Leading with Compassion and Generosity in Uncertain Times

Winston Churchill once said, "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."  I can't tell you how often I thought of that quote in the past three months.  A new President always make changes in the nation's priorities and plans, in response to the wishes of those who elected him or her.  Yet, the recent drama played out among the three branches of government (Executive, Judicial, and Legislative) has been a perplexing civics lesson for all of us.  Several have recently asked me, "How will President Trump impact the work of the Headington Institute?"  It's too early to know for sure.  However, proposed funding cuts for humanitarian aid at home and abroad will likely leave less money available for staff-care and support.  So, we anticipate funding cuts from our clients.  Rising hostility against Americans will make our frequent international travel more difficult and risky.  This environment is already making our work more challenging and stressful.  

Nonetheless, we are certain that the need for our services will continue to grow, as the frequency and severity of domestic and international disasters increase.  We remain fully committed to providing psychological care for international aid workers and domestic emergency responders.  So, we're leaning into this increasingly challenging time, determined to grow in response.  In fact, we're currently doing a feasibility study to assess our capacity to double our impact, programs, and budget in the next 3 to 5 years.  We believe this is an opportunity for the Headington Institute to lead the way by providing services and resources characterized by compassion, charity, and competence.  Please let me know if you'd like to join us in helping more people during these months and years ahead.  Thanks for your interest and support. 

 ~Jim
