What we believe

All people are to be treated justly, accorded dignity and respect and are to have their basic rights protected.

Where there is division and conflict, we should work to heal brokenness and reconcile differences.

Each person has the capacity to make and to bear the responsibility for choices and decisions about their life.

Those who provide and those who use services share a common humanity, calling forth compassion for each other's distress and hope for each other's future. Working with people in need demands a spirit of humility, free from blaming or judging.

Every person has the potential to live life abundantly.
