Belonging: We remember our roots as being a place of hope and sanctuary for queer and trans people, and we strive to center those who are most marginalized within our community to create a culture that welcomes us all.
Connection: We value our interconnectedness and interdependence through sharing our stories and practicing radical empathy. We communicate clearly and transparently.
Integrity: All of us at the Center—staff, volunteers, and board members alike, seek to be in an accountable and reciprocal relationship with the communities we serve and come from. We carry our distinct roles of service and stewardship of resources transparently and with great responsibility.
Respect: We value treating each person in a way that acknowledges their dignity, humanity, and wholeness.
Equity: We believe in a set of social justice practices rooted in a solid understanding and analysis of historical and present-day oppression, aiming toward a goal of fairness for all.
Service: We believe that everyone deserves access to economic stability, dignified housing, quality healthcare, resources, community, and opportunities for healing. We provide and connect the most marginalized to programs that help individuals and communities thrive.
