    Do no harm – Respect the dignity and humanity of all with who we associate. Withhold judgment; educate and work to prevent harm being done.

    Work until the job is done – “If a job is first begun, never leave it ‘til it’s done.” Work together as a team. Expect to be a participant in all activities and programs. Don’t leave a fellow staff member/volunteer working alone unless you ask if there’s anything you can do to help. Develop a work ethic that is not bound to traditional structured schedule.

    Protect Interfaith Community Outreach, Inc. and each other – Disagree and express opinions inside the organization, but speak with one voice to the community. Present a positive image; work to solve complaints and problems. Maintain a high level of professionalism. Remember and practice our mission: “Interfaith Community Outreach, Inc. promotes a safe and compassionate community.”

    Be kind – Go the extra mile to say thank you - especially to volunteers, co-workers and supporters. Look for the good in every person and every situation. Take the high road. Go the extra mile to defuse conflict.
