Working With Palmer Home

Palmer Home is a refuge for those who need it most. We recognize the potential of each individual we encounter. We want each and every person we currently serve, those we have served in the past, and those we will serve in the future to know that here, in this space, your story and your person is sacred and respected.

Our Cultural Values

Our cultural values are more than suggestions; they are the essence of our organization and its mission to serve our communities by providing hope and healing. Our values are the deeply ingrained principles that guide all of our actions; they serve as our cultural cornerstones. They are inherent and can never be compromised, either for convenience or short-term economic gain.


We encourage our team to show up as they are, fearfully and wonderfully made. We value the diverse skills, experiences, and backgrounds of each member of our team.


Embracing the inevitably of change, and always willing to shift when it’s in the best interest of the children we serve. Adaptability to us means showing a posture of learning.


Everyone is welcome and has a seat at the table. Through collaboration, teamwork, and communication, we seek to create an environment where everyone feels welcome.


As an organization and as a member of the Palmer Home team, a willingness to give and a willingness to serve should be at the core of who we are and what we do.


We are firmly rooted in the gospel and driven by our Christian mission to serve those in need. He leads and we follow. Our faith is strengthened by collective prayer and a common purpose.
