People know what is essential and meaningful in their own lives.
Person-Centered Culture and Practices and Self-Determination empower people to actively direct their own days, goals, planning and services.
Person Centered Services champion personal preferences, interests and needs. With this approach, people are supported and encouraged to lead their planning process and make choices about what and with whom they would like to learn, do and be part of.

Beatriz Partida (Prefers Betty)
"My name is Beatriz Partida. I like to be called Betty for short. I like to speak up for myself, and also encourage others to speak up for themselves. I like working with my peers and listening to what they have to say, so we could all share our ideas on how to make our workspace a better place."
Luz Valerie Ortiz
"I am an advocate because I want to empower people in the disabilities community. I want them to know that they have rights and a voice. I want everyone to know that I understand and they are not alone and I will be the one to help speak up for them in time of need or help. What motivates me is the people around me. Knowing that when I wake up every morning I'm supported not only by my family but also by my friends and peers. Knowing that everyone knows I can do what I want to do with no limitations. I feel like I'm making a difference in peoples lives and giving people a voice so that they can thrive and believe in themselves."
"I am an advocate for the West Covina Easter Seals of Southern California . I wanted to be an advocate because I want to try to change the community’s outlook about special needs individuals."
