Vision : A vibrant community where people are healthy and connected.
Mission : We engage individuals, family and community partners in building and fostering well-being.
Values : We believe:
Families are experts in their situation, and we work in partnership with them to help achieve their goals. Families live in the context of community cultural traditions and mores; the primary responsibility for developing the well-being of children lies within the family.
Families are self-defining and include people who may be biologically related or not.
Formal and informal connections between people are the most important supports for all individuals (more important than any service we provide).
Assuring the well-being of individuals and families and the opportunity to contribute to building community is the foundation of a healthy society and requires universal access to support programs and services.
Building on strengths is the most respectful, enduring, and effective way to engage and support people.
Outcomes drive us to ensure that our programs and services are focused on quality, hold us accountable for what we do, and create a culture of learning for quality improvement.
