To empower individuals with disabilities and/or mental illness to achieve their dreams.
NorthPointe Resources has served individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and/or mental illness since 1953. Annually, approximately 500 individuals participate in NorthPointe’s award-winning programs that stress community involvement through employment, residency, and leisure activities.
More than 60 years ago, Wayne Pollard — on behalf of his daughter Carolyn — asked the question, “What quality of life choices exist for an individual with a disability?” He discovered there were few or no options. Institutional care, warehousing over 5,000 people per facility, was the only alternative available.
Wayne chose to keep his daughter at home and worked tirelessly to promote quality of life for people with disabilities.
We are committed to creating and sustaining a Culture of Excellence. We believe that expectations should be exceeded, not just met. Our dedication to superior service applies to every level, every department, and every person in the organization. It applies to internal and external services, and every encounter every person has with NorthPointe—only excellent or better is acceptable.
