Family and Community Services has a set of core values that is the foundation and guide for our work with vulnerable and oppressed individuals and families.
Each individual is created in the image of God which underscores his/her dignity and self-worth and preserves the right to self-determination.
The family, as a social institution, is the most important human resource.
SERVICE TO ALL
Individuals and families are provided service without regard to socio-economic level, age, race, religion, gender, or disability.
Basic individual and family needs (food, shelter, clothing, financial, medical) are addressed as well as the strengthening of spiritual, emotional and social needs.
Individuals and families have the capacity to change themselves or their situation with the guidance of a tailored plan to meet their specific needs.
When helpful or necessary to adequately serve a family, outreach, including home visits, will be provided.
The problem-solving process may involve advocating for individuals and families to obtain necessary services.
The privacy of each individual and family is greatly respected, with staff adhering to strict rules of confidentiality.
