Our Values & Motto

Our Values

The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation embraces these truths:

 

 

Each person has a unique reason for being, and some gift/talent to offer — Peace is for ALL people.

 

 

Hope is real. It begins with an attitude, and an attitude is a choice.

 

 

Peace is possible. It grows from our choices in thoughts, words, and deeds.

 

 

Peace is rooted in being ˜okay™ with who we are, which is possible when our basic needs are met.

 

 

Peace grows when the basic needs of all people are equitably met.

 

Peace is possible when we get to know our Community of Neighbors — our neighbors around the block and around the world.

 

 

Education is essential to understanding the diverse needs of all people.

 

 

Collaboration, communication, and mutual respect are essential to peace.

 

 

Each person can make choices that touch the future in a hopeful, peaceful way.

 

 

Celebrate Mattie’s philosophy: “Remember to play after every storm!”
