Meeting People Where They Are
We utilize a strengths-based approach when working with children, parents, providers, and staff.
We recognize that all individuals have unique needs and we design individualized programs/trainings
to meet those needs.
We recruit in the community – going to where the people are rather than expecting them to come to us.
Addressing Root Causes of Inequities
We acknowledge the systemic inequities that our families, children, and staff face and work every day to remove barriers to access and opportunities to further their education and economic mobility.
We bring community resources to our families and staff.
We teach, support, and encourage our parents and staff to advocate for themselves and their families.
Providing Culturally Responsive Programming
We recognize and celebrate the cultural diversity of our participants and our staff.
We provide culturally responsive programming that is offered in the native language of participants.
We foster a diverse working environment that acknowledges and celebrates differences.
We ensure that our staff reflects the cultural, linguistic, and lived experiences of the families, children, and providers we serve.
