Our Belief & Values
Sterling Solutions is a nonprofit organization dedicated to community spiritual, psychological and physical integrity.
Founded and operated by mental health consumers, we believe there is a plan and a purpose for every life regardless of its present challenges and that anyone with a desire to contribute should not lack meaningful opportunities to do so.
We believe in synergistic relationships where the strong open doors and create opportunities for others in a culture of support and collaboration.
We believe mental health peers provide the expertise of lived experience that form bonds of trust - trust that creates hope and encourages the first step of the journey on the pathway to recovery.
We believe the passion of those who choose to make helping others their life's work should be encouraged and wholly supported - educationally, vocationally, financially and in the principles and practices of agency and community settings.
People are the most precious resource. The best communities are rich with opportunities for all.
