For Connecticut to be a state where every child who has experienced abuse and neglect is provided the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
Our mission is to recruit, train and support court-appointed volunteer advocates for abused and neglected children in Connecticut’s Superior Court of Juvenile Matters so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.
We seek opportunities, embrace challenges and accept changes that will improve our work supporting, protecting and advocating for abused and neglected children. We are willing and ready to adapt our thinking and practices to respond to and address changing conditions and needs.
We collaborate with one another, the State and National organizations, other local programs and other stakeholders to effectively and creatively fulfill our mission. We see others as current and potential allies who can or may support our work.
We are committed to honoring our commitments, adhering to the highest professional standards, and being accountable to our stakeholders and each other for our actions, successes and failures.
We respect and celebrate diversity in all its forms and strive to be inclusive and welcoming by fostering a trusting, open and inclusive environment and giving due respect to self and others.
We pursue excellence in everything that we do, putting our heart and mind into our work and continually striving to increase our individual and collective knowledge and skills so that we can provide the best possible services and assistance for the children we serve.
We believe that each of us has an integral responsibility and role in delivering excellent service to our clients, donors and stakeholders. We are committed to always acting with integrity, providing world class service, achieving excellence with each day and encounter, and being responsible to all of our stakeholders.
We operate from a common purpose, doing what is best for the organization, our stakeholders and the children we serve, taking individual and collective ownership of the organization and its success, always being faithful to our mission, values and beliefs.
