Core values


We will observe, listen, and work to understand and assist the East Lansing community.


We will meet every person who walks through our doors right where they are, understanding that emotions born from trauma will be strong at times and can run the full range. We will listen to those feelings and will never be judgmental or dismissive.


We will honor our commitment to the East Lansing community by doing everything within our power to live up to their expectations and strive to always do the right thing.


We will embrace opportunities to learn and improve, as grieving and healing are processes that never follow a straight and predictable line.


Many organizations and individuals stepped up to help East Lansing in the wake of the tragic shooting. We are committed to collaborating with all parties to provide and connect comprehensive support to the community.
