Mattingly Edge supports people to invest their time in meaningful ways that help them identify and develop strategies to achieve their goals in life.
We support people to spend their time, not in day services or specialized programs, but instead working, volunteering, attending school, exercising, socializing, performing personal and household tasks, and investing in other responsible engagements. We support people to spend evenings and weekends in their home and community, hosting friends, attending a book club or art class or yoga session, participating in a community of faith, going to the local nightspot for a beer, and other ways to enjoy oneself, meet people, and grow as a person. We refer to these things as “the good things in life.”
In order to help people attain the good things in life, we provide customized one-on-one supports, built from the ground up with the individual's specific goals and support needs in mind. A team of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) is recruited and matched with an individual based on personality, skills, interests, and logistics. The person being supported is always an active participant in the interviewing, hiring, and direction of their support team.
Mattingly Edge helps people discover and express their gifts and capacities, and to pursue employment opportunities that allow them to contribute to their community and be valued for what they offer.
Mattingly Edge advocates for people to live in a home of their own.
Mattingly Edge helps people cultivate mutually beneficial relationships and connections that lead to a richer community for everyone.
