It’s conference season in the human services world, which means the Foothold Technology team is on the road again. We’ve packed our ‘house’ and we’re ready to embark on our journey to Seattle, Washington for #NATCON17, site of this year’s National Council conference, and then it’s on to Portland, Oregon for the Association of Children’s Residential Centers (ACRC) annual conference. If you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to look for our team and drop by our temporary home to say hello!
As we head west, we’d also like to share some news that we’re embarking into new territory of a different kind. We’re thrilled to announce our first customer from the state of Washington has joined the Foothold community! Southwest Youth and Family Services (SWYFS), located in the Southwest region of the city of Seattle, provides counseling, education and support to youth and families in the greater Seattle region. The organization was first founded as the Southwest Youth Service Bureau Policy Board in 1979, as part of a citywide program to provide neighborhood-based diversion services in West Seattle and White Center. Over the years, the agency has grown in size and scope, and has developed cutting-edge programs to address the expansive needs of the communities it serves.
We’re all smiles about the expansion of AWARDS into a new state and we think the creative use of these smiles is pretty fantastic too.
