OUR GOALS

Our three main activities are education, providing financial stability and promoting healthy lives. In particular, we focus on education to support future generations.

Education

We aim to equip children – regardless of religion, race, disability, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background – with the skills and abilities to develop the attitudes needed to meet the challenges of life in the 21st century. To learn more about our programs and results explore the resources available under Education.

Financial stability

The key to successful, independent living is financial stability. Our aim is to enable individuals – especially young people – to make conscious and responsible financial decisions, to provide them help to improve all the qualities by which they can create and maintain their financial stability and independence.

Health

We believe that maintaining health is a very important task, which is why we emphasize the promotion of a healthy way of life. Therefore we launch health care programs and support existing initiatives. Read more

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

We aspire to involve every segment of the community in every aspect of our work.

We act in ways that respect the dignity, uniqueness, and intrinsic worth of every person—the community, the donors, our staff and families, boards, and volunteers.  We believe in a movement built from the rich diversity and gifts of all people in all systems.

We recognize that structural racism and ethnic discrimination are a part of our history, which has created disparities that exist in the past and persist into the present. These disparities appear in education and health outcomes, and access to basic services.

We unequivocally denounce all forms of racial and ethnic discrimination. They undermine the well-being and vitality of our community. 

We envision a community that respect the dignity, uniqueness, and intrinsic worth of every person — the community, the donors, our staff and families, boards, and volunteers.  We believe in a movement built from the rich diversity and gifts of all people in all systems. Through our impact activities, we can lift up communities and improve outcomes for groups that have been institutionally or systematically discriminated against due to their race or ethnicity. 

We work with resident, public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure all people have the resources, supports, opportunities, and networks they need to thrive.
