As the recently appointed Executive Director of Hull Services, I am pleased to present the 2018 Hull Services Annual Report.
I know you’ll want to read it from front cover to back. Titled, [arti] FACTS of My Life, this is the account of an adult who has experienced a traumatic and tumultuous childhood, yet his life does not transpire as many would surmise.
At the core of this story are memories that surround a modest collection of objects this individual has kept since childhood. In many ways these serve as his life’s artifacts and elicit a range of emotions, from deep sorrow to joy.
The annual report takes this unique form so that we can provide our supporters a glimpse into the circumstances confronted by many of the children and youth we encounter.
While reading this story and reflecting on the photographs, please keep in mind the thousands of children and families Hull Services supports on an annual basis (with your assistance) so they too can find a path to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives.
It reminds us that early trauma does not define the trajectory of an entire life, and that appropriate intervention can support better outcomes.
Executive Director, Hull Services
