The well being and progress of each individual in our program are our guiding priorities. The Emerge team is committed to listening empathetically to each individual, to devising customized care, and to serving an individual customer’s changing needs for life. And we never give up on a member of the Emerge family. We have never discharged a customer because we lost confidence in finding the right path for him or her.
The Emerge Way is all about respect, empathy and, yes, affection. At Emerge we honor a customer’s right to contribute to decisions about his or her life with us. We work hard to help each individual achieve a fulfilling life on his or her own terms. Many customers live independently or in small groups, some marrying and/or working productively for local employers, all with appropriate oversight by the Emerge team.
Emerge customers thrive under our approach, and repeatedly show how capable they are of remarkable growth. Our customers’ families, often dispirited and frustrated before eMerge came on the scene, are more often than not heartened and reenergized by the changes they see in their loved ones. This too is the Emerge Way.
