"Tamir is a proud and caring team of participants, families, volunteers and professionals dedicated to assisting people with developmental disabilities realize their potential in a supportive Jewish environment through opportunities for personal growth and community involvement."
We believe it is essential that our work reflect our commitment to:
-Creating a Jewish environment within Tamir which supports Jewish learning, individual spirituality and the values of Jewish life;
-Respecting, celebrating, promoting and responding to the uniqueness, potential and ability of each individual participating in Tamir's many programs
-Involving families as partners in the planning, delivery and evaluation of services to our participants;
-Helping individuals, families and volunteers to achieve their goals;
-Being accountable to the individuals and community we serve;
-Advocating with and on behalf of the community of individuals and families whom we serve and with whom we have common interests;
-Supporting a healthy work environment and life-long learning for our staff and volunteers.
We have a few men and women for whom it is really difficult to get their hair cut out in the community. We would like to find barbers and/or hairdressers that could come to their homes in Carlingwood neighborhood and provide this service. Tamir staff would be on hand to assist as needed.
