The Service Delivery Model

"To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity." Don Alden Adams

  • Visions implements a documented successful service delivery model, which is grounded in evidence-based and evidence-informed practices.  It is individualized-from Referral through Program Completion! 

Following an assessment, services are implemented with goals to:

  • Improve student achievement
  • Connect education to employment pathways
  • Increase parent/family communication and support
  • Provide essential Life Skills instruction
  • Enhance wrap-around support through mentoring, connection to needed community resources
  • Identify alternatives to activities that lead to crime

  • Since 2013, Visions has been self-funded, receiving no grants or financial assistance from any government agencies, corporations or other entities.

  • With the support of expert loyal team members, community support and valued partnerships, the high level of quality service delivery has continued, uninterrupted, since 2005-regardless of funding level!

Relief! I find relief in know that my son is in good hands.  Because Visions is there to help him grow into the man that God wants him to be.  Not the man that statistics say he will become. SM
