Bringing the community further into our mission not only better serves those in our care, but it really, truly helps us to understand and meet local needs. In our Year 29, we got to see how powerful and participatory our faith-based community could be in this effort.
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.
