A Word from the President of the Board and the Director General
Saint Brigid's - Jeffery Hale (SBJH) progressed greatly in many areas throughout 2011-2012. We can be proud of our success!
Our relatively small establishment has a special strength: the depth of the commitment of our staff and leadership. This asset permits us surprising success despite serious constraints in resources.
We believe, as leaders of the institution, that it is important to highlight the key to our success: the strong commitment of everyone–from the Board, to the staff, and to the management team, as well as the clients and volunteers–in a common project aimed at ensuring the best interests of users.
As well, there is the desire to do things well and to always improve. To this end, we continue our constant quest for ways to do things our unique way: simply but effectively and efficiently.
We also find strength in a relationship of collaboration with the community and our ambition to be recognized as exemplary partner. The desire to build together rather than each individually contributes to the feeling of being separate yet committed to each other’s success.
Nevertheless, we regret that the fact that a lack of financial resources continues to undermine the ability of our institution to meet all of its obligations. We continue to hope, however, that recent initiatives to review the funding of institutions will improve the situation.
For more information about our organization, please consult our Annual Report to the Community, or the full Annual Management Report (in French only) as submitted to Québec's Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux. We trust that these reports will give you a better overview of our mission, services and strategic orientations.
