Making an Impact
Most of us have pretty intense work lives. Heads down, we move from one project or issue to the next, checking off boxes on our to-do lists. We know we’re busy and exhausted but we can’t always identify exactly what it is that’s been accomplished or impactful our work has been.
It’s important to take a step back once in a while to look at the big picture.
We at the Eden Alternative Home Office took a step back recently. We gathered data from 2018 to see just how many people and organizations we impacted. For me, being less than a year into my tenure as CEO, it was humbling and exciting to realize that through our Eden Home Office Team, International Coordinators, Educators, Mentors and Path to Mastery Guides, in one year, we’ve impacted well over 100,000 people in sixteen countries. Organizations around the world are implementing a new approach to supporting Elders. They’re changing lives. That’s worth a celebration!
We hope you enjoy this snapshot of 2018 and take a minute to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together. And if you haven’t taken a step back to evaluate the impact of your own organizations, I recommend that you do. I think you’ll be amazed at what you find.
