Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

In fulfilling our mission to Lift People Up and Build Brighter Futures, CAPTAIN Community Human Services seeks to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. We strive to recruit board members, staff and volunteers that represent a diverse group of people, ideas and perspectives, and extend that principle to the vendors and other community partners with whom we work. Equity and inclusion are among our core beliefs. We seek to include service recipients in decision-making capacities, both in their own personal growth toward self-sufficiency and in our service delivery. At CAPTAIN CHS, it is our hope that all community members will feel welcome to participate in these efforts to strengthen our community.
