Our Values

We recognize and honor the innate dignity that every human has. We embrace people as they are, with unconditional positive regard. We bring kindness, respect and integrity to all of our interactions.

We recognize self-determination as a human right that plays a vital role in growth and recovery. Everyone is empowered to guide their own lives, and everyone has the responsibility to respect the needs of the community, and their role within it.

We know that diverse perspectives and lived experiences are integral to the strongest, healthiest organizations and communities. We strive to be an anti-racist organization. We will call out bias, demand change, and measure our impact, within and beyond our organization.

Best Self
We believe that each person brings unique strengths and abilities to the work we do. We create space for one another to show up authentically. We are committed to learning from experience and to empowering each other to become our best selves. We see the phenomenal circle of personal growth: health achieved in one person becomes, in turn, the strength to “pay it forward” and encourage others towards health.

We build community grounded in acceptance and inclusion, while challenging every one of us to develop. Each of us is responsible for creating a culture of welcome, safety and belonging, as we work together to build a community that helps people thrive. We know that any sustainable achievement is rooted in collaboration and meaningful partnership.

We commit to excellence in our work, in our roles as community members, and in the operation and management of Avalon Housing. We go above and beyond to accomplish our goals, make hard decisions when needed, and hold ourselves and others accountable for results. We are courageous advocates and leaders for intentional change, and we are willing to take thoughtful risks.

We value the role that good self care plays in overall well-being. Self care, and the pursuit of well-being—satisfaction with life, feeling connected, having a sense of purpose and agency —is key to engendering strong and deep connections. We know there are abundant opportunities for us to cultivate joy. We make time for good fun together to fuel ourselves and to build a warm, enjoyable community.
