Values

 Advocacy means being supportive of each other and clients. We cheer each other and clients on, even if we do not agree with decisions made. We defend each other through honesty, even if it puts us in a danger zone.  

Inclusion: means that we do not say no, we negotiate. We ensure that both parties leave the conversation feeling heard, whether it's staff or clients.

Perseverance: In the face of problems, we utilize our team for endurance and stamina, we actively pursue solutions because we are determined to ensure people feel included.

Unity is probably the value that brings all other values together. We expect our staff to be interconnected and inseparable. We do not stand for gossip, passive aggressive behavior, or individualism. With integrity, our staff will take the hard route and problem solve as a team, we seek to find solutions and believe everyone is good. 

Compassion is the value of actively pursuing and doing good. We expect kindness and taking a soft approach. This does not mean we do not challenge each other and our staff, but hard, solid approaches are such an easy route to take. It takes a compassionate person to negotiate.
