In his annual report to the Commissioner of the Department of Public Welfare, Dr. Vail described an emerging community philosophy, repeating the ideas expounded by Governor Youngdahl more than a decade earlier:

"All people are equal with equal human rights and dignity and local communities should be providing the services that people need."

He also said that while community care is preferable, it is not adequate on its own. Because all people are individuals, some will not fit into community facilities and additional options needed to be made available.

Human Rights for All
All people are equal, with equal human rights and dignity.
