The stated values of The Center for Children and Families are Community, Respect, Integrity, Service, Teamwork, Empowerment, and Excellence. These values have been identified over time as the key factors in the long term success of the Center and are not high-minded theory saved for discussions at staff meetings and retreats. We believe that these values are present in every employee of the Center and are the foundation for our philosophy, culture, and practices.
We are committed to a positive environment in which everyone may experience a sense of belonging and worth. We honor relationships and take responsibility for fostering trust, respect, and good will. We share stories about our heritage, calling, and vulnerabilities. We desire to make a difference in the lives of others while making a living.
We choose to serve first, embracing our roles as servant leaders in our organization and our community. Service is a force that motivates every member of our organization. We are committed to serving those we lead as well as those we follow. In the spirit of service, we freely give of our time, energy, and resources.
