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.
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.
