VALUES

Social Justice Focused: Data Driven: Collaborative:
To truly break the cycle of poverty and trauma, Passage Home is committed to evaluating the systemic causes of each. All of Passage Home’s internal and external practices will operate with a Social Justice lens. The causes of poverty are complex. There are no easy answers. Passage Home is committed to implementation, evaluation, and modification of all anti-poverty efforts. Passage Home will remain a nimble organization that will use the most relevant and accessible information to inform their operations. Passage Home will embody a collaborative spirit. Staff members will work alongside their clients as they help overcome barriers to stable housing and income; staff members will work with each other for stronger solutions; the entire Passage Home team will share their resources, knowledge, and time to achieve our mission; and the organization will work with community partners to achieve collective and sustainable impact.
Outspoken: Trauma-Informed: Investors:
We promise to give our constituents a platform and a voice for subjects important to them. We promise to use our platform to encourage increased societal understanding of the complexities of poverty and elicit positive change. All Passage Home Staff and volunteers will assume that any individual (client, constituent, vendor, partner, etc.) we come in contact with is more likely than not to have a history of trauma. We will treat everyone with compassion and understanding and emphasize respect and appropriate response to the effects of trauma at all levels. Passage Home invests in the community, our staff, our constituents, and our clients. It is our firm belief that by investing in all aspects of our organizations, we will foster growth that will result in long term societal gain. We also invest in the social, emotional, and professional growth of our staff and volunteers and anticipate they will do the same for our clients.
