United 4 Children’s Core Values:
Community: They put the needs and desires of children, families and caregivers at the center of their work. They believe that every child needs and deserves a village of committed, attentive and loving adults.
Trust: They strive to readily meet community needs. They build relationships through aligning shared values, creating equitable partnerships and following through on their commitments.
Equity: They seek to understand the disparities facing children, families and childcare providers. They ensure everyone has access to the resources needed to thrive. They strive for a future where childhood outcomes can’t be predicted by race or zip code.
Empathy: They strive to understand the unique experiences of every person they encounter. They respect each person’s journey and seek to support everyone’s specific needs.
