Mission, Vision, and Values Statement

April 2, 2021

The purpose of a mission statement is to describe an organization’s purpose, support its vision, and communicate its purpose & direction to its community. It serves as a guide for creating policies, determining priorities, and organizational decision-making.

We have been working hard to redefine our mission, vision, and values to better reflect our strategy and goals. Let us know what you think!


Parkinson’s Nebraska is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Nebraskans living with Parkinson’s and their families.


A Nebraska where all people with Parkinson’s disease feel a sense of community and have access to the programs, services, and education they need to live well.


Integrity We believe in acting honestly, truthfully, and are committed to doing what is best for those we serve. Building trust builds a stronger community.

Accountability We believe in accountability to our donors, supporters, the community, and the people we serve through transparency and a commitment to our mission. We take ownership of our actions.

Respect We believe in respecting all members of our community by recognizing the value and worth of each person. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity.

Equity We believe in removing the barriers to equity through a commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusion in the way that we engage, learn, and serve our community. Together, our differences make us stronger.

Collaboration We believe in the power of working together to achieve our goals, combine resources, and better serve our community. We can accomplish more together than we can alone.

Three Pillars of Strong Parkinson’s Communities  

A strong Parkinson’s community is key to improving the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s and their families. Our strategy of mission achievement is built upon the Three Pillars of Strong Parkinson’s Communities:

  • Connections: We connect people with Parkinson’s to each other, to resources, and to their community.
  • Collaboration: We collaborate with communities to provide tools and resources to help them develop meaningful Parkinson’s programs.
  • Community Outreach: We increase awareness, education, and access to service through community outreach.
