Our approach is that the lives of all our residents are precious. Over and above accommodation, food, clothing and medication, they also need all the other things required for a meaningful life – such as acknowledgement, human dignity and hope. We cannot follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Hence, individual attention and a client-centered approach are key. This requires a team effort from everyone involved – including the staff members, parents, volunteers and the business sector.
For each person in our care to come into his or her own, we have to comply with the highest standards in the performance of our duty. These standards are underpinned by our values, vision and mission, and also apply to our financial management, including compliance with all the relevant legislation and regulations. Horizon House is a non-profit institution responsible for its own funding. This calls for financial accountability, sustainable funding and liaison with all stakeholder groups.
