Last year, to commemorate our 150th anniversary, we paid tribute to our past Presidents, highlighting the key leadership roles they played in securing the future of our community.
This year we decided to mark the end of our 150th year by recognizing the multitude of partnerships that we have forged throughout the years, relationships that have enabled us to accomplish so much together to change people’s lives.
At Ometz we recognize the strength of partnerships; we acknowledge that our agency, on its own, cannot be everything to everyone. To serve our clients most effectively and meaningfully, we must continuously forge links with others. We have worked hard at relationship-building, forming alliances and establishing new collaborations.
We have developed significant partnerships with volunteers, individual donors, government agencies, private foundations, public and private institutions and other community agencies. And we have had an impact on thousands of lives!
We are proud of our longstanding collaborations with a number of partners who continue to exhibit their ongoing trust in us. This past year, we are pleased to have attracted the following new partnerships:
• La Fondation Jasmin Roy – with whom we developed a toolkit for schools and educators to address the escalating problem of bullying.
• L’Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) – who funded the development and implementation of our comprehensive financial literacy program, “Money Matters.”
• The Association of Jewish Family & Child Agencies and the International Association of Jewish Vocational Services – we are a member of both associations and we hosted their joint conference in Montreal this past spring.
• The Silhouettes® – a troupe of young performers, aged 6 -22, who danced their way into our hearts at our annual gala, and helped us raise $385,000 for programs for our young people at risk. Many of the troupe’s members have struggled with physical, mental and other life challenges, and their message of hope and inspiration is beautifully connected with Ometz’s daily mission. In a sense, it’s youth helping youth. We believe that we should all be proud of the work that we have accomplished together. We want to express our sincere gratitude for your partnership with us in what has been to date a great adventure.
