Our Values

Karis Disability Services’ (formerly Christian Horizons) values arise from our belief that every person is loved by God and created in His image. Because of this, we strive to honour God and value people in all we do and with all of our resources.

We promote communities where everybody belongs and each person’s gifts are celebrated. This includes people with and without disabilities, employees, families, volunteers, and partners. We value and respect diversity of race, disability, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, colour and all other grounds reflected in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and provincial human rights codes.
