MISSION, VISION & VALUES

 

MISSION
Our organization's mission is dedicated to developing programs to assist people from the community with physical, mental, financial and addictive challenges in becoming more productive members of society through direct assistance, referrals, advocacy and public awareness. Our goal is to meet an individual at their point of need and walk with them to a place of opportunity.

VISION
Our vision is to reach out with a hand up to build new beginnings for brighter tomorrows: one life at a time, one day at a time. The goal is to meet at individual at their point of need and walk with them to a place of opportunity. It is our belief that as individuals become more productive, they begin giving back to the community, have a sense of belonging in a family and take pride in the neighborhoods where they live. In implementing this process, what appears to be a burden upon society is transformed into an asset of development and growth; individually and communally.

VALUES
Individual Empowerment, Personal & Social Responsibility, Social & Peer Support, Education & Learning, Integrity, Empathy, Collaboration
