Core Values

The LACDA strives to disrupt the cycle of generational poverty and homelessness. Our core values guide our service delivery to the most vulnerable populations, including individuals experiencing homelessness, families with limited means, seniors, persons with disabilities, and veterans.

Leverage collective genius and engage with dignity and respect.

Commit in heart and mind to this agency’s vision and the people we serve and use that commitment to energize, engage, and inspire others.

Give value, intentionally, to other perspectives and lived experience, and let that value permeate how we work together, and for our clients.

Be consistently open, honest, ethical, and genuine.

Seek innovative and unexpected approaches to solving complex problems while recognizing ever shifting dynamics and externalities.

Treat open information sharing as a tool for empowering our workforce, our partners, and our agency to better serve our clients.
