A vibrant organization exudes energy and enthusiasm. It has a diverse culture, and its staff work together productively to further the mission, vision, and values as well as to build its potential. With this recognition, we at Child Advocates embrace the following:

Every function is integral to the success of Child Advocates. We are open to new ideas and approaches to serving children who have experienced abuse and neglect. While staff and volunteers may not always agree with every decision, we know we have the opportunity to be heard and to have our viewpoints considered. Healthy discussion and debate of issues is valued; personal comments and attacks are not tolerated. Civility is expected of all.
We believe that our staff and those served by the organization will enjoy a brighter future. Our commitment to the cause and the work of the organization fosters an environment of leadership, innovation and high quality programs.
