29 Sep Striving to Become the Premier Service Provider for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking
*Note: The State of the Organization Address was written in February 2020 and scheduled to be released in March. Due to the COVID-19 situation, we have postponed this plan and will be sharing with you at this time.
Take a moment and think back to 2018, when I first served as the Interim CEO. I was less stressed, more rested, and I was put in a situation of substantial organizational transition. However, the significant support from everyone around me has given me the strength and courage to give it my all and I am truly blessed to be part of this great organization. Today, I will share with you where we are now as an organization and what we hope to achieve in the year ahead.
But first, I want to thank our supporters who are strong believers of our mission, our Board of Directors who have been partners in everything we do, fellow staff members of my senior and general leadership team, and most importantly, the front-line staff of this great organization.
2019 was the genesis of a new era for us. After a period of reimagining the role of WTLC in our community through our strategic planning process, we have adopted a broader and clearer vision for us to move forward. Over the past year, we’ve come a long way in achieving that vision, and while there are still many challenges, I’m proud of what we have accomplished together to position us for a better future. And make no mistake, we are beginning a resurgence to become the premier service provider for survivors of abuse and exploitation.
This State of the Organization Address is to acknowledge and celebrate our success, recognize areas for improvement, and set our priorities for the year ahead. As we all know, we must work together with a common vision to build upon our organization’s accomplishments and move the needle towards ending the cycle of violence.
