Our Core Values
Empowerment is circular process of social change. It is an activation of abilities and resources in which people in need of empowerment work with an empowering person. This approach, over time, builds one’s power and ability to make choices and gain control of their trajectory. We do our work without creating dependency by implementing healthy boundaries.
Social Justice - We focus on equity seeking populations. We believe everyone is deserving and capable of achieving a better future. Everyone is entitled to respect. We foster physical, emotional, psychological, and cultural safety. We advocate for those who have fallen through the cracks.
Community creates abundance. It builds connection and decreases social isolation. It creates a sense of belonging. Supportive networks are found in community. We leverage community to provide warm hand offs and qualified referrals and to provide wrap around supports.
Compassion - We show up for our customers and make access to our services simple and barrier free. We focus on growing hope. We have deep belief in our customers.
