2017 Annual Report
It's important for us to share our successes with everyone in the adoption community. Our annual reports allow us to share an organizational overview of the previous year, highlight our programs and services, and demonstrate how we've made an impact in the lives of children, youth, and adoptive families.
The report is released every June. If you would like to receive a hard copy of our current annual report, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-320-7330 ext 100.
2017 Annual Report
Over the last 40 years, we’ve helped thousands of families, answered thousands of phone calls and supported thousands of children and youth with knowing who they are, where they come from and to whom they belong. This past year, our staff, board, and community developed a new strategic plan that will help us to continue to deliver programs and services that are still relevant and that meet the needs of our clients and enhance the probability of permanence for children and youth.
This year, our Education department rebranded as Adoption & Permanency Learning (APL), and continues to support prospective and existing parents through a rich mix of online and face-to-face services. Over 4000 clients received support and connection in person, over the phone, or through one of our Facebook groups. We’re also proud that our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program matched 22 children and youth with prospective adoptive parents.
Did you know that over 40% of adoptive parents were first foster parents? In the fall we helped to launch Fostering Connections, a collaborative partnership project aimed at recruiting foster parents. And we’ve also been partnering with MCFD on a new online adoption portal, a personalized and user-friendly system that puts control in the hands of prospective adoptive parents.
All of this wouldn’t be possible if it weren’tfor the donors who believe in the work we do, the Board and volunteers who generously donate their time, and the staff who diligently implement the strategic plan. We are grateful for each and every one of you.
