Our Mission

As a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our primary mission is to provide supports, programs and services that enhance the quality of life and independence of people with disabilities. Through a range of individualized services we seek to promote abilities and achievements that contribute to self-respect, personal development, purposeful work, and meaningful participation in the community.

Our Vision

We envision helping to create a community where people can freely participate in all areas of community life regardless of their abilities. Our function will be to provide a broad framework of supports that relate to the personal goals developed with each individual. We will set a standard of excellence, that affirms the complex nature of each person and advocates a creative and compassionate approach at each level of achievement.

Amicus means friend

We are often asked how we pronounce our name

While both pronunciations ('uh-mee-kus' and 'am-uh-kus') are technically correct, we pronounce Amicus as 'uh-mee-kus' like in this YouTube video. We are happy to hear our name spoken either way amongst friends onsite and in the community!
