We dare to believe in a brighter future.
We believe that the past does not have to dictate the future and that in every dark past there are hopeful indicators of bright futures.
We believe that hope-filled people build stronger futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.
We believe that we are called to dauntlessly advance hope wherever we find darkness and despair.
We believe that we are called to be facilitators, connectors, mediators, restorers, reconcilers, and helpers - but never designers or constructers - as displaced people are empowered with the tools to build their future.
We believe that hope-filled people are the best architects of their own future.
Our Core Values:
Hope We refuse to accept that broken things will always stay broken. We are ridiculously and outrageously optimistic that there are far, far better things ahead.
Courage We stubbornly deny fear. We will not run from danger, but run toward it if it means that we can bring hope to a hopeless world.
Audacity We are not deterred by what others deem as “impossible” or “unlikely.” We are confident that the biggest mountains can and will be moved.
Agency We believe that the most important seats at the table should be saved for those who have too often been silenced. Their voice, their needs, and their desires drive everything we do.
