Mission, Vision, Values


Scott Key Center’s program mission is to foster a broad range of person-centered, integrated employment opportunities and community involvement for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Frederick County Maryland.


Scott Key Center will empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be included and valued as members of the community. We will foster community integration through employment, meaningful community activities, and public awareness. Each individual supported by Scott Key Center will have the opportunity to work within their range of abilities in order to function at their highest potential. The Scott Key Center will promote creativity in order to develop meaningful employment and integration within the community through enhanced training and educational opportunities, while supporting each individual to identify, plan, and achieve their own personal dreams.


Respect and Dignity
We respect the individuals we support, their caregivers, our staff, co-workers, and customers by treating them with dignity, listening to and accepting their ideas, valuing their opinions, accepting diversity, fostering self-worth, and allowing opportunities for individuals to take risks.

Scott Key Center staff will treat all individuals with respect, honesty, fairness, and authenticity.

Through training, experiences, and support in making informed decisions, every individual will achieve increased self-worth with each opportunity.

Staff will communicate and contribute their skills, knowledge, and expertise to fulfill the mission by collectively working together.
