The Inasmuch Ministry Mission statement says “Helping people in need, offering hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ and promoting personal responsibility”.
In order to accomplish this mission, it is important that those working as Inasmuch staff treat all clients with respect and dignity. It is equally important that clients treat all Inasmuch staff with respect and dignity.
While in our facility, it is important that both staff and clients refrain from offensive language or swearing, outbursts of anger or threats of violence. Proper attire is to be worn at all times.
