Mission and Values

Our Mission

Creating brighter tomorrows by strengthening children and families today.
Our Mission

Bauer’s mission 
is at the heart of every program and service offered to our community. It is our belief that every child and family has a desire for a life that is filled with success, strong family and community connections and hope for tomorrow. Bauer’s work is measured against this mission statement to ensure we are true to it. The mission statement is reviewed by the Board of Directors annually to make sure it continues to embody the needs of the communities we serve.
