Our Values

  • Equitable Opportunity

    Every human life and perspective has value and purpose. We reach for bold outcomes and inclusive systems rooted in connection, integrity, healing, and accountability.

  • Authority of Experience

    Wisdom and authority comes through lived experience. We amplify the unique perspectives of clients, stakeholders, teams and community members as an invaluable source of insight.

  • Ownership

    Best results emerge when stakeholders own their projects, processes, roles, and growth. We expand opportunities for internal and external stakeholders to engage, participate, and speak truth about changes, relationships, resources, and spaces that matter most to them.

  • Earned Trust

    Quality relationships inform quality outcomes. We are responsive, steadfast, and honest so as to create safe spaces where individuals can be authentically seen, heard, and connected in meaningful ways.

  • Creativity

    Solutions-oriented, strength-based approaches drive innovation and transformation. We use a positive, out-of-the box mindset to find new ways to actualize purpose and fulfill mission.

"Members of our community, they were respected. They felt important. They were held. The goal of the project was to build on community care and make people feel seen and heard and valued. Jessie did that in every dimension"

Eileen McGaffery, Executive Director, Community Music School of Springfield and Co-Founder, Trust Transfer Project
