Advocate's Creed

We are here to listen…not to work miracles…

We are here to help people discover what they are feeling, not to make the feelings go away…

We are here to help people identify their options, not to decide for them what they need to do…

We are here to discuss steps with people, not take steps for them…

We are here to help people discover their own strength, not to rescue them and still leave them vulnerable…

We are here to help people learn to choose, not to make it unnecessary for them to make difficult choices…

We are here to provide support for change…
