Carson’s Village is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to non-discriminatory practices, policies, and procedures on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, culture, religion, national origin, age, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, appearance, immigration/citizenship status, home language, socioeconomic status, or disability. We firmly agree and abide by all anti-discrimination laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA.)
Carson’s Village is committed to:
Equal and Equitable Opportunity: Providing equal and equitable opportunities and access to all our programs, services, and resources without regard to protected characteristics of the people we serve. Everyone has access to our Direct Support, Continuing Support, Peer-to-Peer Program, and Support Group Program for no cost to promote social welfare across the nation.
Inclusivity: Understanding, identifying, and fostering an inclusive environment within our organization (employees, interns, and other contracted partners) and the communities we serve. Inclusive language, systematic training, and open communication are some of the ways we strive for a culturally competent organization.
Non-Discrimination: Ensuring that no one experiences discrimination, harassment, or exclusion based on their identity or background while engaging with, obtaining services, or working for our organization.
Accountability and Restorative Justice: Taking prompt and appropriate action against any form of discrimination within our organization and continuously improving our policies and practices through research-based interventions. Carson’s Village has a zero-tolerance policy for unethical and unjust behavior.
We strive to incorporate new ideas that support the growth of the mission of Carson’s Village. Anti-Discriminatory Practices such as the DBIE (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) inclusion system play a crucial role in the structure of our organization. By upholding these principles, we strive to contribute to a more just, equitable, and inclusive world where we can help families find their Villages.
