Safe Kids, Strong Families and a Healthy Community
Unconditional Love – We believe every child and every youth has value to society.
Protection – We believe every child and every youth is entitled to nurturing protection and a chance to develop his or her full potential.

Accountability – We believe that we have a responsibility to be accountable to our supporters and donors, to our funding agencies, and to the children, youth and families we serve.

Compassion – We believe we have a responsibility to care for our clients, our community and our employees with respect and dignity.
