Our Mission at YOU FIRST Supported Living is to provide individuals with developmental and physical disabilities the support and training that will enable them to live independently in their own home and to become and remain active participants in their communities.
YOU FIRST Supported Living is also committed to empowering individuals to make their own choices and experience life’s diverse possibilities.
Virnitta’s compassion and caring for individuals with disabilities began after becoming an advocate for her sister diagnosed with hydrocephalus and epilepsy, and who was receiving less then quality supportive living services from another agency. Though her advocacy for her sister, she learned that she would like to be become a home care and supported living provider of choice for individuals with disabilities, and provide services and supports that will truly put the client First.
Since 2005, Virnitta has provided foster care and support to individuals with physical and mental disabilities, and later founded You First Supported Living LLC in 2010 in order to enrich and empower other individuals with disabilities to make their own choices and live their life to the fullest.
Virnitta’s missions continues to be to pursue, protect and support the consumer’s individuality, independence and freedom of choice, and to promote human rights, increase opportunity and encourage active participation in the community for all people with disabilities regardless of their challenge, barrier or need.
