Our VisionTo make a difference in our community by impacting positively on the lives of youth and families we serve.
Our Core Values
*In the instrinsic value of all human beings.
*That all human beings have the ability to make changes for as long as they are alive.
*That we are all responsible for our decisions, and therefore our behavior.
*That action speaks louder than words; therefore, we will role model the behaviors we expect.
*That before a behavior is expected, we must first make sure it has been taught.
*That we can find something worthwhile in every person and situation.
*That to be involved in someone's growth is a noble calling requiring mutual respect in all interactions.
*That how and what we think determines what we do, and that changing thinking can change behavior.
*That people are more important than things.
