Person-Centered PlanningPerson-Centered Planning is used as a life planning model to enable individuals to increase their personal self-determination and improve their own independence. It is a method for anyone who is accessing supports to ensure they remain at the center of their decision making.
A business wanted to develop a Strategic Plan.
Centerpoint facilitated this organization through a process to develop vision and mission statements. We then worked with the business to establish goals and objectives. From there we worked together to develop a concrete action plan.
The business now has a strategic plan to work on over the next year. Goals and outcomes have been clearly identified and progress can be easily monitored.
Due to a high rate of staff turnover, the team of a non-profit agency was not working cohesively.
Centerpoint was asked to come and conduct Team Building exercises. The training focused on what is important to the team and how they want to support each other. The training allowed for ongoing team development and easily led into other relevant training, such as Person-Centered Thinking, Positive and Productive Meetings and Person-Centered Supervision.
The Team expressed newfound understanding of each other and noted that they were able to support each other as a Team in new ways. Conflict was reduced within the Team. Work production increased.
Person Centered Planning
One of the people that is supported under Housing First was about to lose their housing and the people who support them were unsure what to do next.
Centerpoint invited all people who support this person in any capacity, including family and friends to attend a Person Centered Plan.
Through the input and discussion of everyone involved, by having a structured way to work through a process and put the person first, a solution was found for this person to keep their housing. Action steps were developed in order to maintain the housing long term.

Our Person-Centered Approach
It is our role to help people create less complicated lives and still achieve the results for which they are striving. A Person-Centered Approach holds the value that we are ‘people’ first and is the foundation for assisting organizations in their strategic planning and individuals in their life planning.
A culture in which people have a voice that is respected.
To promote, to live and to support a person-centered culture that increases well being and quality of life.
We believe in a learning environment and the rich learning that comes from both positive and negative experiences.
We believe in enabling collaboration and partnerships.
We thrive on creativity and curiosity. We love to try new things.
We believe that people already unknowingly hold the answers which we can help them to discover.
We believe in providing people with options, not solutions.
