Our Philosophy

As we all navigate through our daily lives, challenges, disappointments, health crises, physical injuries and emotional stresses find their way into our realities. Often supports that could assist us through these events and situations are not easily found nor readily available to us. It is the philosophy of Fairmount Associates that emotional supports should be readily available, easily accessible and financially reasonable for everyone.
