OUR CORE VALUES
Our core values direct our plans and actions, the most important of which is that we should treat other people as we would like to be treated if we were in their position. Therefore, MAP believes:
Our participants each have their own unique goals, strengths and needs. Our role is to support and guide each participant along their path towards increased independence.
Our work must serve our community. Although we primarily serve our program participants, we know that to be successful means to share resources, exchange knowledge of what works, align our goals with community goals and work together.
Our employees and volunteers are our most important asset. The connections built between our participants and staff are essential to the work we do. Therefore, we must support them, train them and guide them, and provide them with a work environment and compensation that makes their effort rewarding and sustainable.
We must always be faithful stewards of the resources we receive from grants, donations, and fees for service.
OUR VISION FOR MAP IN THE COMMUNITY
We are recognized as a leading provider of housing and support services that Veterans and people with disabilities need in order to live fulfilling lives. We work collaboratively with other organizations to improve the quality and efficiency of our services, and to make sure they best reflect the needs of our community.
OUR VISION FOR OURSELVES
We provide consistently outstanding service to our program participants. We continuously identify new ways to help Veterans and people with disabilities improve their lives. We not only build the organization’s resources to fulfill our mission, but do so while increasing our presence in the communities we serve.
