Year Sixteen – 2002

Improving efficiencies and building up our infrastructure may not sound exciting, but in our Year 16 both endeavors were mission-critical. In all of our growth, we now found ourselves serving over 1200 children, youth and families annually, with a continuing to increase staff. This growth meant we needed better systems throughout, so our Year 16 found us turning internally to build up and build out!

We hope that you will join us over the next 30 weeks as we share the journey of the Family Care Network, highlighting our partners and collaborators who made the last 30 years of care possible.
