Sacred Heart Community Service
VISION, MISSION AND CORE BELIEFS
Our vision is a community united to ensure that every child and adult is free from poverty.
Sacred Heart’s vision statement describes the long-term aim of the organization and the north star to which all of our work is directed. The vision statement places equal emphasis on the building and uniting of community and on the freedom from poverty. Neither objective can truly be fulfilled without the other. Thus, Sacred Heart’s work emphasizes both engaging and strengthening our community and developing solutions to poverty.
Our mission is to build a community free from poverty by creating hope, opportunity, and action. We provide essential services, work together to improve our lives, advocate for justice, and inspire our community to love, serve, and share.
Our mission statement describes who we are, our fundamental purpose, and our role in our community. It expresses not only the specific ways in which we address the root causes and consequences of poverty, but an understanding that the way in which we go about doing so has a deep and lasting impact.
Hope is created when we share resources in a dignified, compassionate, and respectful way. Opportunity is created when we invest in the skills and nurture mutual support networks among individuals and groups. Action is manifested when we organize volunteers, leaders, and institutions to work together to act on both individual and societal levels in pursuit of a community free from poverty.
