aHAND4 Life!'s STRATEGY, LEADERSHIP and APPROACH are based on "The 5 C's! ™" philosophy for successful semi-independent living and Happiness. Co-Founder Mr. Edward LeMahieu developed this method over years to manage his son Brett LeMahieu's (Co-Founder) entry, and success, in Adult "supported living", beginning in 2002. Brett achieved a steady state of happiness by 2007!  

In this, aHAND4 Life! defines with each Member & Client, the goals to INCREASE:
"CAPABILITY" - aH4L! assists to improve healthcare, mobility, access... - the 1st "C".
"CAREGIVING" - aH4L! puts the "C" in, with COMPASSION - the 2nd "C".
"COMPANIONSHIP" - aH4L!'s unique Animal, then People program - the 3rd "C".
"COMMUNITY" - aH4L!! tirelessly involves qualified Community members - the 4th "C".
