As a new employee at First United Church Community Ministry Society, I have been treated with the utmost respect and kindness. Although it is my first experience working on the DTES, the collaborative and supportive team culture provides the perfect venue to do purposeful work in an open, accepting and inclusive environment. Each day, I see the live demonstration of the organizational values of dignity, respect, trust, justice and empowerment.
There are new leaders coming on board and each are here to serve the employees as well as the community members. This place is an oasis in a challenging neighborhood. Everyone is valuable and are treated as such. I am extremely grateful to be part of an exceptionally high functioning team and organization. If it is your purpose to help humanity, make a difference in the world and support social justice, First United is the place to live it each day.
A big thank you out to the amazing staff who make a positive difference for people, every moment!
