 Family Health Care is a Safe Place

 Equity – We believe in the inherent worth of each individual and strive to interact respectfully and fairly with each person, particularly those who are most vulnerable by approaching each individual with compassion and caring.
 
A critical value of Family Health Care 

 

Family Health Care is a Safe Place-

We pledge to be a welcoming place for GLBTQ people, for refugees, for immigrants, and for people who may feel threatened because of their sexuality, their immigration status, race or ethnicity.

 “When things fall apart, the children of the land scurry and scatter like birds escaping a burning sky....They will never be the same again because you cannot be the same once you leave behind who and what you are, you just cannot be the same....Look at them leaving in droves, despite knowing they will be welcomed with restraint in those strange lands because they do not belong”
- NoViolet Bulawayo
