Jim Roberts, CEO/Founder
Change is inevitable, especially in a healthy, thriving organization such as the Family Care Network. 2018/2019 marked another year of “Change” for FCNI, but with greater focus on innovation and technological solutions. One of my favorite quotes is from Management Guru, Peter Drucker, which simply states, “The best way to predict the future is to create it!” This idea has certainly been an axiom, a foundational principle which has driven me throughout the development and management of the Family Care Network.
Of course, the most important “Change” in our organization is the positive change in the lives of the children, youth and families we serve. In 2018/19 we served 2123 clients with a 91% success rate. As this Annual Report so clearly presents, this is real positive change measured by carefully selected metrics and indicators fully supported within or required by our industry. Again, this is a reflection of the extensive “Network” of staff, volunteers, community partners and donors working together to “enhance the wellbeing of children and families!”
“Engineering Change” is a thoughtful, proactive process with the goal of developing effective and efficient operations to help FCNI fulfill its mission; ultimately achieving better outcomes for the children, youth and families we serve. Innovation is the heart of Engineering Change. Innovation involves introducing something new or different in terms of revising, refining or improving an existing practice, or creating novel ideas, strategies or new solutions.

Since our inception, the Family Care Network has received an annual audit or review. For the past 30 years, Glenn Burdette, an independent auditing firm, has audited the financial position and the related statements of activities in unrestricted net assets, functional expenses and cash flows of the agency. Government standards require that auditors plan and perform these audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatements. For each of the years that the Family Care Network has been audited by Glenn Burdette, we have received an unqualified opinion on our financial statements, meaning that the independent auditing firm believes the financial statements present fairly in all material respects, the financial position, the changes in net assets and the cash flows of the agency.
