Our Name

Sisu (see-soo) : a Finnish concept that describes determination, tenacity of purpose, grit, bravery, resilience, and growth within adversity and is held by Finns themselves to express their national character. Here at Sisu Adult Growth we believe that every individual with a disability has the capacity to encompass Sisu. We encourage our clients to push themselves out of their comfort zone so that they can continue to grow and learn new skills and preferences.

Why the cactus? The cactus is a plant that can grow within the harshest conditions. Even though it may be extremely dry, insanely hot, or devastatingly cold, the cactus flourishes. We work on inspiring our clients to be like the cactus. Even when our environment is difficult to be in, we can all flourish and become the best versions of ourselves.
