Last week there was so much to celebrate here at Children’s Friend. Our annual Walk & Run sponsored by Panera Bread was a HUGE success, going well beyond our fundraising expectations. We had our site visit from the Council on Accreditation; our peer reviewers were “so impressed” with our work and we await the official decision next month. We got news that we were awarded three new state-funded Pre-K classrooms for the 2016-17 academic year–adding to the two we have, even more children will have this unique early childhood educational opportunity. And finally, we got the news that, again this year, we were named one of Rhode Island’s Best Places to Work!
Our efforts are validated by these acknowledgements, awards and accolades; providing us with the just the right amount of motivation to continue on our path of providing innovative services for clients, in an environment where people want to come to work every day. We hope the good news will keep coming our way as we continue to strive to live up to our mission and the values that define our work.
