Every year at CHIRS, we set goals for ourselves. We do this in collaboration with our stakeholders – our staff, clients, community partners, funders, and our Board of Directors. The intention that underpins the development of those goals is the desire to deliver the highest possible quality of service for our clients. How do we achieve this high quality of service? By making good use of our resources, maintaining a high level of efficiency, building a culture of safety, and minimizing risk.
We are justifiably proud of our Exemplary Standing designation from Accreditation Canada, which we have held for the past eight years. Our exceptional staff are fully committed to upholding that service standard and demonstrate that commitment every day. Our volunteer Board of Directors give openly of their skill and time to help keep us on track. Our client families, community partners, and funders provide contributions essential to achieving our goals. It takes a village.
It is with pleasure that we offer CHIRS’ Impact Report 2019 as a way of sharing our progress with you. ...read the full article
