"A community that sees so clearly its own disadvantage or its own hardships also has a harder time seeing its potential: its ability to work together to change the community and change their lives "- Matthew Desmond
SWD Values: based on the theme of F.R.I.E.N.D
F: Family: Stability is created through families, whether at home, at work or in the community. No man is an island and establishing a family is critical to survival.
R: Redemption: Everyone deserves a second chance. Overcoming emotional and financial barriers means getting a fair shot at redemption and securing a rightful place in Kansas City society.
I: Integrity: Friendship requires a consistency in morals. There is no ‘on and off’ switch for Integrity; we do the right thing even when no one is looking.
E: Ego-less: Friendship cannot truly launch without a healthy dose of humility. A humble adult is modest, teachable and thoughtful in actions and words.
N: Nurturing: The behavior and traits of friendship require emotional and spiritual, attention.
D: Dedication: Friends follow through and are present through the ups and downs of life. Dedication is a Life Skill that can be taught.
