What You Can Expect

Penquis is a community of people who have joined in common mission to assist others in preventing, reducing, or eliminating poverty in their lives. Our individual contributions are enhanced by our collective efforts.

We offer assistance, support, and partnership to service recipients, service providers and all others who work with us. We prefer personal, face-to-face interaction. We listen and respond with care, courtesy, candor, and patience. We are discreet and respect the confidentiality of the information with which we are entrusted.

We accept the need to be accountable to the public for the resources with which we are entrusted. We are self-motivated, committed to doing our best work and honest in our use of our time and talents, recognizing that we share a reputation that is dependent upon the actions and behaviors of each of us. We take pride in our work.

We share the responsibility to create and maintain a clean, safe work environment that enables each of us to do our best job and to realize our personal purpose and potential through Penquis. Personal commitment to mission, enthusiasm for the work, mutual support and an interest in finding some fun amongst the toil are the most important things we offer to each other.

We are honest and candid about our individual and collective performance; we look to do better what we do well. We are adaptable. Prudence is balanced by the real and immediate need for action; we take calculated risks and accept failure as part of the lifelong learning process.
