As a human service organization, we are tasked to assist many of the most vulnerable and marginalized among Long Islanders. It is our mission. Our staff and clients represent the beautiful diversity that is Long Island.
Our commitment to inclusivity and anti-racism is reflected in the culture of our organization and through its policies, programs, and practices.
Let us be clear that we reject all forms of racism as dehumanizing and in direct opposition to our mission, vision, values, and goals.
Unrest throughout our country has forced us all to reconsider how we can best address the inequalities and injustices in our society and work toward lasting change. Undoubtedly, the response to such complex issues must be broad-reaching and multifaceted to have any impact at all.
