As leadership, this year has seen us make significant progress on governance as we work with the Niagara Community Foundation to improve policy. Grazia Shepard, first-time board chair, led with grace and courage. She kept us going through the tremulous year. Although our board is not yet at the point we’d like to be in terms of governance and policy, COVID has only slowed us down; we’re on the right path.
Finally, despite all these challenges, we’ve been blessed with financial success. With the payment of our mortgage in full by a generous donor and the increase in tithes, we are now closer to financial sustainability than ever before.
Thank you to those who continue to give of their money and time, and who share love, despite the struggle, pain, and isolation. We see you on zoom, we hear you at church, we welcome you at the Centre, we love you.
