Our Guiding Values


Open communication with donors, partners, and those we serve is a cornerstone of our work. We’ve implemented regular communication to maintain that.


Sustainable programs come from sustainable institutions. It takes investment to build a nonprofit’s infrastructure. That’s why we’re asking core members to donate.


We’re driven by data to find innovative solutions to better the lives of those we serve. If it isn’t based on data, we’re not interested.
