POLICY
All MCCA employees are expected to work as a team to accomplish whichever tasks are necessary to meet the needs of the survivors we serve. This may include diverse tasks such as assisting with sorting donations, grocery shopping, etc. as needed. MCCA uses a Trauma Informed Care Empowerment Model of advocacy and counseling and expects all employees to serve as role models for the survivors and their children. This means treating all members of the program/shelter (survivors, volunteers, other employees and supervisors) with respect and compassion.
We are a multi-racial, multi-ethnic program and shelter, which means that we have clients from a variety of backgrounds (i.e., different cultures, classes, races and sexual orientation) living closely together.
