Key Values that Guide our Actions


What do we value most at Project Angel Heart? Our six key values guide us in everything we do, from chopping vegetables in the kitchen to talking on the phone with clients to raising money to support our program. We believe that by upholding these values in our work every day, we can accomplish our mission in the best, most effective way and make life better not just for our clients, but also for our community. We hope you’ll join us in committing to these values each time you volunteer!
