The mission statement at Little City reads “creating hope, changing lives, challenging all limits.” These three simple concepts truly encompass the core ideals of Little City.
But what I really love about the mission statement is that it is a call to action. These are active words and active words mean nothing without action behind them.
In this edition of the Tapestry, you will read stories about how the challenging, creating and changing are happening every day at Little City. The mission statement is on display across this vibrant community every time people pursue their dreams, work to overcome obstacles and fulfill their potential.
This mission statement is on display every day because of you.
