Shura is an Arabic word which means "mutual consultation." This is the basis of our philosophy and motivation in the decision-making process, leading towards self-determination. The team approach (inclusive of the stakeholders, individual, family, Service Coordination, Day Program representation, Shura staff and natural/community supports) is implemented to provide tailored supports that are designed to enhance the lives of the persons we support. Trained, supportive staff and administration help the individuals we serve to establish values, actualize goals, make healthy choices, and to move towards greater independence, living the life that they envision for themselves. The Shura Administration has adopted an “open-door policy,” striving to be readily available to assist with staff and individual needs. The administration is regularly involved in supporting the day to day services of persons receiving support. We truly believe that “TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.”
To provide participants with high-quality services based on mutual consultation with all stakeholders; guidance; determination; and innovation (using available technology) with consideration for individuals' challenges and needs.
