“Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play … where nature heals and gives strength to the body and soul alike.” – John Muir

We believe that our communities are enriched by diversity. Our values lead to a practice of inclusion, of seeking out diversity, and of nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, or any other characteristic protected by law. Our commitment to diversity reflects our core values and affirms the Quaker heritage of the Kendal Corporation. Friends believe that each human life is valued — that there is “that of God” in every person. This conviction has led to more than three centuries of Quaker action to promote equality, respect for differences, and the dignity of all people. We share our values and value our differences.
