When analyzing Q1 data for 2023, it is important to remember what our outlook was just last year. Below is a 2022 data snapshot. In 2022, TFC served 97,482 children and families. The story of the 2022 data clearly illustrates the families and early educators we serve are navigating the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. Families are seeking child care back at pre-pandemic levels. While early childhood staffing remains an ongoing challenge, early educators are seeking a returned focus to improving quality as demonstrated by TFC’s increase in professional development engagements for early educators in 2022 – this was higher than ever before. In the early childhood setting, mental health support increased, as our mental health experts are once again able to enter the classroom and offer play therapy and social-emotional supports to our youngest clients. However, due to mental health staffing shortages across the sector, outpatient mental health clients served numbers are not yet back to pre-pandemic levels.
*To create the agency dashboard, a sampling of our total agency outcomes are chosen that are evidence-based and mission-centric. Additionally, clients often only are assessed against outcomes at the end of services if they meet specific criteria.
