Our core values shape the way we work, by guiding organizational decisions and actions:
Diversity, Equity, Anti-Racism and Anti-Discrimination
Equity, Equality and Inclusion: We believe in the intrinsic dignity and value of every person. We strive for fairness and justice in the way people — our staff and our communities — are treated and the opportunities they have to succeed by addressing racism, inequitable treatment and other barriers to inclusion.
Innovation: We embrace new ways of thinking, planning and acting that improve the impact and effectiveness of our work. We continuously learn from experience, each other, our partners and the communities we serve.
Partnerships: We forge meaningful partnerships as the foundation of all of our work and use our positive influence to improve the lives of the children, families and communities we serve.
Stewardship: We are accountable and use our resources efficiently and effectively so that we may ensure Casey Family Programs will continue to improve the lives of children and families across the nation in perpetuity.
