St.Amant is a comprehensive resource for Manitobans with developmental disabilities, and autism.
We are a not-for-profit organization that offers a wide range of programs and services to support individuals and their families.
St.Amant programs include a large residence for complex-care, more than 50 community sites and homes, the St.Amant Research Centre, the St.Amant School and River Road Child Care, a community child-care centre. We offer effective programs for children with autism and also for families who care for an individual with a developmental disability at home.
We strive to enhance the quality of life and self-determination for the thousands of individuals and families we serve each year. We are also a member of the Catholic Health Network.
St.Amant works from our mission and core values.
Freeing the spirit
Drawing on a tradition of compassion and service, we strive to create and maintain a community that promotes personal growth, health and safety. We believe that all individuals possess intrinsic worth and should be recognized for who they are created to be. Our values reflect this belief, and guide our actions and our relationships with individuals we support, families and co-workers.
COLLABORATION: We achieve most when we work in partnerships with others, whether individuals or agencies. We recognize the power of the group to achieve results beyond that possible by individual members working alone.
HOSPITALITY: We are concerned for the well being of others. We embrace our shared responsibility to provide welcoming and supportive environments and are attentive to individual needs for comfort, safety, security and privacy.
EXCELLENCE: We are innovative, accountable and continually improving. We support individuals as they wish to be supported, freely embracing change as we respond to the needs of individuals and communities.
RESPECT: We honour and support the individuality of each person recognizing that the human dimensions of body, mind, emotion, and spirit are inseparable and contribute to and constitute our well being. We welcome the diversity in thought, culture and tradition that individuals bring, believing it strengthens our collective whole.
