common principles in our respective faiths.

Interfaith: We are enriched through the diversity of our volunteers and recipients’ beliefs. While our primary focus is providing services, our shared activities facilitate appreciation and understanding of differing faiths.
Volunteers: Volunteers are the heart of our forum; they help people from varying backgrounds and traditions work together.
Collaboration: Fostering community collaborations and partnerships in support of those we serve while taking care to remain focused on our core services. We will provide opportunities for the community at large to offer financial and in-kind support
and expertise to help fulfill our mission.
