live out their dreams in a community that embraces their contributions and recognizes them as fully participating members of our society.
Our Core Values
Everything we do is shaped by our Core Values:
We believe that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability.
We believe that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society, and are equal before the law.
We believe that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.
We believe in self-determination and self-advocacy. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.
We believe that society in general, and Noble in particular, benefit from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, disability, marital status and veteran status.
