2016 has been a rough year for many of us. So when we say thank you to all our youth, community and Ministry partners, it feels like hardly enough.
This year we saw a transition to ConnexOntario and moved into our new offices at Innovation Works. And while these were both amazing opportunities for us, all change involves some level of stress. We learned to accept the unknown of building renovations in our new space, and be open to the culture of connecting daily with people outside our mental health and engagement silo. We started to find our space within a new organization, with a proud 25 year history.
So from the bottom of our hearts, I can say we truly want to thank everyone who was there for the ride with us this year. While our interactions may have been large or small, they have all made the difference to us. Thank you for your support, your passion and your love for everything we do and those we serve.
2017 is going to be an amazing year! We have two fanstastic students starting with us January 9th, and two more who are staying on staff in a part-time capacity. We have a number of amazing projects lined up with partners across Ontario and beyond. We have a few very exciting grants away that will take our program into new and exciting areas. It takes a truly engaged community to make collective impact, and we're doing that together, every day.
For more updates on the new year as it unfold, sign up for our newsletter. We're in the process of exploring new ways to deliver some exciting new content, and we'd love to keep you in the loop.
In the meantime, we wish you a safe and restful holiday season.
Take good care of yourselves and each other.
