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 2017. Our “HCH-er at Heart” best embodied them all.
“I believe that every life deserves a certain amount of dignity no matter the shell that carries it.”
“Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, 'This is the real me,' and when you have found that attitude, follow it.” – William James
“Hope means getting people to believe in something that is not visible but still attainable.”
“Justice is what love looks like in public.”
– Dr. Cornel West
“Every day, each of us battles a broken system. And every day, we’re given a new opportunity to find creative solutions to make that system work for our clients.”
“Practicing the balance between holding on and letting go is one of the most difficult yet rewarding challenges in life. When I help my clients balance their stress and isolation with relief and human connection, my job has purpose.”
“I had no idea my coworkers saw me as worthy of this award! I’m here because of the work that we do and the people I work with – the dignity, authenticity, hope, justice, passion and balance you each bring to our clients. I want to help make people’s lives better.
Together, we are part of that change.”
