Our Core Values

We grow when we…

Belong.
We believe belonging is the intersection of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are committed to cultivating belonging in everything we do. We honor individuals’ differences and treat each other with respect to foster an environment of belonging.

Learn together.
We are driven to pursue programmatic and structural equity. To achieve this goal, we remain curious, invite participation from others, ask for input, and strive for continuous improvement.

Partner with the community.
We prioritize the lived experience and cultural knowledge of the community. Together we drive community change through engagement, education, and collaboration. Their insights contribute to our services, programs, and vision for the future. 

 Celebrate strengths and prioritize wellbeing.
We believe our individual strengths, experiences, perspectives, and knowledge are valuable. We recognize we are strongest when we prioritize wellness in the workplace and in our lives. When we care for ourselves and one another, we are better able to achieve our mission.

Recognize our work has impact.
Our impact depends on the combination of our individual work and our collective responsibility. We measure impact through data, our interactions with the community, and how we live out our values. This model of co-investment defines our success.
