At Omelagah, Inc. our purpose is simple: We exist to help people with developmental disabilities, live in their home communities instead of institutional settings. This is “why” we do what we do!
Our collective work is part of the larger deinstitutionalization movement, the process of transitioning people out of large institutional settings, into smaller home like community-based programs. Everything we do in this company, is contributing towards keeping someone in the community and not in a locked institutional setting. Thus creating a better life. This work matters!
No matter your role in the company, HR, Maintenance, Payroll, or Direct Support Professional, everything you do is contributing to keeping someone’s loved one in the community. We are bringing people home and working to keep them home.
During challenging times we must go back and revisit our purpose. Why do we do this work? The answer must be bigger than a paycheck or bigger than the particular grievance of the day. We must renew our faith in our purpose and continue to press on. Remember why we decided to do this work in the first place. As we work every day to achieve our mission to deliver quality support services for adults with development disabilities with complex needs.
We are all on one team working towards one purpose. Why…because our purpose is bigger than us. In the end, we are simply a company of people helping people!
It takes a village!
Matthew A. Omelagah, CEO
