Best in PASS Award

Location : Sierra Vista

For the second year in a row, Silverado Sierra Vista received the most coveted award, Best in PASS Award, in the recently concluded Annual Silverado Leadership Conference in Carlsbad CA.

PASS stands for Program Analysis of Service Systems developed by Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger and Dr. Susan Thomas from Syracuse University and based on Dr. Wolfensberger’s Normalization Theory. Dr. Wolfensberger's theory believes that people with disabilities should be offered the same conditions as other citizens - in housing, employment, exercise, recreation, and freedom of choice. This includes “the dignity of risk,” rather than an emphasis on “protection,” and seeing people with disabilities, dementia included, as able contributors of society rather than treating them like children or marginalized members of society. 

Sierra Vista garnered the highest score of 4.7 with 5 as the highest possible score in the PASS Annual Evaluation.  Great job, Sierra Vista!
