Leadership comes from ones commitment to live by the values in which they believe that are grounded with a strong ethical commitment to do the right thing. FWOGC strongly believes in the philosophy that leadership is a trait that can only be exhibited by a person’s actions and deeds. It is from within that philosophy and value based system that FWOGC intends to operate.
These values are strongly grounded in our belief that FWOGC must maintain a broad spectrum of options for our customers to choose from; that these services must be of the highest quality and supported by well trained, motivated people; that all individuals receiving services and employees must be allowed to make personal choices, and to have those choices supported if they are within our resource capabilities.
It is the policy of FWOGC to recognize that each person's cultural differences must be recognized and respected and to allow each individual the right to have their cultural differences acknowledged and respected. These rights are not limited to the staff, and caregivers but are to include all individuals regardless of the sponsoring agency. Our administration and personnel are sensitive to maintaining a staff that is representative of the racial, ethnic, and economic diversity of our individuals in our programs.
