Our Core Values:

Service: To serve our Partner Families, each other, and every variety of “volunteer” assisting us in ways that demonstrate God’s love in action.  Service is our first concern.

Safety: To always provide for the ultimate safety and well-being of the families we serve, as well as all who assist in us in serving them.  This is our first obligation of service.

Community: To encourage and support a spirit of community and team work within and beyond our ranks, knowing that we are many members of one serving body.  This is our foundation of service.

Collaboration: To pro-actively ally ourselves with others who help advance our mission and advocate for the reduction of substandard housing.  This increases our capacity of service.

Diversity: To operate in ways that respect individual differences and bring out the best in each other’s gifts, talents, brilliance, and creativity.  This enlarges our capacity for service.

Higher Expectations: To employ the power of belief and high expectations to increase the likelihood of successful outcomes for our families, our partners, and ourselves.  This amplifies our potential for serving.

Stewardship: To be responsible stewards of all our resources and assets, tangible and intangible, including our good name, acting with complete honesty and integrity at all times.  Nothing less will do for service that works to demonstrate God’s love in action.

Competence: To serve effectively and credibly based on competence in all areas of operation marked by a dedication to quality, professionalism, continuous learning, and continuous experimentation.  This is synonymous with service.
