Our Guiding Values

  • Determination: NYCOFI fights to increase power for low-income families who have been historically locked out of decision-making at the local, state, and national levels.
  • Commitment to Social and Economic Justice: NYCOFI embraces and works towards a vision of society where discrimination of all kinds is eliminated.
  • Compassion: NYCOFI is motivated by a deep understanding of the distress and hardships that exist in low and moderate income communities, including communities of color, and develop programs based on needs uncovered through building close, personal relationships with families in these communities.
  • Integrity: All Board members and staff are bound by a code of conduct, which holds us to the highest standards of honesty, transparency, consistency, and responsibility.
