Our Organization’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

For more than 35 years, Vogel Alcove has been committed to ongoing and sustainable progress in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Inclusiveness is core to our values and essential to accomplishing our mission to be responsive to the needs of everyone in the community, regardless of their racial/ethnic background. We will create and implement programs that reflect our awareness of our population’s cultural differences and treat all clients with respect. Furthermore, we will create an organizational culture that values people of all backgrounds and that is based on our values of respect, integrity, and honesty for all. Our commitment to inclusiveness is evident in our policies and procedures, our employee and volunteer lifecycle, our strategic plan, and our organizational goals. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Value Statement will evolve as our knowledge about these issues continues to grow.

We recognize that some of the children that we serve are disproportionately impacted by racism, inequality and other social injustices that continue to exist in our community and the world generally.

  • We are committed to leveraging all our assets in creating an environment that is equitable, transparent, and inclusive.

     

  • We are committed to exploring and implementing culturally sensitive, innovative best practices to build a framework that expands our engagement of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or disability through our programs, leadership, and the community.

     

  • We value self-reflection, growth, and collaboration from our employees, the families we serve, and leaders in the community.

     

  • We value listening, understanding, and active participation to work towards dismantling barriers to equity justices of all kinds.

     

  • We recognize racism and ethnic discrimination have contributed to historical and presently persisting disparities which we will continue striving to overcome.

     

  • We unequivocally denounce racism and ethnic discrimination because it undermines the well-being and vitality of our communities.

Our collective future requires that all of us — as individuals and families, neighborhood groups and faith communities, small businesses and large companies, schools, and governments — commit to fighting racism in all its forms.

Join the movement to collectively use our power as leaders, donors, volunteers, and staff to positively impact our community and the youngest victims of homelessness and their families.
