ACHIEVING FULL PARTICIPATION IN SOCIETY OF PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.
Sunshine Resources of Door County (known as Sunshine House) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Sunshine House Inc. was started in Door County by a handful of parents in 1971. These parents wanted more for their children to experience and be a part of and with their determination Sunshine House Inc. evolved into the great organization it is today. We are still operating this non-for-profit organization 40 some years later with the same Mission – of achieving full participation in society of people with special needs.
Over the years, changes have been made to adjust to the growing needs of our clients. As we have grown in scope and size, many of our wonderful services have been masked behind what Sunshine House once was. And we are much more than what we were in 1971. In order to educate the community and provide the information needed to those that can benefit from opportunity through our services, we have decided to rebrand our company and will look forward to serving Door County into the future under the name Sunshine Resources of Door County. This speaks to who we are, a resource. We offer many opportunities for those with special needs in our community, and finding the right fit for the individual is important in their lives.
WITH CARE, COMPASSION,
WITH CARE, COMPASSION, PARTNERSHIP, INTEGRITY
Sunshine Resources of Door County enriches lives to nurture and inspire the human spirit. With Care, Compassion, Partnership, Integrity. It is a new mission, but the values are not new to our organization. Our goal is to provide "Best in Class" day service programming, prevocational employment, community employment and educational opportunities to build confidence and foster independence.
Families and clients are fully involved in the path chosen for success, ensuring our clients live their best life and reach their dreams and goals. Sunshine House will remain, but will associate with the service that we started with since the beginning. This will be our day services program that those wonderful parents in 1971 felt was important for their children and what we, to this day, have found to be important in those we continue to care for.
