PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE B u i l d i n g o n O u r H i s t o r y

It was a busy year at Child & Family Services of Eastern Virginia. OUR REVENUE AND SUPPORT GREW BY 52% or $2.3 million--the largest growth in the agency's 124-year history. These additional dollars have greatly enhanced our services to the residents of Eastern Virginia. We expanded Family Life, a service that places people with disabilities not in institutions but with families. Our therapeutic foster care program allowed children with behavior disorders to live in homes instead of in residential facilities. Our in-home counseling service nearly doubled in size, helping more families stay intact and keeping their children out of foster care. We became one of the country's largest service providers to disabled recipients of Social Security and Veterans benefits, helping prevent homelessness and exploitation among this vulnerable population. We expanded our housing and financial counseling services to provide financial education to enlisted Navy personnel. Our prevention programs reached more young families to promote healthy childrearing so our youngest citizens are entering school ready to learn. We were pleased to be a major partner in the Smart Beginnings initiative that promotes early childhood education in our community. We are proud of these many accomplishments, but our leadership is never content to sit on our laurels. This past year, in honor of our upcoming 125th anniversary, we conducted a frank communications audit within our community. The results were eye-opening. For an institution with such a rich and important past, we are virtually unknown in Hampton Roads. Not only are our neighbors unaware of the programs and services we offer, but most hear our name and think we are a government entity. So, ON JANUARY 1, WE WILL CHANGE OUR NAME, breaking loose with a bold new identity that will energize us for our next 125 years of service. We look forward to sharing this exciting announcement with you in the coming months, so stay tuned... Sincerely,

"The demand for war-related psychological treatment is growing faster than the military can handle.

CHILD & FAMILY SERVICES IS WORKING WITH THE HAMPTON V.A. MEDICAL CENTER AND NORFOLK VET CENTER TO COUNSEL RECENT VETERANS OF IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN

and help them learn new skills to readjust to

civilian life. Based on lessons learned after the Vietnam War, the earlier we intervene, the more successful and less costly the intervention will be."
