Our vision and values


Our Vision

    Transitions’ vision is a community that supports healthy, violence-free family life

Our Values

  • Families are empowered to meet their highest goals and aspirations.

  • Our work demonstrates leadership in community collaboration, cooperation, teamwork and respect.

  • Clients are treated with the utmost courtesy, respect and compassion.

  • Our work is distinguished by an appreciation of differences among people.

  • Our dealings with families, staff and the community are marked by honesty, integrity and trust.

  • The agency family demonstrates our values by example.

Our Philosophy

      Transitions’ believes that domestic violence is a crime; the survivor is not responsible for the abuser’s actions. Client rights include, but are not limited to: the right to be treated with dignity and respect, to privacy, to cultural sensitivity, to self-determination in identifying and setting goals, to confidentiality, and to reasonable access to records. Transitions supports each person’s right to make the individual choices that she/he feels are best for herself/himself and her/his family in pursuit of self-determined goals. Safety must be the primary consideration when attempting to help survivors. 

Transitions’ philosophy is to provide safety and support, empowerment and advocacy, and education to allow persons accessing services to make choices without fear, coercion, or undue influence.
