2020 ANNUAL REPORT: Welcoming Change

The only constant in life is change, and like the rest of the world, we went through a lot of it in 2020. Everyone took a deep breath in, rolled up their sleeves, and said, “I am welcoming the change I can control, and these changes will meet the needs of our community.” With no director and minimal central leadership, staff took initiative, applied their program knowledge, and changed what services could meet new health and safety standards. During weekly online meetings, TNDF staff worked together to make what were sometimes difficult but necessary decisions; unfortunately, some of our programs came to a full stop. However, the combination of individual initiative and mutual support allowed for many of TNDF’s programs to successfully transition and continue. Nevertheless, we wanted to change even more.
