Jim Roberts, CEO/Founder
Let's face it: life is messy. We make great plans, are moving forward right on schedule making remarkable progress, excited about the future and then boom – everything seems to explode! This happens to all of us and the Family Care Network is no exception. The operative question remains: what is our capacity to rise to the occasion and meet the day-to-day challenges head on, undaunted and without complaint? In essence, can we persevere? Well, welcome to our 2019/2020 Fiscal Year!
Publisher and author B.C. Forbes, put it this way, “History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their setbacks and challenges.” I like this sentiment because it embraces the spirit, tenacity, attitude, and drive of the Family Care Network: I believe we are the embodiment of “Undaunted Perseverance.”
Fiscal year 2019/20 started out on a roll. We jumped out of the starting gate already ahead, having come off a financially solid prior fiscal year. Referral rates were good, contracts were in place and we had probably one of the most stable workforces we have ever experienced. Esprit de corps and morale were high and we had a very aggressive, well thought through Strategic Plan in place. And then–the Covid-19, pandemic happened!

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.
