In 1996, as a result of our dialogue with supported individuals and other stake holders, Threshold
embarked upon a Journey of Self-Examination, which ultimately led to the creation
of a new vision. The new vision embodied a major shift in organizational philosophy
and we began moving away from providing program driven services, to providing individualized,
person driven supports.
In conjunction with this organizational shift, Threshold affiliated with the Council
on Quality and Leadership, an organization providing leadership for organizations
pursuing greater accountability, responsiveness and quality performance. The Council's
approaches are based upon the establishment of quality measures, performance indicators,
and evaluation techniques which are person centered and identify each individual's
The Council on Quality and Leadership is also a nationally recognized accreditation
organization. Our mission, vision and values embody the Council's approaches and
philosophy's and are based upon the belief that knowledge about people is the foundation
for delivering quality services.
