Mission & Vision

 

Who we are

We are here as a support to individuals needing assistance for a variety of reasons, and we try to provide information and assistance regardless of whether or not we provide a program.  Information, a phone number, a pamphlet, a contact name, or more details, we go above and beyond to assist someone regardless of the inquiry.

We help our community through the wide variety of networks, partnerships, and community initiatives we participate on.  We give a perspective and voice to individuals who do not always have the opportunity to speak for themselves.

Our Mission Statement is simply,

We Help.

 

An organization’s Vision tells the community what we want to accomplish in the future.  It gives us a destination to move toward and a goal to achieve.

We want to ensure everyone has access to food and can get help when they need it.  We want to have everyone who is able to work and be employed.  And we want to live in a community where everyone feels they have the information they need and that they are linked to resources in our community in order to find it.

Very simply, our Vision is,

Everyone Fed

Everyone Working

Everyone Connected

 

Values guide the perspective of the organization. Organization Values need to be evident in all the agency does.  From program planning, to personal performance appraisals, to day to day interactions, agency values become the norm of our relationships and will define how we interact.

These are our Values. This is who we are and this is what we stand for.
