Mission, Vision and Values


A community where everyone's basic needs are met, including dignified and affordable housing, an abundance of healthy food, and meaningful social connection.


To confront the causes and respond to the effects of poverty in our community.



Mutual Respect
We all have equal value and are worthy of honor, dignity, and security. Respect for one another is both a right and a responsibility.

Social Justice
We advocate within political, economic, and social systems to promote justice as to the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges in society 

Community Power
Everyone benefits when those experiencing the problem lead us toward solutions

People have a right to make choices about how to live their lives and work toward their goals

We are authentic, ethical, and transparent
