We prioritize Diversity, Equity &

are the experts in their own lives.
We believe deeply in trauma-informed

always uphold these principles.

Initiative: You like to work and be
active your whole shift. You find things to keep you busy that benefit the
clients and the program at all times. You make suggestions and pick up

Critical thinking/problem solving: You
should be able to encounter a problem, gather information, and formulate a
solution. You will be supported by your team, but your thoughts will be
valued!
Tenacity: Simply put, you get the job
done. You don't let barriers stop you and you problem solve to find
solutions.
Respect towards others: You are
constantly evaluating and assessing yourself for bias and contributing to
a Diversity & Inclusion work space.
