We've learned so much this year.
We've learned what it means to deliver direct supports to families and children living in underserved situations and stay focused on bigger systems level change. We've learned how to shift our efforts to maximize our ability to train healthcare professionals and maintain meaningful relationships. We've learned how to remain resolute on our goal to develop sustainable models to advance child empowerment and how to stay flexible in the face of great change.
Perhaps our most important lesson from 2020 has been one of balance. We have learned to balance the need to be directly serving during times of great struggle and build the structures that will foster long-term change. All of these efforts require clarity of purpose. And, another great lesson we learned in 2020 is clarity.
Clarity requires structure. It requires a conscientious commitment to building and reinforcing our purpose and advancing our efforts. For Health Bridges, this has meant spending time assuring we have the systems in place to foster rigor, excellence, and competence. We know how important it is to maintain the highest standards in everything we do.
To meet these standards and goals, we partner with academic institutions, subject matter experts, and community members to create a collaboration culture. And, this brings us to another one of our great lessons from 2020 - collaboration.
We know we can do so much more when we invite collaboration. We know we can have a significant impact when we contribute to an ecosystem of change. We know we can build the models and supports that will help the next generation of change - when we collaborate broadly and deeply.
We've learned a great deal in 2020. We're ready to take those lessons into 2021 and have even more impact. Thanks for all the support.
