Something Good is Happening!

At The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF), we have learned that when public and private experiences come together, something great happens. We have discovered together how important it is to honor the truth of who we really are, along with our vulnerability. The bottom line for NCCF is not all of the activities of the past year, but rather, is found in all of the good that has emerged from our acts of humanity. In a society that prioritizes outcomes and metrics, good is not always measurable, but is always happening. Like the wind – we cannot see it, yet we experience it. I have found that the good things need to be made clearer. Good things are often things we cannot see.

At NCCF, we cultivate an excitement about positive change. It brings out the essence of our humanity. If our humanity is not alive, bold, authentic, and public, then it is hidden in the dark where we grieve, and where we lose our sense of value and self-worth. Our truth can be lost to any of us. Our century old mission is to help our community make its humanity extraordinarily public. We thank you for all of the past support you have provided to children, youth and families who struggle with poverty, homelessness, abuse and neglect, disabilities, discrimination and isolation, in this affluent region of the world.

We invite you to help us all move through the current season to a better place. We call for you to celebrate who we all are, to fight the notion that some are more deserving than others, to affirm how wonderfully humans are made. We urgently ask you to join us. To be HUMAN, to be the wind for others with such desperate need.

Like the wind, your contribution will ensure that the good is real, is bold, and is public.
