3 A Le er from Jane s Desk... Dear Friends of Interfaith, We are celebra ng our 20 th Anniversary of Neighbors Helping Neighbors! The blessings keep flowing and I grow in gra tude for the many miracles that affirm and strengthen our mission each day. This past year of growth has exceeded all others. Both our care receivers and volunteers have increased by 22% and our services hours by 27%. How awesome is that! The impact of those living the mission is phenomenal. Truly we are a good neighbor and the goodness from within flows forth to create a more beau ful and caring community. Our care receivers know that someone truly cares about them and our volunteers experience the joy of purpose and fulfillment. To love and be loved is a daily happening at Interfaith. I become awestruck by the privilege to serve as execu ve director. Knowing someone s life has renewed meaning, working fas diously with an unbelievably dedicated staff and board of trustees, receiving encouragement and support at the me you need it most, being li ed in spirit and joy by a note of gra tude, partnering with agencies for resources to cover what we do not do, and knowing that I am doing His holy work gives me great peace of mind and heart. Does it get any be er than this? Each ar cle in our newsle er highlights the magnitude of grace and love that touches lives with hope, healing, empowerment and joy. Find your reading glasses, sit in your most comfortable chair, pour a tall glass of iced tea and visit with your Interfaith family. As always, I thank you for your faithful support of our mission and beseech you to remember us in prayer, volunteer me, referral and monetary contribu on. No gi is too small and all gi s are deeply and gratefully accepted.

As a grantee, the Princeton Area Community Founda on engaged a professional consul ng firm to help ICGMC and other grantees understand our needs as nonprofit partners, and iden fy the exper se and resources needed to best support our future growth. As part of the process, we par cipated in the Core Capacity Assessment Tool (CCAT) a 146-ques on survey taken by our Board and management. The ques onnaire was designed to offer a snapshot of our ability to manage the processes and systems that characterize a high-performing organiza on. Following the assessment, ICGMC received a confiden al, individualized report tying our scores to a life-cycle analysis. We also had an opportunity to speak with a consultant by phone for help interpre ng our results. In March, we met with other organiza ons that completed the CCAT to discuss common issues and consider next steps. The CCAT allowed us to spend me addressing report recommenda ons and assessing our progress, including a full presenta on of results and recommenda ons which will be presented to the ICGMC Board of Directors in June. Thank you, PACF!
