Gentle Teaching is the philosophy the H.O.M.E Society embraces, this approach is not selective in its application and is at the core of all that we do. At the H.O.M.E Society we do not view those we support as broken and in need of repair, but rather as complete individuals with gifts and warmth and laughter to share. We create a culture of gentleness and unconditional love, a culture of relationships and reciprocal acceptance. We do not use the tools of behavior modification…restraint, time-out and consequences, but rather the genuine tools of gentleness….our words…our presence…our eyes…..our touch.
