Being, Belonging, & Becoming (B3)

B3 represents our core values, enacted through coffee, friendship, and community. We value what it means to be, to belong, and to become...
  • cups
    BEING: we appreciate diverse ways of being & embrace the natural variation of what it means to be human. We recognize the inherent dignity and worth in being, and we honor individual differences.
  • cups
    BELONGING: we strive to create spaces where everyone belongs. Belonging, to us, means people of all abilities are fully engaged in communities of choice, and moreover, recognized as valued members.
  • cups
    BECOMING: we believe in becoming better together, through inviting diversity to enrich our lives, workplaces, and communities. One cup at a time, we strive to influence change toward a more inclusive and equitable world.

Our B3 Values reflect a mutual and ongoing benefit for our volunteers and the communities we impact.
