Our Mission

Our Mission:

CARITAS helps our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycles of addiction and homelessness to reclaim their dignity.

Our Purpose:

To provide effective, permanent solutions to individuals and families dealing with the crisis of homelessness and/or addiction in the Metro Richmond area.

Our Values:

Innovation: Mobilizes us to push for solutions that inspire, engage, and energize others while moving goals, people, processes and our mission forward. Innovation creates and fosters an environment where resourcefulness, risk-taking, thoughtful creativity and continual self-reflection fuse to form powerful and transforming results.

Integrity: Calls us to hold ourselves to the highest standards as a model to our clients, peers and community. We are committed to keeping our word in all things and never compromising our values, doing all things for the benefit of our clients, partners and mission.

Passion: Empowers us with a belief in our mission and the energy, enthusiasm and perseverance to carry it out. Passion commits us to sacrifice, to be dedicated and to strive for excellence in everything we do.

Honor: Compels us to interact with and affirm all people with the highest degree of respect. We place immeasurable value on the unique gifts of each human being and the contribution that he or she can make in the world.

Servant Leadership: Leads us to put service before self in all our interactions with each other and with the community that we serve. It fosters shared success and is preferable to individual gain.

Achievement: Commits us to an unwavering desire to produce extraordinary outcomes. We will clearly measure the results of our work and use them to achieve goals that support our mission and positively impact the community.
