Adults with disabilities are often left out of decisions that impact them directly,

However, at Achieve Services, we treat participants like the adults they are. We listen, we don’t dictate, patronize, or condescend.

Our goal is to help our participants lead meaningful and self-determined lives, whatever that means for them.

"Achieve understood and valued the work my daughter Kristina wanted to do. She has been employed at the Anoka County Government Center for over 20 years and wants to stay in her position until she retires. I trust Achieve to care about Kristina’s happiness and her ability to succeed in her employment."

Kathy Svanda,
Achieve Parent and Board Chair
