  • Compassion: We meet people where they are with non-judgmental compassion.
  • Dignity: We respect the dignity of all people.
  • Community: We strive to create a more welcoming and just community by journeying alongside people who have been forgotten or excluded.
  • Integrity: We work with integrity by aligning our values and actions, and being transparent and accountable to one another and our community.
  • Solidarity: We take a stand on the side of people experiencing homelessness and work for justice by fostering personal and systemic transformation.
