Last Thursday, New Hope had the opportunity to celebrate 12 employees who have collectively dedicated 160 years of caring, compassion and hard work to our mission of enriching the lives of individuals with disabilities. At our quarterly Employee Recognition Event, we also celebrated employees who have recently completed their ANCOR certification, as well as three employees who have been nominated by their peers and awarded the Bee the Hope award. Celebrations like these remind us we truly are moving New Hope forward, so congratulations again to all of those individuals who have been recognized!
As we continue our work in our key focus areas of mission, workforce, services, quality and foundation, we want to share with you three key areas of concentration for the Leadership Council over the past week.
Last week, the Leadership Council recommended suspending moving forward with plans for an onsite daycare/childcare, also referred to as Growing Hope. The New Hope Board of Directors voted to support this suspension.
In light of this decision, an employee task force has been created to develop a recommendation for the space that had been set aside earlier for the development of Growing Hope. The Leadership Council looks forward to hearing employee recommendations for how this space could best be used to further our mission and support our core services moving forward.
Again, the Leadership Council is dedicated to continuing to move New Hope forward in a positive direction, keeping mission, workforce, services, quality and foundation at the forefront of all we do. If you have questions or concerns along the way, please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of the Leadership Council.
