Our Values

We stand for equal and just treatment of all people.

We treat people experiencing homelessness with dignity and respect.

We value integrity and are accountable and transparent in all interactions.

We empower our participants to move forward on their pathway to housing through establishing trusting relationships and providing safe, compassionate, and flexible services that meet people where they are.

We provide leadership and advocacy for collective impact, and we support public policy that leads to a reduction and eventual ending of homelessness in Santa Cruz County.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Housing Matters mission, vision, and values reflect our fundamental belief that all individuals belong and deserve justice, inclusivity, respect and to be treated with dignity.

We believe that each person has the right to participate in communities that are free from bias, promote equity, and prohibit unlawful discriminatory practices. We celebrate the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique including race, gender, age, sexuality, ability, religion, national origin, gender identity, and lived experience. We are committed to aligning our values, culture and practices to be a model of diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and belonging, for all who interact with our organization.

We’re dedicated to maximizing the potential of our greatest asset—our employees. We embrace change and the opportunity it brings, and are committed to delivering quality services, support, and accuracy in our data & reporting.

We will diligently ensure a safe and healthful working environment for all; throughout the processes of recruiting, developing, recognizing, and retaining our diverse workforce.”
