Empowering parents and caregivers:
All parents and caregivers are entitled to opportunities for growth and development which benefit the whole family.

Fostering peer support:
Every individual is entitled to have opportunities to contribute and learn from one another.

Providing a respectful and inclusive culture:
Everyone is entitled to a caring environment characterized by honesty, acceptance, integrity, responsibility and co-operation.

Community collaboration:
Children and families are entitled to integrated services, effective communication and seamless transition between Our Place and other community organizations where together, we can better-serve their needs.

Advocating for families:
