Because our values are central to everything we do. It can be tough as a growing enterprise to keep hold of your values.
I still know why Your Own Place was created and what it set out to achieve. We’re still achieving it – the route has detoured however. It’s detoured because amazing opportunities arise as well as amazing people come along.
Do the ends always justify the means? If an investor came along tomorrow offering capacity and resource, it would be easy to go with it because it would enable us to reach more young people and achieve our mission of preventing youth homelessness.
In truth I’ve seen organisations sell out as well as grow too fast.
So we always look for people that share our values, because of the contribution they may to our mission.
