They promote independence and growth in addition to creating an environment that fosters creativity and confidence. Natural supports help Families develop deep, meaningful relationships full of mutual respect, love, and laughter. These relationships allow Families to begin the process of moving away from reliance on social service agencies and toward reliance on self, friends, family, and the community. Mentorship promotes community and the building of natural supports.
