To strive toward our mission of “providing dignity and love like Jesus, bringing people together to build stronger, healthier communities” and to meet our goal of “fostering a caring, kind, and inclusive environment to ensure that those we serve leave feeling dignified and respected”, Family Network has established the following Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement:
Family Network of Wyoming staff, board, and volunteers are committed to establishing and promoting a safe and welcoming environment in all policies, practices, programs, and business and community relationships. We actively seek to promote access, equity and inclusiveness in our operational practices with relentless positive energy. Family Network will not tolerate discrimination based on race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, marital status, political belief socioeconomic status, ability level, or other factors that deny the essential humanity of all people.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are Biblical mandates modeled by Jesus throughout His teachings. God calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:39) and care for the least of these (Matthew 25:40).

All staff, volunteers, and board members of Family Network of Wyoming have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times.

All staff and board members are required to attend and complete annual diversity awareness training to enhance their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility.
Individuals who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with Family Network of Wyoming’s D&I policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a manager or board member.
