Get ready to dive into the heart of Radius as we kick off our “Meet the Team” blog series!

Over the coming months, we’ll be bringing you closer to the faces, stories, and passions that drive us forward.
Many not-for-profit organizations rely heavily on the generosity of their supporters to fulfill their mission and continue providing valuable services to their communities. One of the most effective ways for individuals to support these organizations is by becoming a monthly donor. Monthly donors make a significant impact on not-for-profits, providing a reliable and steady source of income that allows organizations to plan and budget more effectively. In this blog post, we’ll explore why becoming a monthly donor is so important to organizations like Radius.
Did you know? Radius has a small but mighty team dedicated to conducting both short- and longer-term research. We take pride in the fact that our research informs clinical practice. What does this mean? That what we learn through research helps us know how to best help the children, youth and families that we serve and how we can improve our programs and services. In this issue and in futures issues of Radius e-News, we are going to delve into the important work of the Research department.

#GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need.
