We receive each client's situation with understanding, respect and empathy. We value accessibility to services for every person who needs them.
We utilize all available resources, both within our agency and in the community. We value our relationships with all community members, understanding that a county-wide effort is essential to ending violence.
We acknowledge and support the difficult work done by our staff. We value the generous and unique contributions of our volunteers. We are accountable to our funders, donors and community partners.
To prevent sexual and domestic violence, provide services to those affected, and create community awareness for support and resources.
