About Us

Values in Action

The four core values of dignity, service, excellence and justice are the guiding principles for all we do. Each of us is committed to these values and works to make them present in our relationship with each other and with those whom we are privileged to share.

Dignity

We respect each person as an inherently valuable member of the human community and as a unique expression of life.

Service

We bring together people who recognize that every interaction is a unique opportunity to serve one another, the community, and society.

Excellence

We foster personal and professional development, accountability, innovation, teamwork, and commitment to quality.

Justice

We advocate for systems and structures that are attuned to the needs of the vulnerable and disadvantaged and that promote a sense of community among all persons.

You can express your values by taking action!
