GUIDING PRINCIPLES

TAP FAITH seeks to develop our organization, enlist community partners, and recruit volunteers according to the following principles:

  • We will view our brothers, sisters and our surrounding community as our guests and neighbors with whom we wish to cultivate a relationship rather than being seen as the final resolution of individual and group problems. By God's grace and our efforts to do God's will, we believe problem solving solutions will be manifested for the poor, the down trodden, the homeless, prisoners and in time, all God's children in need.

  • We will collaborate with community leaders, citizens, local, State governments, educational institutions, human-service organizations, businesses, congregations, foundations, and other non-profit organizations to develop a spirit of inclusion and partnership.

  • We will create programs that open avenues to self-sufficiency, which will allow our friends to become productive and valuable members of our community.

  • We will seek to develop innovative cross-sectional partnerships by involving our friends in opportunities where they can offer their skills and leadership in the ongoing programs of TAP FAITH and those of our community partners.
