ANNUAL GENERAL REPORT
Each year, the assembly of our Annual General Report allows our agency to pause and acknowledge the many things that have been achieved in a year. Perhaps not unlike many others, I have recently found that my moments of reflection extend further than the past few days, weeks, or months, but back to 2020 when we would come up against a challenge that seemingly no one was prepared for. While the intervening years have presented obstacles of their own, both around the world and closer to home, my reflections also turn to the strength of the human spirit and the unwavering resiliency and commitment that has been demonstrated in so many ways within our agency. While we continue to pivot, shift and adapt to changing circumstances and the needs of those we serve, one thing that comes through loud and clear is that we continue to remain true to the basics of our service delivery. Put in the simplest of terms, Catulpa’s core purpose is to “help” people. As I reflect on this, it is with sincere gratitude that I acknowledge each Board Member and Staff Person for their contributions in making this happen. As we continue to navigate a world that has been forever changed, helping others remains our guiding light and our core purpose. I hope that you will see within the pages of this Annual General Report our commitment to this very basic principle and the outstanding outcomes it has resulted in for those we have the privilege to serve.
