A Letter from the Board of Directors

Over the past several years, I have had the pleasure of watching Craine House evolve into an organization of which many can be proud.  During this time, we moved to a larger facility that allows us to serve four times as many women and their children, continually add programs, and expand our staff and service providers.  Through hard work and dedication from the Executive Director, staff, and Board of Directors, the bar has been raised.  Craine House has faced our share of challenges, but because of this dedication we experienced many successes.

 

Craine House has witnessed many women successfully complete the program through the years.  These women left with gainful employment, stable housing, addictive behaviors under control, and most importantly, the ability to parent their children in a healthy manner.   A major component to effectively completing the program is our on-site learning opportunities for the women and children.  While we offer many valuable programs for the women and children, our child development and culinary vocation programs are two that stand out.  These are skills that will stay with these women for a lifetime.

 

With success also comes challenges.  Just like many other non-profit organizations, we rely on different funding sources to maintain and grow our organization.  While we demonstrated a level of success at raising money for the organization, the cost of maintaining a high level of standards for the women, children, and a large facility continues to rise.  With the dedication of the Board of Directors, Executive Director, and staff, we are confident that our efforts will continue to raise awareness for Craine House and its valuable services in our community.  We are dedicated to raising our donor engagement and grant awards to its highest level.

 

As we move forward, I am proud of what Craine House has accomplished during the past year.  We are a strong and vibrant organization, and we will continue our efforts to provide a culture of self-sufficiency and self-confidence that will allow our residents to leave with the tools needed to create brighter futures for themselves and their children.

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Craine House, thank you!
