Service Delivery Values

At Latham Centers, four service delivery values help guide us in our interactions and communication among staff, residents, and Latham families. Those values are belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity.

Our Values

Each month, the staff, students, and adult residents focus on one of the four pillars of our Value Circle. Students and residents may celebrate belonging by collaborating on a group project. Mastery may be celebrated when individuals reach out to others on that same project, and help them in an area that needs improvement. Independence is celebrated as residents learn to voice concerns and learn from mistakes. And generosity is experienced every day at Latham Centers, as the staff and residents’ approach to teaching and learning results in a one-of-a-kind harmony.
