The mission we have undertaken together at Unity Care is to provide an environment, which is responsive to the needs of each person within that environment. Each of us is working toward that goal. Not one of us can reach the goal alone. As adults, our tasks focus on understanding each other as individuals and working together for the benefit of each child and family in our care.
