Our Mission

It is the mission of IGHL, in concert with government, community leaders and the families of those we serve, to develop and implement innovative programs, services and supports for people with intellectual disabilities, so that they can realize their full potential, and become contributing members of their community.

To that end, using IGHL’s influence and position as a leader in our field, we will continue to seek progressive legislation and sufficient funding in order to provide the highest quality of care, and to insure that our constituents and their families have access to the resources they need.
