WE CELEBRATE THE INHERENT POWER IN EVERY PERSON
Every individual has potential. By standing beside the people we serve, working to remove barriers to their success, and providing necessary resources to help them work towards sustainability, we restore human dignity.
WE WORK WITHOUT FEAR
We are fearless both in our decisionmaking and in the places and people we serve. We don’t hesitate.
WE KEEP IT SIMPLE
By keeping our vision simple, our mission will always remain clear and actionable.
WE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
Dignity is a human right. We treat the people we serve the same way we’d treat our own families.
WE GIVE AND WORK WITH JOY
The attitude with which we give and work is as important as the amount of time or money given. We approach it with reckless abandon.
WE FINISH THE JOB
We break cycles of poverty by defining and treating root causes with those we serve, whether that takes us 10 days or 10 years.
Board of Directors:
We’re governed by a Board of Directors of dedicated and visionary individuals who have committed countless volunteer hours to ensure our strategies and outcomes are sound and resources are utilized properly.
