What’s Important to You?

Are there ideas, or character traits, that you hold close? Can you identify those things that clearly define how you approach life?

At WACAP, we have spent recent weeks doing just that — defining these concepts for our organization. Our values. These are statements that describe how we implement our mission. If we are to pursue a world where every child has a family; if we are to work toward that end by championing children, finding and preparing permanent families and offering lifelong support after adoption, it’s important to know how we wish to carry out that mission.

For us, our values are not unlike a river and the current that moves it forward. These concepts are simply who we are. Even further, those ideas that naturally define and propel us can have a significant impact. Below are those things that, for WACAP, describe who we are and how we approach our mission:

  • We believe in the power of family to transform lives.
  • We are passionate about finding families for children.
  • We are proud of the work we do, achieving excellence every day.
  • We act with integrity, among ourselves and those who stand with us for children.

We aspire to…

  • Do more, through innovative methods.
  • Develop leaders who will dream, inspire and accomplish great things in the world of adoption.
  • Recognize great work when we see it.
  • Enjoy our work, as we balance the demands of our professional and personal lives.
