Our Mission

Sieda Community Action works with communities to secure opportunities for people in need through advocacy, counseling, education, partnerships, and supportive services.

Our Vision

We envision communities of resilient citizens who are involved, self-reliant, and contribute positively to their families and communities.

The Promise of Community Action

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Our Organizational Values

We at Sieda Community Action believe in the promise of community action. If we are to change lives and make our communities a better place to live, we must hold our staff, our leadership, our partners, and our organization as a whole to high standards of appropriate and ethical behavior. At Sieda Community Action, we value:

Accountability

We have a willingness to accept responsibility and account for our actions.

Cooperation

We believe people working together toward a common goal often achieve results greater than the sum of the parts.

Dedication

We strongly support the work and promise of community action. We are loyal to our organization and our clients, and work hard to achieve the best possible results.

Empathy

People must have the capacity to understand, be aware of, be sensitive to, and vicariously experience the feelings, thoughts, and experiences of another.

Growth and Development

We strive to expand our knowledge, understanding, and the impact of our organization on the communities we serve. We embrace changes that help us achieve our mission, vision, and the promise of community action.

Honesty

We are fair and truthful. We cannot change what we don’t acknowledge. We tell ourselves, our clients, and our partners the truth. We do the right thing even when it’s difficult.

Respect

We see people as people. We encourage a sense of self worth by treating people fairly,  honoring individual differences, and understanding that the hopes, needs, cares, and fears of others are as valuable as our own.

Responsibility

We do what is expected or required in our work and partnerships, and honor the commitments we make.
