Nachum welcomed Tzally Seewald, COO of Makor Disability Services to this morning’s JM in the AM for a Makor update and preview of the on the 3rd annual Makor Run/Walk.
From Makor’s website: “Makor Disability Services is a professional organization committed to the philosophy that every person, regardless of his/her level of ability, must be treated with the utmost dignity and respect accorded all human beings. It is our belief that every person with intellectual and developmental disabilities should be afforded the opportunity to maximize his/her functional, social and intellectual potential. This is accomplished through appropriate individualized programming, by living in as normal a home environment as possible. In addition, each person should be living in an atmosphere of acceptance, warmth, understanding, and security which upholds the rights of each individual and provides developmental opportunities on both individual and group bases.
Makor Disability Services encourages and affirms the rights of persons with developmental disabilities and their families to secure the highest level of quality treatment and rehabilitation services. It is our belief that personal growth flows first from an improved sense of self worth, and that all programming must be formulated toward this goal of self actualization. All of Makor DS service environments continually encourage service participant choice and expression.”
