We want everyone to have stable and healthy home lives and be valuable members of their community. Our core values are the foundation of how we work with each other and those we serve. Community: We are an inclusive, welcoming and safe environment. Empowerment: We empower ourselves and others to be engaged citizens by encouraging honesty, exploration and self-awareness. Compassion: We respond to ourselves and others with conscious understanding and concern. Integrity: We always do what we say with awareness of how our words and actions impact the world.
