Mission
Perfect Sense was founded with giving back to its community core to its mission. Through ongoing, concrete actions, our mission aims at getting our employees off the sidelines to join hand-in-hand in bringing joy to the lives of others, while gaining a greater understanding of our community.
Over the last 10 years, ideas that originated with a group of Global Youth activists from the Special Olympics have been gathering momentum. What began as a vision of raising awareness about a single word (the R-word) and the negative impact it has on those with intellectual and development disabilities, has grown into a global campaign that now focuses on not just the eradication of that hateful word, but also on actions that promote inclusion for all.
Perfect Sense was founded with giving back to its community core to its mission. For more than a decade, we’ve set the standard for community involvement by engaging our employees in efforts to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. This past year was no exception, as evidenced by our ongoing actions to better the futures of our local youth, people with intellectual disabilities and wounded veterans.
