Philosophy

Farm steads of New England, Inc. (FNE) provides services for individuals with varying abilities in a rural community, and believes:
 
  • Each person has innate value and should be treated with dignity and respect.

  • Each person has the right to determine for themselves the environments in which they live, work and play.

  • Each person is unique and will thrive in the environment best suited to their individual needs and with varying levels of supports.

  • Each person, with support, can develop self-reliance, independence and the social skills needed for working with others.

  • Each person has the right to have fun and to experience a sense of belonging, a feeling of accomplishment, and the ability to make choices.

 

Inherent in performing our service, we believe:

  • In transparency and open communication in all aspects of our services.

  • In treating our environment in a responsible and respectful manner.
