Our Values

  • Safety:
    Safety encompasses all aspects of our lives, including physical, emotional, psychological, electronic, and financial safety.
  • Trust:
    Trust is an important building block in healing from violence and abuse and in forming strong relationships.  We lay a foundation of trust through our actions guided by attention to: honesty, transparency, open communication, and creating safe accessible spaces.
  • Diversity/Equity/Inclusion:
    A commitment to challenge racial and economic injustice, and respect and protect basic human rights for people with disabilities and the D/deaf, D/deaf-Blind, and hard of hearing community.
  • Empowerment :
    We support people in taking control of their own lives: freedom to be creative; act boldly without fear of failure; and be a resource to others.
  • Interdependence:
    Staff, consumers, volunteers, board members, partners, and supporters all have unique and valued roles creating a network of strength and support.
