We know that beyond the next hill is a river and beyond the river another hill.  Yet we will march undaunted until we reach those who need us.

Service

We serve without expectation of personal gain, recognition or reward.

Tenacity

We bring order to chaos with a fierce blend of determination, flexibility and grit.

Respect

We act with every possible kindness and humanity, and no matter what, hold ourselves to a higher standard. Be respectful : Be respected.
