There are so many things that have been accomplished this year that make me feel proud to be the president of Family Ties. Despite the pandemic and the dispersal of the programs due to the upcoming renovations, the activities have continued and the staff have maintained the quality of services. When I read the coordinators’ reports each month I get an idea of the little bumps in the road, but everyone just shines. They make things work and, despite not being together in the building, the staff are cohesive and this comes across through the programming.
I believe this is largely because of the excellent leadership by the Family Ties director who has worked tirelessly throughout the long process of the renovation project. It will be wonderful when it finally comes to fruition and Family Ties will have a much improved, more efficient and accommodating space for its members.
I look forward to welcoming you all back in the building and I promise it will be worth the wait! On behalf of the board of directors, thank you for your continued support and for making Family Ties the wonderful organization that it is.
