Transformation and Innovation

2016 marks a significant milestone for Family Day:
165 years of serving children and their families.

As we celebrate this noteworthy anniversary, we proudly look back and reflect on the astounding transitions we have experienced. Yet, despite our longevity, we have found the past six years to be among the most exciting for us, as we trained our focus on transformation and worked to revitalize and refresh our services and programs.

As part of our efforts to further this momentum, and build upon our capacity and strengths, Family Day’s new strategic plan was born. This plan focuses squarely on “innovation” and everything that means to our agency moving forward. It is a strategy that will help propel us onward during the next six years.

Working collaboratively with our board members and staff, we created a plan with a vision and mission that speak to our core services. We also developed clear goals that will improve and expand services for the many children and families we serve.

We extend our thanks to those who have supported us throughout our long and remarkable journey. And we look forward to your continued support in the future.

It is a future we move into with great enthusiasm. Through collaboration with our board, staff, partners and sector allies, we will continue to build upon our rich history, advance our current strengths, and further our vast potential.
