Seek and use input from stakeholders, including consumers, family members, staff, referral/funding sources, and the community in decision making, strategic planning, quality improvement, and to enhance satisfaction.

Respect – Respect the rights and dignity of others. Accept people for who they are, not who we think they should be.

We are accountable for creating and maintaining credibility and trust with internal and external stakeholders. We shall deal fairly, ethically, and honestly with consumers, board members, staff, volunteers, interns, funding sources, family members, community partners, referral sources, contractors, suppliers, and consultants. To maximize resources for those we serve, we shall routinely cooperate and collaborate with professionals, colleagues, and community partners.

Special thanks to Congressman Jeff Van Drew and staff for taking time from their hectic schedules to visit CODI. The group toured our facility and spent time listening to consumer and staff concerns regarding employment opportunities for differently abled individuals. The top concern discussed was proposed federal legislation to abolish 14(C) certificates and sub-minimum wages, which was introduced in the Transformation to Competitive Employment Act.   
Thanks to Jacob Caplan, Director of Advocacy and Government Affairs, from ACCSESNJ, for arranging this important meeting and discussion. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss the significance of our work and its impact on the lives of those we serve throughout our community.
