Diversity - Equity - Inclusion

At A Whole Lotta Kindness, we are committed to fostering a community that embraces and celebrates the diversity of our youth population, recognizing the inherent value each individual brings to our organization. Our mission to empower youth who have aged out or are aging out of foster care, as well as homeless and abandoned teens, is rooted in the belief that every young person deserves the opportunity to thrive and succeed, regardless of their background, identity, or circumstances.

Diversity is at the heart of our organization, and we actively seek to create an inclusive environment that welcomes individuals of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds. We understand that true empowerment comes from embracing the richness of perspectives and experiences that diversity brings.

We are dedicated to promoting equity by addressing systemic barriers and injustices that may impede the progress of our youth. Our commitment to equity means providing equal access to support and resources, ensuring that each young person has a fair opportunity to secure stable housing, education, transportation, job placement, financial support, and more.

Inclusion is not just a goal but a guiding principle for us. We strive to create a culture where everyone feels valued, heard, and respected. We actively listen to the voices of our youth, recognizing and affirming the uniqueness of each individual. By fostering an inclusive environment, we aim to empower our youth to reach their full potential and contribute meaningfully to society.

As we pursue our mission, we acknowledge the importance of continuous learning and improvement. We are committed to regularly evaluating our practices, policies, and programs to ensure that they align with our values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through open dialogue and collaboration with our stakeholders, including the youth we serve, we will work towards creating a more just and inclusive future for all.

A Whole Lotta Kindness is dedicated to standing against discrimination, bias, and inequality in all its forms. By championing diversity, equity, and inclusion, we believe we can truly make a lasting impact on the lives of our youth, fostering a sense of belonging and enabling them to build a foundation for independence and success.
