WPA Guiding Principles

WPA Guiding Principles

Capacity for Constructive Change
Each of us is capable of achieving personal transformation

Respect and Compassion
We honor the diversity of experiences and recognize our common humanity. Every person brings equal value and should be treated with equal regard as all others.

Contribution
Each individual has the ability and responsibility to conduct good works that can improve one’s own and others’ lives and the condition of the community.

Accountability
Each of us is answerable for our own decisions and behaviors.  We are capable of acting consciously, learning from and taking responsibility for the results.

Integrity
We strive to create an environment and work in a manner that is consistent with these principles.

"My children had been in foster care for two years; they were angry and hurt. WPA helped us to heal and to build a new, strong family bond."
