Who We Are
For years, people living with disabilities have been told what to do, where to go, what to eat, and how to spend their time. Daily and major life decisions were made for them, not with them. They were far too often being talked at, rather than being listened to. At Monarch, our goal is to change all of that. Because we know that people with disabilities have real hopes and dreams - just like anyone else. And just like anyone else, they deserve to know what it feels like to pursue and achieve them.
We work with individuals and their families to help their dreams take flight. We listen. We encourage. We empower. We believe in the people we support, even when they don’t believe in themselves. We make their dreams our own, whether it’s buying a home, going to school, or bowling a 150. With a little help, we know anything is possible. At Monarch, we do whatever it takes to help people living with disabilities achieve their dreams. Because that’s our dream – and it’s our mission!
“One of my favorite sayings - “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” – is how we do things. At Monarch, dreams become goals, a plan is put into action, and milestones are reached through the dedication and determination of the people we support, their families, and our staff.”
– Jim Kelley, Chief Operations Officer at Monarch
Our mission, goals, and objectives were created by the very people we support and their families. Every person served, every family member, and every Monarch employee has the opportunity to be involved in many aspects of the planning and structure of the organization. We welcome their ideas, applaud their determination, and thank them for the passionate work they perform in helping dreams take flight.
The Dream Revolution
“Helping Dreams Take Flight.” That’s our tag line, and it fits. Because that’s just what we do for the people we support, every single day. Sometimes in grand fashion, like the person who’s able to live outside a hospital for the first time in 15 years, and sometimes in subtler ways, when we simply get a person to agree to come to their next appointment.
We are an agency with a clear set of values, an experienced and talented staff, and a willingness to partner with individuals, families, and our community to help dreams take flight. We are at the forefront of a Dream Revolution: a never-ending movement designed to provide help to those people who need it the most, and ultimately help their dreams come true. Join us.
