December Message from the CEO
Dear Friends of KYC,
As the final weeks of 2017 approach and we prepare for the new year, the energy of the holidays surges with new excitement and anticipation. Celebrations abound and our calendars crowd with upcoming activities before the ringing in of 2018. As I step into our offices, the energy is unmistakable. The joy is palpable. The spirit of the season is alive and well at KYC.
For many in our community, that holiday happiness comes from the engagement, support, and dedication of our staff and volunteers. From hot lunches delivered to homebound seniors to gifts given through our Adopt a Family program, the generosity of many ensures that everyone’s season is warm and bright. Thank you for being a part of this holiday cheer.
This year has been filled with growth and change. We set ambitious goals to maximize our productivity, encourage innovation, and always provide quality care. The upcoming year is no different. KYC is and will be the premiere provider of behavioral health and older adult services in Elk Grove and Schaumburg Township. We want to expand our services and continually grow to meet the needs of our community. But to do this, we’ll need your help. We need your continued support, advocacy, and giving. Together, we can make 2018 our best yet. Our clients depend on our best. They need us. We need you.
So as we close this year and start the next, please take a moment to consider how you can help us change lives for the better. Volunteer. Donate. Share our message. You have our commitment that we’ll work harder than ever before to provide care with compassion, dignity, and respect. Our clients deserve our best.
From my family to yours, may the new year bring the very best to you and yours.
Susan E. Cowen
President & Chief Executive Officer
