President’s Message

Hello everyone.

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday.

As we gave thanks...and continue to give thanks...we at CFSIC are particularly thankful to all those who support our mission, our goals, and our objectives. We don’t always get the recognition and support we need, particularly from those for whom none of our successes are ever celebrated. From those who offer us notes of thanks, we are grateful, and we want you to know that your thanks keep us going.

This time last year we had not launched. This time last year, as we prepared to launch on January 10, we had no idea what to expect. We had no idea how many of you were out there. We were told on more than one occasion that 5,000 to 7,000 of you would apply on the same day and crash our system. Those who gave us that information did so, bizarrely, as if they were happy about the fact that that might occur. We’re happy that that didn’t happen...but we're even more happy to be thankful for the families we have put back into their homes.

On behalf of my Board of Directors and the entire CFSIC staff, we wish all of you a healthy and happy holiday season.

Thank you.
Steve Werbner
President, CFSIC
