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. These values – as ratified by our Board of Directors on September 13, 2023 – reflect our attitudes toward our mission, the people we serve, and our stakeholders.


We champion every individual’s right to control their life and pursue their personal success.


We advance solutions specifically for the people we serve and challenge ourselves to make our communities stronger.


We demonstrate a person-first mindset toward those we serve and honor their strengths.


We listen, pursue all that is possible, carry ourselves with sincerity and humility, and are inclusive without bias.
