2Hope is the emotional state which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life. In the lives of so many families that Heartspring touches, hope may be all they have. The need for the unique services Heartspring provides is not confined to just our community, it is truly a global situation. As we move forward in our quest to meet the needs of so many, we are excited about the further development of our International outreach program and the major advances Heartspring is pioneering in the use of technology to facilitate care and education. It is no secret that, as a nation, we are working through some very difficult economic times. The present is filled with uncertainty and the future is unpredictable. As we review the ‘State of the Union’ at Heartspring we are proud to recognize the solid consistency we have maintained throughout these challenges. We have demonstrated remarkable fiscal discipline while maintaining focus on our strategic plan for the future. It gives us great confidence that the support and contributions we ask of our community are in the care of honorable and visionary stewards. As we look forward, it is reassuring to know that Heartspring has the resources to ensure that we can continue to develop and expand programs so desperately needed by the families we serve. The future is bright at Heartspring, with talented and dedicated educators, a stable and progressive executive staff, diverse and talented trustees and a solid plan for growth; there is so much to look forward to.On behalf of the board, I offer our heartfelt gratitude to our community of supporters who give to Heartspring in innumerable ways, each so vital in their own manner. With your continued good faith and support you help us offer hope to those that need it most.
