Core Values

Trust In God

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight.”  – Proverbs 3:5-6

Treat All Individuals With Dignity and Respect

All people are created in God’s image and are therefore worthy of being treated with great dignity and respect.

Honor Our Donors

Gratitude is best displayed in the way we honor donors and volunteers through the good and faithful stewardship of their time and gifts.

Model Christian Character

Christian character is best exemplified in the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Accept Personal Responsibility For Ourselves and Require It From Those We Serve

Personal responsibility is being accountable for personal choices and the effect they have on others.

Display Integrity and Accountability in All Things

Integrity is the mark of one’s character and is measured by honesty, commitment, and sincerity.

Strive for Excellence in Everything We Do

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…” – Colossians 3:23
