Service: Provide excellent, reliable service to families and to the community, as well as recognize and honor the service offered to the community by others.

Passion: Passion for inspiring people to reach their full potential and contribute back to their community. This passion inspires our decisions, programs and optimism about the powerful potential and positive contribution of Yakima’s families.
