Our Guiding Principles

How we show up in our community is just as important as what we do. That's why we're so excited to have these newly formed Guiding Principles that will serve as both an outward-facing promise and an inward-facing set of standards for all board, staff, and volunteers. If you want to join our team, be sure that these are principles you can stand by:

Equity at the Center

Recognize and challenge the dominant culture narratives, norms, and power structures that prevent all people from belonging and thriving

Courageous Leadership

Live out our Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles with empathy and compassion, even when difficult or unpopular

Collective Wisdom

Ensure that our work is guided by community expertise, including the lived experience of people most impacted by poverty and injustice

Embracing Change

Continuously learn, innovate, and evolve to confront emerging challenges and opportunities

Accountability Driven

Earn community trust through dependability, transparency, and a commitment to achieving results
