“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” –Maya Angelou
It’s certainly safe to say 2020 was a year like no other.
COVID-19. A global pandemic while caring for thousands of vulnerable children and families. As we began to grasp the meaning and magnitude of this profound challenge, Great Circle worked quickly worked to establish new safety protocols, procedures and plans. There can never be enough kind words to thank every staff member across Missouri and eastern Kansas for their resiliency and courage.
The numbers in this impact report are but a slice of their story in 2020. Woven into these statistics are countless stories of bravery, courage and selflessness as our staff – without skipping a beat – continued to serve families in need.
Through this overview, we’re pleased to provide communities, partners, funders and donors with an understanding of our work and how it ultimately achieves societal change for the better.
It is an honor to share the impact of work in these numbers. We thank all who support us in this journey.
