To all of our partners and stakeholders,
2020 is a year that will spark conversation for the rest of our lives and careers. ARCHS is proud of each one of you for adapting to our world going virtual in March, and again recently, with a spike in COVID-19 cases.
This year's holiday video showcases the history ARCHS and its partners have made and what we have to look forward to in 2021. The video's dialogue is inspired by the classic holiday poem T'was the Night Before Christmas.
All of us were met with challenges in 2020, but the experience allowed us all to discover better ways to serve resource-deprived children and families. A virtual world removed a few barriers, such as transportation for adults who are seeking trauma-informed care. A virtual world also allowed educators to advocate for neighborhoods in need of high-speed internet and access to technology.
ARCHS looks forward to continue providing expertise, resources, and funding to partners serving early childhood, school age, and family support initiatives.
ARCHS will be closed on December 24-25th and December 31-January 1st to observe the holidays. We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and a prosperous New Year!

ARCHS Chief Executive Officer
