Pride in North Carolina

Mission Statement

Pride in North Carolina (PRIDE) is committed to developing and promoting high quality residential and community services that provide nurturing, caring environments for adults and youth with special needs.

This commitment is premised on the belief that all persons, regardless of the nature and extent of their disability, are capable of living, learning, and actively participating in their communities as productive and responsible citizens.

PRIDE furthermore strives to maintain the dignity and worth of individuals and their families by acknowledging and respecting their needs, providing them with a support system, and working with them as equal partners.

Within a spirit of collaboration and mutual respect, PRIDE emphasizes a partnership approach to service delivery, believing this is the most effective means of meeting the diverse treatment needs of the people we serve.

PRIDE strives to serve as an innovative service delivery model to other public and private community agencies by actively enacting these values within the larger community.
