    1. Passion
    2. Accountability
    3. Teamwork

    As an employee owner, you can expect transparency, respect and appreciation. You’ll impact the place you work and map a career within Paragon Community Services or other ORP companies. With your passion and our breadth of services, your options are nearly limitless!
