The work of POSE is guided by our mission in an effort to see our vision for communities realized. The work we do in order to achieve our mission is guided by our 6 core values.
We listen to and learn from our communities. Our goal is to identify the causes of community problems and connect individual or group needs to the appropriate resources.
We strive for equity and we focus primarily, but not exclusively, on people who are vulnerable, and/or have been marginalized.
We practice and champion inclusiveness in our communities. We honor diverse strengths, needs, voices, and backgrounds of all members of our communities.
We value the personal experiences and journeys of all in our communities. We believe working in unison to foster understanding and to create a partnership between all parties involved.
We believe in empowering community leaders to invigorate social and civic engagement.
We believe in the engagement of thought-provoking conversations about the positive and negative factors that impact individuals in our communities.
