GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR OUR WORK
To guide the work we do together, the Board of Directors and staff of Our Saviour’s Community Services adopt a steadfast commitment to the following five principles:
In working together, we will value and recognize the unique knowledge, ability, and independence of each person. We are committed to treating all persons with fairness and impartiality. We desire to maintain credibility by matching actions with words.
Effective communication is key in facilitating good working relationships. We are committed to keeping lines of communication open, as we work in our respective roles to achieve the mission of the organization.
We believe that collectively we can arrive at the best solution to any situation, through a joint approach to problem solving. We seek an environment in which we are all open to change and can work together to explore options and develop mutually agreeable solutions.
As a direct-service organization that is dedicated to justice, we have a responsibility to support the many diverse cultures, perspectives, and abilities of all people. We value all forms of diversity as community and individual assets and ensure that we portray that diversity in our work and daily decision-making.
ETHICAL CODE OF CONDUCT
Honesty and integrity are the foundations of our work. As stewards of public and private resources and trust, together we will comply with applicable laws and act honestly and ethically.
