Mission Statement:

   "To Promote Positive Family Preservation Within the African 
   American Community in the Areas of Education, Housing, 
   Social Justice, and Health Care."

                                        Code of Ethics

   As a black social worker, I commit myself to the interests of my 
   black people and subscribe to the following statements:

                           I regard, as my primary obligation, the
                          welfare of the black individual, family and
                          community and will engage in action for
                           improving social conditions.
                           I give precedence to this mission over my
                           personal interest.

                           I hold myself responsible for the quality
                          and extent of services performed by the
                          agency or organization by which I am
                          employed, as they relate to the
                          black community.

                          I accept the responsibility to protect the
                          black community against unethical and
                          hypocritical practice by any individual or
                          organization engaged in social welfare
                          activities.

                          I stand ready to supplement my paid or
                          professional advocacy with voluntary services
                          in the black public interest.

                          I will use my skills as an instrument for
                          social change, with attention to the
                          established black social institutions.
