    House of Friendship Inclusion and Diversity

    rainbow-flagCompassion, inclusion, justice and dignity are core values at House of Friendship and integral to our mission of service to those in need. We extend the hand of friendship to ALL; we believe EVERYONE has a seat at the table; we value a society where ALL have a voice; and we honour the self-respect of each and EVERY person.  Therefore, we recognize and celebrate diversity, those characteristics that make individuals unique such as (but not limited to) national origin, language, age, race, colour, family structure, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic (income) status and gender identity.

    House of Friendship values employees’ contributions of time, skills, expertise, dedication, and commitment. In its 2012 Strategic Visioning process, House of Friendship identified a strategic direction of, ‘being an organization which invests in its staff and engages all in our shared vision’, and a commitment to, ‘creating and supporting an environment where all are respected and valued.’ In keeping with this direction and commitment, House of Friendship has since become a member of Living Wage Waterloo Region with a current ratio of 3:1 between the highest and lowest paid positions.  We believe that a living wage and sustainable income gap are part of a healthy community, and that employees are a very important part of our community.
