Heritage Family Services has built a model of care based on the OnePerson Paradigm.
What is the OnePerson Paradigm?
A traditional organizational chart is shaped like a pyramid and flows from the top down. In the traditional structure, the person being served is situated at the bottom of the chart. After years of leading an organization in this way, our experience caused us to question: "Is it possible that the people we serve at the bottom of the chart are receiving less valuable care when we use the traditional model?" And so we decided to build something new.
The OnePerson Paradigm is built on a philosophy that sees OnePerson in the centre of our attention, support and care. At Heritage Family Services, our model is built on that OnePerson, or person served. We hold them securely in the centre, with our service team members, program coordinators, support teams and administration radiating outwards. This ensures that the entire focus of our organization faces the centre, towards the OnePerson being served.
Heritage Family Services affirms the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and is specifically committed to, ‘keep Aboriginal families together where it is safe to do so and to keep children in culturally appropriate environments, regardless of where they reside’.
