We value individual choice and believe in greater possibilities when choices are heard and respected. Our advocacy focuses on information and options to assist in the restoration of power for each individual.
We value our role as advocated for social justice for survivors of domestic violence and in the community, at-large. We believe in the thought that “Justice for All” is necessary to create “Justice for Everyone”
We value safety. We intend to create physical, emotional, social and moral safety within our organization and the communities we serve.
We value social change. HOPE is an organization of social change, as such; we recognize our roles as “agents of change”. To that end, HOPE engages in systems advocacy designed to change society’s behaviors, values, or social institutions that create oppression.
We value respect and diversity and envision an organization and society that is culturally competent. We will offer and expect respect for all stakeholders. We respect all individuals, value their contributions, and acknowledge that we are all important to the success of our mission and the HOPE Center as a whole.
We value integrity. Hope encourages an organization that demonstrates the highest ethical standards; honesty and fairness. We expect our actions to be consistent with our words and our words to be consistent with our intentions.
