The Human Resources Director at Commons says she strives to be both “human” and “a resource”.
Similarly… Commons, as a human services organization, must be both “human” and “of service” to people. This is more than just PROVIDING services. This means we need to go out of our way sometimes.
For example, several Commons staff and board member recently toured Shriners Hospitals, simply because we did not know much about them. We came to learn that Shriners provides absolutely top-notch free health care for children with physical disabilities. We are now referring disabled children from our pre-schools to Shriners. It is a simple thing that is OF SERVICE to families. We might be the only way some parents would ever learn of Shriners – a jewel right here in our own city.
