Our beliefs
We Believe Campaign

We do this work because We Believe.

We Believe in the underlying values that have been here since the birth of Community Connections. Sometimes it's hard to hold onto those values when we're working so hard to help our clients, so we initiated the WE BELIEVE campaign.

Community Connections Believes:

  • Black Lives Matter
  • People and systems can change and grow
  • Relationships are important vehicles for growth
  • People have the right to ask for what they need
  • People deserve dignity and respect
  • Treatment should be delivered in the most efficient manor for as long as necessary
  • Our work matters and there is hope for the future

Quality, Innovation, Respect, Equity, Integrity

Community Connections was built on these core values. These values are our guiding principles and drive the services we provide on a daily basis to help people grow and recover.
