Life Long Learning
It is imperative that our team encourages learning opportunities for those we serve and one another. The most successful employees are those that seek opportunities to grow and develop.
We value the contributions of others and strive to positively contribute to the organization’s goals by being an effective member of committees, departments and programs. We also foster cooperation in all circumstances.
True gratitude requires the ability to appreciate others and the work that is before us. We each must display a thankful heart and come to work with a consistently positive attitude.
Compassion is more than just what is in your heart. We must demonstrate care and respect through words and actions and show empathy for others.
Service Above Self
Our organization is all about providing the best level of service we can. This includes providing person-centered service that creates a meaningful impact on those we serve and others. We also must be willing to put the needs of those we serve and others ahead of our own.
We recognize the complexity of supporting a person’s life in its entirety. We seek to nurture all facets of human life, including mind, body and spirit.
