“Tri-Lakes Cares’ decision to measure our results and make those results public is not based on rating systems of watchdog organizations. We do this because we believe it is critical to the long-term growth of our organization and especially important to the individuals and families that we serve. For TLC it is important that we know if our efforts are effective; if they are not, it’s time to develop a new approach.”

–Haley Chapin, Executive Director of Tri-Lakes Cares
