HCSS believes fairness, equality and inclusiveness is of the utmost importance in fulfilling its mission to the communities it serves. Based on this belief, the agency recognizes that in order to be effective, it must promote an organizational culture, recruitment, partnerships, and other business practices that demonstrate inclusiveness. We recognize and value any aspect by which people are different from one another. We promote and measure inclusiveness in various aspects of its internal and external functions. These encompass the entire organization from its board, its staff, its clients and how services are delivered.
