Our Mission

At Corporation of Guardianship (CoG), we believe that the work we do is important and that the spirit in which we carry out our services affects more than just those individuals we serve. We are committed to ensuring that our practices reflect the core person-centered values of individuality, independence, privacy, partnership, choice, dignity, respect, and rights. Whether providing services for individuals and families or in the development of our own organization, we actively promote an approach that respects and values the personal worth and unique strengths of every individual. These core values serve as CoG’s foundation and represent what we believe in, what we stand for, and how we approach everything we do.
