ASOH is committed to diversity, equity, and belonging and strongly encourages all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), women, LGBTQ+ individuals, and those with protected class backgrounds. We value the individuals that we hire and are committed to creating a positive work environment for all identities. We are dedicated to creating a positive and inclusive environment for all volunteers and beneficiaries of all identities.
We are committed to not only providing a diverse and inclusive workplace, but an inclusive community where we value the health and well-being of all our staff and community members. ASOH offers 100% paid health and medical benefits to employees, along with generous paid sick and vacation time. We also believe in providing a workplace that fosters advancement and professional development for all employees, conducting our day-to-day business practices accordingly.
Learning and Reading:
We seek culturally diverse books to inspire the young people we serve as well as the broader community. Our “Love Library” contains a book list for both young adults and children. We read these book ourselves and share with the youth we serve. Please share with us your books and your ideas for this list.
What Is Inspiring Us?
We celebrate inspired diverse works of art (in the form of movies, books, documentaries, streaming series, essays, podcasts, music, and poetry) by sharing on our social feeds a series that we call What Is Inspiring Us? When we are moved by a piece of work that elevates the consciousness we share it.
We Celebrate Those We Serve and Embrace Their Input:
We celebrate the accomplishments of all we serve during the home creation and also on this page on our website. ASOH has hired former foster youth in the past and always has paid former foster youth consultants. ASOH has a former foster youth on their board and seeks to elevate the voices of former foster youth through our social media platforms and in-person events.
How We Continue to Progress:
The ASOH Blogs capture our efforts to grow, evolve, learn and become ever more efficient in our contribution to those we serve and society as a whole. We acknowledge we will not always get it right but we will always strive to do and be better. We also acknowledge that the work we do is forging a new frontier and can contribute greatly to improved well being for communities and add data and literature to science. We embrace collaborations of all kinds to be all that we can be in the most efficient and meaningful ways.
A unique space and opportunity for learning and healing for all.
We bring together volunteers to work in communities that they would normally never visit. And we connect young disenfranchised BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) people (mostly women and 50% have children of their own) with compassionate members of the broader community that they might otherwise not meet, let alone link arms with to create a home for themselves, and when they pay it forward — create a home for others.

We strive for a world in which all humans thrive in health and happiness, yet for those who don’t feel safe in society, thriving can feel like an unrealistic dream. So we harness the power of this ASOH movement to ensure sustainable liberties for all.
