Victim Response

Vision Statement
We envision a shelter system which provides empowerment based advocacy and services for survivors of gender violence to live a safe and autonomous life.

Mission Statement
Victim Response will serve as a catalyst of social change to transform our community and champion the human rights of survivors of gender violence and their dependents. This mission will be accomplished by our continued efforts to create, develop and support a comprehensive shelter system which promotes safety and independence.  Through the efforts of advocacy, education, leadership, and prevention, we will promote healthy relationships.

Values Statement and Core Values
As we grow and transform, we will deliver premier services by embracing these core values:
Support and empower individuals, families and communities;
Be progressive and innovative;
Strive for self sufficiency and independence;
Be responsive to community needs and create awareness;
Conduct ourselves in an ethical and transparent manner;
Create community and foster inclusion;
Be an architect of change;
Promote safety, creativity and community collaboration;
Create a safe haven; and,
Be vigilant, brave, and a defender of human rights.
