Our Values

We affirm that EVERY Tamaquan has innate value and dignity.

We are good neighbors.

We have heart.

Our Mission

To create the opportunity for Tamaquans to be connected to the community by participating in the Framework for Happiness

Five Factors in the Framework for Happiness

Financial Health

Money may not be able to buy happiness, but financial health is certainly a contributing factor when people report how happy they are!

Health & Wellness

“Well, at least you have your health!” is not just something you say. Physical and mental health and wellness can be important to happiness.

Social Relationships

Having positive people in your life and meaningful connections with friends and family can lead to happiness.

Sense of Purpose

On a mission? People who have a clear sense of purpose in life tend to report being happier than those who do not.

Community Engagement

Participating, volunteering, voting and engaging in civic activities correlate with happiness – those attending civic meetings already know that!
