Our Core Values
Every organization whether private sector, public sector, or community based has a responsibility to articulate exactly what they stand for. For many reasons and because it affects so many people this is an essential piece of any organization. Some organizations call them mission statements, they are given to employees or members on day one and they help all members understand the values of the organization they belong to.
WFMHA has a long history in our community with an incredibly long list of people who have positively impacted the organizations culture through their tireless volunteering hours and commitment. Over the years these volunteers have always strived to do what is right for everyone involved, always keeping the children’s best interest as the guiding light in any decisions they made.
With that in mind, as we move forward as an organization we feel that it is critical for us to clearly identify what we, as an organization stand for. What is our purpose? Our mission statement? Our Values…..Our Core Values. After all everything starts with our core values. They are the foundation upon which everything is built.
We hope that this clarity will give our organization an identity that stakeholders can relate with, and want to be a part of. We also hope that those who make up our organization will take these core values and use them as guiding principles in everything that they do. We always lose our way every once in a while, and if we can keep these values front and center we believe they will guide us all back to what is truly most important……the future of our children.
There are so many people to thank over the years for what they have done to get us to this point. And I think it would be fair to say that every one of you never needed to be recognized for what you did, you simply did the right thing for our children. That is just a testament to the quality people we have here in North Bay.
That being said, moving forward as an organization we want to start recognizing those who truly live our associations core values, day in and day out.
In the spirit of this, the first recipient of our Core Values tip of the cap is MR. GIL PHARAND!
This gentlemen truly is the shining example of what our organization stands for. We can’t thank you enough Gil for what you have done, what you are doing, and what you will do going forward. THANK YOU!
So when you see Gil around town, please give him a tip of the cap. Let him know that what he does matters to you.
