“If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, Pressed down, Shaken together to make room for more, And running over. Whatever measure you use in giving- Large or small-It will be used to measure what is given back to you.” Luke 6:38
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn
Come and See
Jesus said, `Come and see.’ They went and saw the place where Jesus was staying. The time was about four o’clock in the afternoon. They stayed with Jesus the rest of the day. John 1:39.
- SERVICE TO ALL We operate as a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental community – seeking to meet each person, whoever they are, as they are. We embrace difference and adapt an interpersonal stance that is open to the other, especially as it relates to the aspects of identity that matter most to them.
- RESPECT We honor all people and treat them with dignity. We are responsive, empathetic, and compassionate – taking the time to know each person and valuing their unique strengths and contributions.
- EDUCATE We believe that life is a learning journey and that knowledge is a tool of empowerment. We recognize that we are blessed to walk alongside others, serving as mentor, advocate, and guide, as they develop new understanding and skills that will take them wherever they want to go.
- EMPOWER We seek opportunities to support others so that they may accept any challenge set before them and make the decisions necessary to reach their fullest potential. We feed and sustain them while encouraging them to find strength and resolve within themselves.
