2018 Message from the Executive Director and President of the Board
The theme for 2018 was “Preparing for Growth” and at year end the theme turned out to be quite fitting. 2018 was a year of not only preparing for growth, but growing substantially. Both our staff and services grew to new levels. Our partnerships as well as our donor base also grew. And, because of YOUR assistance, we were able to reach new record numbers of individuals with our evidence-based services. Over the year, we have developed four focal areas for the Kellin Foundation, including: victim advocacy and patient navigation (case management); clinical assessment, treatment and peer support; youth leadership and development; and community mobilization and outreach. Through these four areas, and with support from people just like YOU, we have doubled our numbers and created a synergy with community partners that has allowed us to live out our mission and make a difference together in the lives of so many across our community.
In 2018, we also launched our Smiles 4 Miles 5K and Fun Run; we wrestled it out at our GRAWL fundraiser; we enjoyed our second Journey to Brave Fundraiser, Auction, and Benefit; and had record numbers in attendance at our Pinwheels in the Park event. It was a smashing year of success and packed full of partners just like you! We look forward to making these annual events as they help us support our programs.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and amazing Kellin Foundation staff, we thank you for your important role in helping the Kellin Foundation prepare for growth in 2018!
