Mission & Core Values

Our mission is to create a community space where people from all walks of life come together to share nourishment, connection, and learning for body, mind, and spirit.

In order to ensure that the Café’s mission and vision are fulfilled its founders identified their core values and implemented them. Every board, committee, and staff meeting begins with our reminding ourselves of the following:

  • Three Peacemaker Tenets: Openness: letting go of fixed ideas, so that I may, Bear witness: to the joy and suffering of the world, in order to facilitate the emergence of Loving actions: that heal myself and others.

  • The Four Agreements: Be impeccable with your word. Don’t take anything personally. Don’t make assumptions. Always do your best.

These mentor statements aided in the formation of our core operating values at the Café. The staff and board of directors affirm and promote core values that ensure that all people are valued.

At the Café we know that all people are striving to do their best and that we are always a work in progress. Through our sharing and connections we learn about one another. Through our communication we create relationships. We treat one another with respect and compassion when discussing challenging issues. We resolve to try again when we fall short.
