We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims whose lives have been tragically lost. Our community, our country, our whole world, is suffering with feelings of frustration, sadness, anger and fear and a host of other feelings, and Samaritan Center shares that pain.
As our staff processes feelings around these tragic events, we re-commit to a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion in our own organization. We stand in support of our staff, our clients, and social justice, and we join our community in standing against racism, discrimination and oppression.
We are committed to caring for the whole community and seeking out vulnerable, at-risk and marginalized populations who do not have equal access to care and resources. We are grateful to funding partners who allow us to serve these families and continue our mission. We pledge to make our vision a reality: We envision a healthy and compassionate community where every individual achieves mental, physical, spiritual and social wellbeing.
We pledge to listen and learn and work with our community toward equity and inclusion. Join us. We are stronger together.
