Inspired by Christ's call to serve, our mission is to provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice and to call upon others to do the same.
Our vision is to improve the lives of those we serve, to empower the most vulnerable, and to help reduce poverty through quality, compassionate, and effective human services.

- Call to Family, Community and Participation - We realize our dignity and rights in relationship with others.
- Rights and Responsibilities - People have a fundamental right to life, food, shelter, health care, education and employment; they also have the responsibilities to respect the rights of others and work for the common good.
- Preferential Option for the Poor and Vulnerable - The moral test of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable members, including in the arena of public policy.
- The Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers - People have the right to decent and productive work and fair wages.
- Solidarity and Collaboration - We are one human family and are called to work globally for justice, both individually and in the context of parish and community.

As a non-profit, we have an ethical obligation to our constituents and the public to conduct our activities with accountability and transparency. We wish to regularly and openly convey information to the public about our mission, activities, accomplishments and decision-making processes. Because we want this information to be easily accessible to the public with external visibility, we have posted here important documentation regarding our agency's functions.
