Transparency and accountability are hot buzzwords in today’s media. In general, transparency refers to “something that is easily seen by all.” From an operational perspective, this is a very high bar. For Sunrise, the principles of transparency are what lie at the core of our mission and allow us to best serve the people and families entrusted in our care. Six years ago, Sunrise made a pro-active decision to establish a Compliance Program and in doing so, we became one of the first organizations in the field of developmental disabilities to formally instate an integrity program.
The ChangingAging Blogstream is excited to welcome it’s newest member and Blogstream contributor, Sunrise Communities, Inc., a Miami-based nonprofit serving the needs of people with developmental disabilities from Florida to Connecticut. By embracing the use of social media and launching a new blog, Sunrise hopes to provide increased community engagement for self-advocates and activists and provide accurate, best-practice information on developmental and acquired disabilities.
