It’s been an exhilarating 12 months at One Hope United! Our brand new Annual Report reflects the changes from the last year and tells you all about exciting new opportunities on our horizon. Click on the image below to view the full report online.
In 2014 we realigned from a regionally-based set of programs into three distinct lines of service: Early Learning and Child Development, Placement (foster care and adoption), and Community-Based Family Support Services. This move allowed us to streamline our operations and align our best practices across the continuum of our services, regardless of region—ensuring each of the 10,000 children and families we serve receive the highest-quality services and care, no matter where they live.
Another exciting development that underscores our commitment to innovation was OHU’s selection through the Conscience Community Network (CCN) as one of the recipients of a multi-million dollar Social Impact Bond, which will fund the expansion of proven programs that serve children who are dually involved in Illinois’ child welfare and juvenile justice systems. This public-private partnership places us among a select group of organizations across the country that is embarking on promising new models of collaboration with government agencies and private funders.
At One Hope United we learn something new every day. And with your support we’ll continue to learn. We’ll continue to innovate. And we will pursue with a relentless energy—and sense of urgency— our mission of protecting children and strengthening families.
