On behalf of our Boards and staff members,
I am pleased to share with you our Fiscal Year
2019 Impact Report. While this report barely
scratches the surface of the incredible work being
done in our organizations to positively impact the lives
of children and families, it does provide a glimpse into the
results of our efforts.
In this past year, we took a bold step to further expand our mission
reach by restructuring into five independent corporations -- which we
collectively refer to as the Chaddock Family of Organizations. The new
structure will allow us to be more focused and nimble, and ultimately
strengthen our ability to impact even more kids and families, both directly
I invite you to celebrate with us the accomplishments of the past year, and to walk
alongside us in the year to come as we continue to amplify our impact in new and exciting ways.
