Our Mission and Values

Ironbound Community Corporation’s mission is to engage and empower individuals, families and groups in realizing their aspirations and, together, work to create a just, vibrant and sustainable community.

ICC is animated by a core group of values, including: accountability, mutual respect, caring, commitment to excellence, and fairness and transparency.

We are responsible for the quality and outcomes of the programs we provide, for explaining why deviations from reasonable expectations may have occurred, and for responding responsibly at all times, especially when errors in behavior or judgment have happened.

Mutual Respect:
We accept the importance of each person’s rights, customs and wishes. We are courteous and supportive in all of our interactions with clients and colleagues.

We are willing to give our time and energy to the community, and we are constantly searching for ways to improve the lives of those we serve.

Commitment to Excellence:
We are committed to providing the highest quality of social services, earning our participants’ trust and striving to exceed their needs. We continuously learn from experience. We approach challenges with creativity and flexibility.

Fairness & Transparency:
We are committed to authentic communication, being willing and open to hearing the other side, and saying what we mean. Embracing inclusiveness, we welcome input and feedback from the community.
