Our Values

Sights for Hope carries forward a tradition inspired by Helen Keller nearly a century ago to transform lives throughout Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and Monroe County. Our values reflect our attitudes toward our mission, the people we serve, and our stakeholders.

Service

We always are mindful that what we do is about those we serve and not about us.

Humanity

We recognize and reflect that we serve people with visual impairments and not blind, visually-impaired, nor disabled people.

Character

We are true to our word, authentic about who we are, and sincere in our relations with others.

Dignity

Our clients and patients deserve to live with it and our work deserves to be presented with it.

Humility

We take what we do seriously but do not take ourselves too seriously.

Possibility

We seek first to determine how something might be accomplished.

Flexibility

We are secure in that most challenges have more than one right answer and that others see things differently.

Influence

We appreciate that force makes one listen once while influence makes one listen again.

Impact

We make meaningful and measurable differences on the lives of those we serve.

Inclusivity

We encourage and seek participation, insights, and ideas from all people, especially those who are different from us.
