Today is our birthday! On October 30, 1953, we were granted our official charter to operate as an independent child welfare agency. It took us some time to get things up and running, but by 1954, we had 3 staff and a $27,000 budget. That compares to today, when we have 180 staff and a $24 million budget.
We have created a commemorative book, entitled 65 Years of Brighter Futures, that reviews our past and considers our present, and can be accessed by clicking here. Happy Birthday to us!
