What does it mean to believe? 


We believe that families must be supported and strengthened.  We believe seniors should be allowed to age in place with dignity.  We believe immigrants and refugees should be welcomed with love and compassion. We believe every person deserves a chance to grow in safety. We believe we all have a responsibility to care for our neighbor. We believe in developing young minds and encouraging compassion in our community.

We believe in strengthening families and reducing poverty.
