Year-End Reflections

The week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day is often the quietest for a majority of communities and families. Many use it as a time for reflection of the year gone by and for looking forward to a new year full of opportunities

For Children’s Friend we can reflect on 2017 as a year of tremendous successes and continued challenges. In the face of unrelenting concerns about the federal and state budgets, we experienced: record breaking work in our Advancement Team in fundraising through major events and award winning grant writing, growth in the number of employees on our payroll working to support families, and, expansion of programs and agency hours to better serve our families!

In 2018, we hope for this for the families we serve, our staff, and our partners in service:

For every hardship you also have ease and prosperity.
For every sadness you also have joy in your heart.
For every challenge you have tremendous success.

Happy New Year!
