When I look back and reflect on 2015, I think of the many, many successes that have occurred, but also the struggle of maintaining and expanding programs to support the many families, children and older adults that we serve. I am often overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the people that support the Family Center’s mission.
Our achievements are due to the commitment of the Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers that go above and beyond each and every day. Thank you for your help and involvement in making ETFC a core institution for the East Toledo Community.
While the Center is able to accomplish many things each year, the foundation on which we perform our work and conduct ourselves is just as critical. We refer to this as the “Circle”. The “Circle” is our core values which include collaboration, integrity, respect, commitment, leadership and enriching. We reflect on these on a daily basis.
What we believe about our circumstances and our community steers our thoughts and actions. Now is the time to become involved in the community, for the community; strengthening one life at a time. More good things will continue to happen and I’m looking forward to a great 2016!
