Our core values define our organizational culture by guiding how we operate and make decisions which impact the diverse community we serve.

Accountability: We take responsibility and ownership for our words, doing what we say we will do. 

Collaboration: We build and foster strong relationships with community partners, donors, volunteers, and advocates. Without them our work is not possible.

Compassion: We approach our work with empathy, understanding, and respect.

Continous Improvement: We seek excellence by striving to improve our processes to be more efficient, client-focused, relational, and simple.

Discipline: We do what is best, rather than what is easy or comfortable, to achieve our desired outcomes.

Integrity: We act with incorruptibility, moral character, and honesty.

Stewardship: We wisely and responsibly manage the resources entrusted to us through the generosity of others.
