After 5 years, we felt it was time to revisit the words we use to describe who we are, what we do and why. The Board of Directors and the Executive Team spent the beginning of this year retooling the language we use to better reflect the work we have and are going to be doing in the future. The essence of who we are is very much the same, we've just grown a bit. Please take a look at our updated mission statement wording and our re-calibrated values and givens below or on our mission page. Here's to another 5 years!
