Welcome to EDCSPIN
EDCSPIN’s focus is providing individuals with developmental disabilities and/or mental retardation the opportunity to learn skills needed to reach their highest level of independence while insuring they experience the same privileges and opportunities enjoyed by all members of our society. Our philosophy is to provide individual services that address their specific needs within their own communities promoting a positive learning experience as classified by the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (www.omr.state.ny.us). Through this person-centered approach, EDCSPIN, encourages our program participants to strive to reach their potential within familiar environments.
In pursuing the mission of Enhancing the Quality of life for persons with Disabilities and their Families.
We pledge to conduct ourselves according to the following values:
“PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES FIRST”

If not, we will not do it.
The safety and well-being of those we serve can never be compromised.
We always welcome input from families, advocates and providers.
We will honor the trust of the families of those we serve and those who pay for our services.
We will conduct ourselves ethically and within the law at all times.
We will communicate honestly.
We will act with fairness at all times.
We appreciate the need to balance work and family life.
We respect individual differences.
We welcome open communication and promote inclusiveness.
We value teamwork and the need to have everyone paddling at the same time, in the same direction, toward the same goal.
We want our employees to grow so the reach of our good works can also grow.
We seek to recognize effort and achievement and to express gratitude for jobs done well.
We are accountable for the proper use of funds.
We are committed to transparent reporting that is so essential to healthy and trusting relationships.
We value each other and believe no one’s role is more important than another’s.
