Guiding Principles

Our guiding principles are built upon a biblical foundation and are embedded in every initiative we undertake and guide us as we seek to glorify and honor God in all that we do.

compassion.png

Compassion: We are compassionate towards those who are helpless, supportive of those in need and eager to empower those capable of developing their futures.  We believe improving the well-being of others restores dignity and creates economic growth thus breaking the bondage of poverty and dependency. (Matthew 25:40)

faith and perseverance.png

Faith & Perseverance: Our faith in God is the fuel that powers our motivations, decisions and actions. Our faith allows us to persevere without anxiety and fear because we trust God to be in control of all things. We are focused on the long term and committed to those we serve through all challenges until our vision is realized. (Matthew 6:25, 26)

community.png

Community: We are stronger together and we were created for fellowship. We prioritize the power of community and we create it wherever and with whomever we serve. We also understand that Haitians helping Haitians is the only way to true independence. (1 Peter 4:8-11)

integrity.png

Integrity: We acknowledge that our personal and professional conduct is a representation of our organization, and we are committed to transparency and to holding one another accountable to honesty, respect, and integrity.  God calls us to be good stewards, therefore, we are true to our beliefs and commitments regardless of the pressure of negative influences. (Matthew 25:14-30)

leadership.png

Leadership: We foster leadership in others and we lead by example instead of authority to demonstrate the values and behaviors we desire in others. Leaders are expected to create a culture of trust and ethical behavior through their ability to collaborate and empathize with others. We learn from our past experiences to identify our strengths, improve our weaknesses and cultivate growth in our staff and those we serve. (Mark 9:35)

autonoomy.png

Autonomy: We empower and equip those we serve for a sustainable and prosperous future because they hold the position, agency and influence to move their families, neighbors and communities toward independence, autonomy and self-sufficiency. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

humility and gratitude.png

Humility & Gratitude: We nurture an attitude of gratitude with humility, acknowledging that all we have, all we receive and all we accomplish are a blessing from God.  The impact made through our mission is a direct result of God’s work through others. (Matthew 9:35-38)
