My Sister’s Place Value Statements:
Demonstrate Professionalism, Integrity, and Excellence
We strive to maintain the highest expectations of ourselves and are accountable to each other – colleagues, survivors, community, and ourselves. Our ambitions are guided by our community, best practices, evaluation and feedback and are performed with high standards and integrity.
Support Wellness and Self-care
We believe in order to live fully and holistically, we must prioritize time for healing, wellness, and growth. Thriving through adversity, challenges, and change requires tools and strategies for coping and resiliency. We encourage self-awareness, self-advocacy, and life balance through dedication to self-care.

We seek to empower the survivors we serve to honor their experiences, prioritize their needs, and restore self-agency. We recognize that each person has unique experiences and requires an individualized approach that is informed by survivor strength, experience, and choice. It is accessible, comprehensive, and survivor-led.
Foster an Environment of Trust, Transparency and Respect
We value open communication, collaboration, and collegiality that nurtures a trustful and respectful environment. We celebrate our differences and strengths utilizing them to be a creative, supportive and solution-minded team and community.
Deliver Services Intentionally and Passionately
