Honour The Past, Celebrate The Present, Embrace The Future Celebrating 50 Years Of Service To The Community

By Anglican Family Care | Posted: Tuesday November 29, 2022

Since our humble beginnings in 1970, Anglican Family Care has delivered a range of restorative, social and therapeutic services in Otago to tamariki and their whānau who are facing difficulties.

While there have been many changes and challenges since then, we remain firmly focused on our role in giving people hope that their futures can be better.

50 years is a remarkable achievement for any organisation, and we are thrilled to be celebrating our anniversary in person following a challenging season.

Thank you for helping us celebrate our 50th anniversary with a Celebration Dinner at Selwyn College, on Saturday November 26, featuring keynote speaker Nigel Latta.

As our General Manager was recently quoted in the Otago Daily Times newspaper: ‘‘Our Board of Trustees and management team are really looking forward to the opportunity of gathering in good company and reflecting on a legacy to date of care and excellence,’’ We’re all keenly aware the job isn’t done yet, but 50 years is certainly worthy of celebrating.’’

There are ‘‘not enough words’’ to thank the many sponsors, supporters, donors, philanthropic organisations, and others who continue to support the work of Anglican Family Care.

‘‘The single most important thing to me is that Anglican Family Care is available to support our community for as long as there is a need for us to do so. We remain committed, Board and staff alike, to a vision of strong, connected and thriving whānau and tamariki, whatever challenges the future brings.’’
