Blue Sky Support Services Mission: Blue Sky Support Services enhances the quality of life for adults by providing community-based support services founded on integrity, dignity and respect.

Blue Sky Support Services is based on three basic principles: Choice, Community Integration and Skill Development. The people we serve vary greatly in their aspirations, experiences, and abilities.  In order to truly provide meaningful services, we must think creatively and be innovative in our approach to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.  Our vision at Blue Sky Support Services is to be a leader in providing creative and innovative services, to enhance individuals’ lives as well as our community. We are thoughtful in all we do.

Big Picture – Each human being has the ability to learn, change and grow. Blue Sky Support Services provides each individual with innovative services to assist them in identifying and reaching their personal goals and ambitions.
