Humans of IHI

 

Meet the “Humans of IHI”…. our clients, their friends and families, and the members of the integrative communities that work together to create and maintain these bonds.

“IHI is committed to changing the perception of the collective, in order to bring about true and permanent change to break the cycles of poverty and stigmas.”

Maslow’s pyramid hierarchy of needs shows that our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. While every person is capable and has the desire to move up the hierarchy, progress cannot be made if a person cannot meet their lowest level needs. Life experiences, including poverty and unsafe living conditions, will thwart any progress, and those persons should not be expected to exhibit the same perception of everyday life, as those that have attained higher levels.
