Core Values

Our core values are the collective promise we at Health Care for the Homeless make each day to ourselves, each other and the people we serve. They guide our work and relationships. They hold fast when we shift direction or change. They undergird our culture. They ground us in what is good, right and true.

Each day we commit to:

Core Values, Practiced Daily

These core values were identified by Health Care for the Homeless staff, clients and community members. Each year staff members honor those peers who best embody the core values with a staff Core Values award. These six staff members best embodied our core values in 2019. Our “HCH-er at Heart” best embodied them all.

"A Small Needful Fact"
Is that Eric Garner worked
for some time for the Parks and Rec.
Horticultural Department, which means,
perhaps, that with his very large hands,
perhaps, in all likelihood,
he put gently into the earth
some plants which, most likely,
some of them, in all likelihood,
continue to grow, continue
to do what such plants do, like house
and feed small and necessary creatures,
like being pleasant to touch and smell,
like converting sunlight
into food, like making it easier
for us to breathe.
