Statement of Ethical Practices

Neighborhood Centers Inc. is proud of its relationships with the partners and vendors who work alongside us to bring resources, education and connection to emerging neighborhoods.

Our work would not be possible without adherence to ethical principles that guide our daily interactions with those we serve, and with those who work with us. Thus, we incorporate the following Core Values into everything we do:

  • Respect & Responsiveness
  • Leadership & Excellence
  • Accountability & Integrity
  • Growth & Innovation
  • Diversity & Inclusiveness

Specifically, our Core Value of Accountability states that "we recognize our responsibility to remain good stewards of the resources that are entrusted to us and to ensure the quality of the services we provide." Our Core Value of Integrity mandates that "we protect the credibility of our Agency and ourselves" and that “we establish boundaries in order to remain true to our vision, values and strategic initiatives."

Neighborhood Centers Inc.'s reputation for excellence and caring within the communities we serve is our most precious commodity.

Because of the importance we place on these principles, we ask all of our partners and vendors to contact us should they ever witness or hear of any activity conducted by an employee or partner that conflicts with our Core Values. Confidential communication can be directed to Toyi Vaughan, Director of Business Compliance & Design, at 713-685-6537 or Email Us.
