Following the loving example of Jesus, we,
The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence,
embrace persons with intellectual disabilities
with professional and compassionate care.
Rooted in the tradition of our Catholic faith, and
Guided by Guanellian values,
we maximize the potential of those we serve.
Through the quality of our services,
we promote individuality and belonging,
ensure respect and dignity, and
nourish spirituality and wellness,
all within the supportive love of family.
Our Guanellian Values
The core values that govern all of Catholic Social Services:
Compassion, Dignity, Charity, Justice, and Excellence,
are practiced and take on special significance
in the context of the values we have inherited from our patron,
St. Luigi Guanella:
TRUST IN DIVINE PROVIDENCE
God lovingly provides for the needs of all.
Our God-given dignity makes us a person of value and worth.
PREFER THE POOR
The marginalized and the vulnerable deserve our special care and concern.
All people are members of the one family of God.
IN ALL THINGS CHARITY
All we say, think, and do begins and ends with Love.
We are the Body of Christ called into communion with God and one another.
