Moving Forward Together
After what seemed like one of the wettest winter seasons on record for Orange County, we are now well into spring with the wild flowers blooming and butterflies migrating. The substantial rainfall caused plants to thrive, giving insects plenty of food to grow and transform. The striking thing about this amazing ecology is not only the magnitude, but that the migration is moving rapidly and directionally.
The spring seems to be our “busy season” for FaCT. Like the butterfly migration, several projects and initiatives are moving simultaneously with speed and intention. Our Data and Evaluation Team is participating in two research projects, which will ultimately inform our work and help with future programmatic decisions. The FaCT Family Resource Centers are participating in child abuse prevention activities for “Blue Ribbon Month”. And, our Conference Planning Committee is putting together our Annual FaCT Conference set for May 16, 2019 with this year’s theme entitled, “REFRAME”, where professionals will come together and think about how to view our work from different perspectives.
With so many moving parts, our challenge is to ensure that we are intentional and directional by continuing to stay focused on our mission of strengthening our community through supporting families and creating opportunities for children and youth to achieve their full potential. It is our hope that the efforts we are making today, will have a transforming impact on our communities tomorrow.
