Children and Families First has done an outstanding job in serving our state over that period. Among the characteristics of CFF that I value are: 1) a dedication to our clients by our staff, volunteers and Board 2) a focus on those areas where we have expertise and can make the greatest contribution, 3) a business-like approach to our service including a clear statement of our near and long-term goals and 4) strong staff leadership.

In my time with Children and Families first I have seen it grow, discontinue services which someone else could do the job better and step in and fill large and changing needs in our community where it could make the greatest contribution.

I would not change anything. I would continue its fine leadership, dedication to the community, and efficient use of its resources.

I have been on the board of CFF for five years, and I have always felt proud to be a part of this organization. The most important reason for this is the integrity and motivation of the staff, beginning the the CEO.
Communication is open. Issues, plans, problems are discussed in depth. The strategic plan is a working document and is referred to during discussions of programs, goals and results. Outcomes are monitored and programs are adjusted to create more efficient results.

This organization has served Delaware for 126 years. It has demonstrated unwavering dedication to meeting the many needs of children and families in this area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The structure has been provided to identify and address areas where change is needed as it arises. I would not make any changes to this organization at this time.
