It is a delight to bring you Hull Services’ 2018-2019 Annual Report: Many hands, many stories. Many of the activities and achievements you will read about were in flight when I joined Hull in September 2018, and it has been exciting to come along side and work with our Senior Management Team, Board, front line staff, volunteers, donors and community partners to realize amazing results. Everything we do at Hull is predicated on strong relationships, and it is incredible what has been accomplished in the past year through partnerships and shared commitment to those we serve.
We have given much time and attention this year to refreshing our mission and values and identifying strategic directions to guide our work. This was an inclusive process that saw engagement throughout our programs and services and participation from a variety of our stakeholders. The resulting Strategic Directions document represents the beginning of an iterative process that will continue to be operationalized, refined and measured over time. I am excited to see where this will lead us as we “partner with young people and families, building resilience today for a brighter tomorrow.”
Our Board has shown incredible leadership through this time of transition. Many thanks to Kerry Dyte, outgoing Board Chair and to Stuart O’Connor, who is proving a passionate and focused leader. Hull Services has long had a reputation for providing leading edge child, youth and family mental health services. We are well positioned to build on our past success and continue to lead innovation and evidence based practice in trauma-informed care.
Executive Director, Hull Services
