Diversity

Diversity 2We are committed to providing a welcoming environment to all people who live, work, and volunteer at Eden Community Homes.  To this end we have developed the following policy around diversity:

Eden Community Homes is committed to supporting and advancing a culture of shared values and behaviors, which are consistent with the mission, values and mandate of the organization.  Eden Community Homes also recognizes the richness and strength of diversity in the city of Toronto and the benefits it provides to the work and environment of the agency.

Eden Community Homes also recognizes that many in our City who are from diverse backgrounds face barriers to being able to fully access services, including discrimination.  To this end, Eden Community Homes values and promotes a caring, respectful and safe environment for staff, residents, and other stakeholders; one that is free of stigma, harrassment and discrimination.

Eden Community Homes is committed to leadership that respects the diversities of ethnicity, gender, race, age, physical and mental abilities, religion/spiritual identity, family status, immigrant/refugee status, language ability, gender identity, income level, literacy and sexual orientation.  This is demonstrated by inclusive, equitable practices and policies in relation to leadership, partnerships, service delivery/residence care and human resources.
