What we believe...

Laurel House, Inc. is guided in a very real way by a philosophy of care that was first articulated as Everyday Lives by then Governor of Pennsylvania Robert P.  Casey in 1991.   The Pennsylvania Department of Health's most recent Everyday Lives publication can be found here.    

Everyday Lives holds that all people possess the exact same right to live a full life as a valued and indispensable member of their community, which is to say:  Everyone, regardless of any perceived disability, has the right to live an everyday life.
