“From day one, I have believed in the importance of identifying and applying compassionate solutions to big, seemingly intractable social challenges. To me, applying compassionate solutions means approaching people as individuals, not clients and addressing their challenges without judgment, but rather with a sense of dignity, compassion and purpose, knowing solutions do exist. At Family Matters I have fostered a culture of purposeful experimentations to find new and creative ways to do exactly that.”
