Robin’s Spotlight March 2021

Hello Friends of FUSION,

Can you believe it is almost Spring? The season represents new beginnings as the sleepy crocus begin to rear their heads and the sun begins to make guest appearances. I want to share with you this month some of FUSION’s new beginnings.

We kicked off our first quarter of 2020 with the development of a new and solid Strategic Plan that is focused on the successful launching of our FUSION Family Center; working on development of a comprehensive Fund Development Plan; and beginning the process of drafting a longer-term Sustainability Plan for the organization. We are grateful for our talented and passionate volunteer Board of Directors members who continue to guide the organization through our exciting recent changes and are wonderful stewards of the FUSION mission.

In February we completed our FUSION Family Center demolition and received approval of our Master Application from the City of Federal Way! Renovations are well on their way and we anticipate the Grand Opening of the center in mid-July. Consider coming to one of our community information sessions at the FUSION Décor Boutique to ask questions and learn more about this critical and impactful program. Join us at 6 p.m. on one of the following dates between now and June: March 26, April 23, May 28, June 25.

Our FUSION Transitional Housing program, which is currently full with 18 families, continues to provide new beginnings for our fragile and vulnerable families who are able to find stability, safety and much-needed guidance in setting and reaching their goals to secure permanent housing and become self-sufficient. We are blessed to have a full-time talented Case Manager on our staff, and our Housing Volunteers provide many hours of service to ensure our family units are safe, clean and ready for our incoming families during a time when they need us the most.

We will keep you in the loop as we continue navigating the exciting and changing waters that are FUSION. And we wish you wonderful new beginnings this Spring as well.

In Service,
Robin O’Grady
FUSION, Executive Director
