In their own words
A year ago I was asked to describe my daily intent using one word. I selected the word CHANCE because I believe it has been applicable to my role as a professional since I began my career. Every day that I am working in this field I have a chance to make a difference with an individual and/or family. Mahatma Gandhi once said “It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” I recognize that if I wish to see results in the individuals that I serve and those that reside in our community I must seize the chances I have been given to take action.
