A Message From the President and CEO

“Impact is only limited by imagination and commitment.”

At Great Circle, we never underestimate the difference that can be made in any life we touch. We know that impact made today has a powerful rippling effect on tomorrow. That’s an incredible responsibility, and one to which we’re deeply committed.

But we also know that no life exists in a vacuum. Every life we touch inevitably touches countless others, weaving together the fabric of our society. As we work to strengthen the lives of the children and families we serve, we must also strengthen the communities around them. We never lose sight of this at Great Circle and are working harder than ever to be the best community partner we can be.

The data points in this report are simply summaries of thousands of these life stories. Stories of love, struggle and redemption. Of courage in the face of adversity and the resilience to reclaim bright futures. Just as data helps us evaluate our effectiveness and impact, it also sparks our imagination, deepens our commitment to family strength, and renews our optimism for building better communities and a healthier society.


Vincent D. Hillyer, ACSW, LCSW, BCD
