Our two action plans are well underway. As with every year, I’m impressed with how committed our partners are to practice changes that will help us reach our collective goals with regard to the well-being of our 0-17 year olds and their families.
This morning, I find myself wondering if we learn anything from our experience? And if we draw on our strengths to adjust and improve our actions in order to reach the desired outcome?
Absolutely, yes! In my few years working with you, I’ve witnessed your capacity to adapt.
Of course, no one is perfect and we still have a way to go, especially when it comes to reaching out to the most vulnerable families, a major concern of ours...and everyone else’s in Quebec, for that matter.
Last year, as a result of this concern, the group reached another turning point, and you were bold enough to take a hard look at your organizations and choose to make changes that reflect your practices! In fact, in the meetings that were held over the last few months, many partners reaffirmed their intent to focus on adjusting organizational practices to foster a relationship of trust with families. Many actions will allow us to make our wish a reality. Some of these actions will help us become more aware of our practices and our strengths, find ways to improve ourselves, and discover how to better build a trusting relationship.
This work will continue in step with the Memphremagog Social Development Table’s concerns over reducing the stigma that surrounds poverty. Stay tuned!
