Our mission is to serve underrepresented and marginalized minorities who have either apparent and/or non-apparent disabilities.
To create an inclusive and dynamic space of awareness, respect and appreciation for all forms of diversity wherein all share the responsibility of fostering and nurturing cultural competence in the service of promoting excellence and leadership of global citizens.
Our diverse services include online resources, community outreach, assessment, prevention, education, and therapeutic interventions. The services are offered with compassion, respect for others and appreciation of individual differences.
The Disability Guru recognizes that intersecting identities, internalized oppression and socio-political and historical factors adversely impact certain populations. Therefore, we are committed to the development of culturally diverse and competent associates who aim to respect and empower diverse individuals and groups. Furthermore, we take great pride in our efforts to promote social justice, provide corrective emotional experiences and decrease stigma.
Striving for true diversity and inclusivity is our ultimate goal. With our world and clients continually changing, our diversity mission and our services will continue to be progressive and open to change.
We believe in providing the highest quality services that facilitate client’s mental health stability and authentic development, based on empirically-supported principles and a commitment to continual professional and organizational improvement.
We believe that every person should be accorded fundamental respect and deserves services that are congruent with their worldview. Our staff is committed to developing the knowledge, awareness, and skills necessary to fulfill this value. We provide services that honor diversity and are inclusive and welcoming of everyone.
We believe in promoting social justice in our community by advocating for fairness and institutional responsiveness. We seek to change conditions that negatively impact equal access to services, resources and benefits.
We believe cultural competence is achieved through individual and collective accountability and responsibility as guided by ethical standards, professional development and self-assessment. This is where transparency is an essential aspect of effective communication.
