At Room One, we use our values as a strategic tool. In every decision to build a program, cultivate a partnership, and support a client, we look to our fundamental values of accountability, allyship, agency, dignity, and equity for guidance.
Agency: Every person has inherent strengths and the ability to create powerful change in their lives and communities
Allyship: Our identities as individuals are complex. Our differences should bring us together, not divide us. Those with power should be allies of those placed in the margin.
Accountability: As community members, we are accountable for each other’s well-being. We are part of the solution, part of our strength, and part of every individual’s healing.
Dignity: Our work is measured by its ability to enhance the life and dignity of every member of our community. We respect our neighbor’s stories, values, and wisdom.
Equity: To ensure every person has the opportunity to live a long, healthy life, resources, rights and responsibilities must be equitably distributed and disadvantages and injustices addressed.
