- Holism: We believe in bolstering the physical, mental, economic, and social health of individuals and communities, as well as those who serve them.
- Empowerment: We strive to help others help themselves, which leads to stronger individuals, organizations, and communities.
- Leadership: Leadership can take many forms, from leading others to leading oneself; therefore, we work to help organizations and communities to lead themselves effectively.
- Personhood: While we place great importance on communities, our focus on individuals is of equal importance. Therefore, both working as a team and encouraging a strong sense of personhood and individual expression is integral in our work.
