Guiding Principles

Below, we have featured the eight guiding principles that Illumination Foundation abides by.


Act with ethics, integrity, and in harmony with our vision. Adhere to ethical standards, follow laws and safety standards, and apply best practices to all your work.


Stay humble, intellectually honest, and deal with reality constructively. Develop an accurate sense of self-worth based on your strengths, limitations, and contributions.

Sustainable Compassion

Find and focus on people’s strengths; foster hope and self-actualization with a continuous search to innovate and to have self-awareness and understanding of the self first.

Quest For Knowledge & Critical Thinking

Commit to be a lifelong learner and continuously develop your skills to evolve with the organization. Connect to advance the mission.

Client-Centered Care

Work hard to assist the client to achieve their stated client goals. Individualize client care to the best of your ability. Remove personal judgement and ensure our clients’ interest always comes first.


Think outside of the box with a “whatever it takes” attitude to assist clients in lowering the barriers to services. Take calculated risks and pursue mission-driven opportunities, even if they are not apparent.


Advocate for those whose voices often remain unheard. Collaborate, educate, and influence stakeholders to create solutions to disrupt the cycle of homelessness.

Stewardship & Compliance
