At Think of Us, our team challenges itself to reimage – not just reform – the child welfare system so it truly supports children and families. The work is dynamic, bold, and urgent. And we’re committed to more than just our collective vision – we also care deeply about the “how.” Our team shares a set of core values that guide how we show up for one another and approach everything we do.
Children and families impacted by the system drive our work.
We work to transform – not fix - a broken system.
We identify and challenge imbalances of power.
We are focused on action, ready to take on the uncomfortable.
We settle for nothing short of transformative impact.
We lead with curiosity to bring new approaches to entrenched problems.
We admit our mistakes, lean into hard conversations, and look to constantly improve.
We strive to be humans that everyone – at TOU and beyond - wants on their team.
