Provide uses these core values to ground, guide, and drive our work in partnership with health and social service providers to build a health system that, in a climate of diminishing access, is equipped to respond to women’s health care needs around abortion. These values are the cornerstone of our vision of a healthcare system that cares for the whole person, meets needs with dignity and respect, and where workers have the tools and support to offer the best care to those they serve.
We envision a healthcare system that cares for the whole person with dignity and respect, and where workers have the tools and support to offer the best care to their clients.
We honor people’s worth, including people whose beliefs and choices differ from our own, and we call on ourselves, on health and social service institutions, and on the people who make up these institutions to do the same through small and large acts that make a difference to those they serve.
Dignity & Respect
We believe that each aspect of a person and their life should be met with compassion and treated with dignity and respect.
We believe that our work must be responsive to the needs and realities of workplaces and workers, both at Provide, and among our program partners.
We believe in continuously recognizing, addressing, and working to change inequity.
We believe all institutions, including our own, must take responsibility for our actions and inactions, and how those decisions impact the people we serve.
We believe that all people should have the freedom and resources to make the decisions that are best for themselves and their communities, even if the best decision may still hold adverse consequences.
We believe that honoring each person’s worth includes recognizing people as continuous, whole human beings vs. isolating specific behaviors, needs, circumstances, characteristics, or moments in their life.
We believe in the power of people and relationships to make positive change, and that everyone has a role to play in creating a world that honors each person’s fundamental worth.
