Motto: "We will support persons in their freedom and empowerment (including mutual respect in relationship and allowing for mistakes) to experience, learn from, understand, and believe in determining and managing our own lives."

Anson Bell's physical structure is a horse shoe design with a partially covered courtyard and a circular driveway with large windows and very nice landscaping.
