“What does it mean for NeighborLink to be a neighbor?” That question sits heavy on our hearts at NeighborLink, and is a regular topic of discussion as we grow, make strategic decisions, and spend time listening to the neighbors we are serving.
After reflecting on our activities over the past fiscal year, “Digging Deeper” felt like the most appropriate explanation of all the core activities we focused on. We are digging into our organization so we know how to build a strong foundation for future growth. We want to be the healthiest and strongest organization possible so we can expand to serve in a meaningful way. We dug into how we are structured as an organization, how we should view ourselves as a neighbor, how to mobilize and launch more volunteers, how to best understand neighborhoods and neighbors, how to stay true to our core calling as connectors. While digging deeper internally, we also dug into more projects than ever before and we have honed our craft of sharing the stories we hear at projects.
It is important for us to share lessons learned, document all the Lord's blessings, and share the stories of our volunteers in a printed report as a testament to the Lord's work through NeighborLink. We desire to provide evidence that the resources our donors and volunteers are investing in our organization are making an impact for neighbors in need. Sharing the story is important to us and an annual report is a great tool to do so. We look forward to making this a regular rhythm at NeighborLink for years to come.
