Common Community Values
We believe that we are better together than we are apart.
We need each other. Our communities may look very different, but what we all have in common are these broad values that give us a reason for coming together. We call these our Common Community Values:
- Building Relationships – we believe that intentional connections that foster authenticity and understanding enhance the peaceful climate of our community.
- Establishing Partnerships – we believe that the strategic partnerships of individuals and organizations in collaboration towards a common interest make us more effective in our community.
- Inspiring Growth – we believe that experiencing a broader understanding of ourselves, the community, and our world enhances our potential.
- Encouraging Contribution – we believe that the strategic sharing of resources and the active participation of residents giving back to their community is the most effective way of addressing our practical and tangible needs.
Every collaborative partner business or organization within the Catalyst Network of Communities affirms these value statements. This is what makes us a values-based relational network.
