Living the Mission at Maryhaven- is a felt experience every day. It happens in the care and compassion given by staff to our individuals. It is felt when an individual achieves his/her goal for the first time. It is lived out in the ‘everyday miracles’ that occur because of the dedication, devotion and persistent care given by staff.
It appears and is fostered by:
Orientation – Employees introduced to the Mission and values of CHS and Maryhaven including the history of the Founding Sisters, The Daughters of Wisdom who began this good work in 1930.
Employee Honoree of the Month – Monthly honoring of employees for outstanding service; living the mission.
Reflection Days- Days of renewal and refreshment for recommitment to the mission
Prayer Program- prayer experiences in group homes, programs; seasonal celebrations, weekly ‘hope notes’, and prayers/services at times of bereavement.

Service Awards- Annual event to honor and celebrate the service of employeesLeadership Development- planned programs to enrich leadership skills and infuse mission awareness; ‘breakfast club’, ‘virtues project’,’ listening sessions’, and strategic planning
