DEAR FRIENDS OF KIDS CO.,
We are thrilled to introduce Kids Co.’s FY22 annual report—GRIT. This past year has been a remarkable journey that can be best described in the definition of GRIT on the annual report cover. This year was filled with determination, resilience, innovation, and teamwork. As we reflect on our accomplishments and challenges, we find the word “GRIT” resonating strongly with our mission and purpose.
While we continued to find our way in a world where COVID-19 stood front and center, this pandemic continuously presented new obstacles and uncertainties. The children and families we serve, our dedicated staff, volunteer Board of Directors, and supporters have shown incredible perseverance. We believe that “GRIT” encapsulates the essence of Kids Co.’s commitment to empowering children to succeed in life and the unwavering support of our community.
This annual report is a testament to our unwavering commitment to nurturing the potential within every child, regardless of their background, and helping them develop the “GRIT” they need to overcome life’s challenges.
As we navigate a changing world, our commitment to children’s well-being remains steadfast. “GRIT” is not just a word; it is the essence of what we stand for. We are grateful for your continued support, which enables us to provide a safe, nurturing, and empowering environment for the children who depend on us.
We invite you to read our annual report to learn more about the remarkable accomplishments and the challenges we have faced in FY22. Together, we can ensure that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to thrive.
Thank you for your unwavering support of Kids Co. and for being part of our journey. Together, we are making a lasting impact on the lives of children, fostering their resilience, and helping them achieve their dreams.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Susan R. Brown
Chair, Kids Co. Board of Directors
