At Towards Better We Believe that:

Everyone can be involved in ordinary community life, that both individuals and communities have something to contribute, and that many communities are capable and willing to “step forward” to welcome each person’s gifts, talents, and contributions.

In order for people to live a good life, they need to take on roles in the community that are viewed positively and valued. This is especially true to those that are considered devalued by society. Valued roles are the everyday roles of ordinary life and are based on our individual interests, skills and gifts.

Everyone has the right to human dignity and full citizenship. And that people are empowered when they have a voice in the communities they belong to and to whom they matter. We are motivated to see that all people are appreciated for their uniqueness, included in their communities and respected as fellow humans.
