Our Core Values

At New Hope of Indiana, our core values express and guide us to remain focused on what is truly important to us as an organization. These values do not change. They apply to every person, every situation, and in every action we take. They are the underpinning of who we are and the culture we create, every day.


We believe in constant service to others, especially those who need it most.

We exemplify this on a daily basis by:


• reaching out to those in need without judgment or reservation

• speaking loudly for those who cannot speak for themselves

• empowering and encouraging others to improve their lives

• building relationships and collaborations for the common good


We practice respect and compassion for the dignity and diversity of life.

We show that we recognize each person has special value and unique gifts by:


• inviting and appreciating the uniqueness of people and their viewpoints

• celebrating the diversity of our associates and those we serve

• conscientiously caring for the sanctity of our environment

• supporting those most vulnerable and recognizing when others need help,

   be it those we serve or those working alongside us

• being respectful in all interactions with others


Our words and actions must be consistent with our values in a meaningful way in everything we do and say.
We show integrity by:


• inspiring trust through leading by example

• holding ourselves personally accountable to do what is right and ethical

• following our rules of personal conduct and expectations for business behavior

• maintaining high standards of excellence and performance

  • Equipping our leaders with the tools needed to nurture an inclusive culture for all
  • Advocating for social justice in ways that directly impact our associates and individuals we serve


Everyone within our organization is committed to the principles of performance that foster a service culture.
We achieve that by utilizing the wisdom gained from our combined experience and knowledge by:


• balancing options and decisions based on both mission, and business concerns

• reflecting an understanding of excellence and stewardship

• recognizing excellence and stewardship include organizational, personal and community resources

• continually striving to improve programs and services using all we’ve learned

• welcoming change with hope, courage, and curiosity

• exploring business and human issues in an imaginative and flexible way

Our workplace is a community of people who are committed to a common vision.

We further our goals and mission by:

  • depending on one another for affirmation and strength
  • offering unwavering hope and joy to both giver and receiver of the care we provide
