Day Service Provider for young adults with Special Needs
Pinnacle House Charitable Trust, created to provide a day service within the Nelson area to individuals with very high special needs, who have left school and for whom full time employment is not an option. To provide a stable and dignified support for these individuals to attain 'good' lives, working to identify and maximise opportunities in all sectors of the community, and to encourage the removal of barriers that prevent highly challenged people from participating fully in society.
Pinnacle House is a faith based organisation that values all participants as unique. We will work to create an environment of dignity, trust and respect. We will be strength based, focusing on an individual's abilities and aspirations and support will be given to assist participants to achieve goals, being at all times welcoming, non-judgmental, encouraging and demonstrating optimistic expectation. We act to support Participants to make choices and we tailor programs to suit their expressed needs and aspirations in a safe and comfortable environment. We will work to break down barriers that would prevent community participation
