VISION & MISSION
Emmaus House is a supportive, healing, inclusive, faith-based community for people in transition who empower themselves (and others) to build a society of compassion, opportunity, equity, and justice. Collectively we nurture, heal, build resilience, and lift one another up to our highest potential. Through relationships, we educate and mobilize the larger community to address issues of poverty and injustice while working together for peace and social change. We strive to heal ourselves, our community, and the world.
As Emmaus re-imagines itself for the next fifty years, we define our Mission Statement to be:
CELEBRATING COMMUNITY - CHALLENGING INJUSTICE
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou
At Emmaus House, we celebrate community not by the services we provide, but by the spirit in which we serve.
