The snow kept falling well past the first day of spring in Rochester, NY this year, but that didn’t stop SPCC from diving in to some virtual spring cleaning in April. We took a good look at our old website and recognized that we needed to dust off the cobwebs, shake out the rugs, and put a crisp coat of paint on the walls. And, just in time for the Magnolia tree blossoms….. our new, fresh website is ready to be unveiled!
As we looked critically at our old website, we also began to think about SPCC’s online presence in general, and what we could do to better connect with you, our community. We thought about how this could look, and what we wanted it to feel like. We wondered how to best foster our online community. And we kept coming back to one idea:
After 138 years, we have a lot of stories to tell.
And with that, SPCC decided to create this blog to share our stories.
Over the months and years to come, we will share stories of our agency history, what we have learned about children and families, and how our experience and care informs us. We hope to share stories of the beautiful and complex work that SPCC does. We want to share stories of people who are impacted by SPCC, and their fight to find meaning, peace and strength within themselves and in their relationships. We hope to share stories that resonate with all of us: stories of care, compassion, struggle and growth.
Stories that unite us as parents, children, sisters, brothers, grandparents, foster parents, professionals, friends, and community members and remind us of the threads of compassion, curiosity, meaning and growth that connect us all.
We invite you to check back with us often, or better yet- ‘like’ us on Facebook or Twitter so that you can be notified when a new blog post is up. Let us know what stories you would like to hear, and what topics would be of interest to you.
