We are a partner and resource to the communities we serve, delivering healing, help, and hope.

We SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES in their choice to grow in faith and serve others.
We train, equip, and support them in a Christ-centered and professional environment.

We are GOOD STEWARDS of our donors’ gifts.
We honor God by making responsible business decisions and providing compassionate services.

We are RESPONSIVE to the needs of our changing world.
We use innovative, evidence-based methods and high standards of care to heal and help individuals.
