People – We put the personal needs and goals of those we support first. We recognize the value and the potential of every employee. We listen and learn from those around us, especially those for whom we provide services. We know that everyone can make a difference and act accordingly, and recognize the dignity and unique rights of all of those whom we encounter.

Performance – We give the best we can at all times, demonstrating compassion and passion. We strive for excellence in all that we do. We are honest, ethical and accountable. We meet every challenge with professionalism and with heart. We meet change with innovation. We live up to our responsibilities and our commitment to those we serve.

Partnership– We work together as a team, to make a positive impact in the lives of the people we support and in our own. We are responsive and responsible to our partners – employees, the families and personal support systems of those who receive our services, other care agencies and our community.
