It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces that Nicci Stein has left her position as the Executive Director of The Teresa Group to pursue other opportunities. 

The Teresa Group would like to thank Ms. Stein for her leadership, service and dedication with The Teresa Group over the past 7 years and wish her all the best as she moves forward. Ms. Stein’s leadership has been instrumental in building The Teresa Group’s reputation, nationally and internationally, while also maintaining and developing our core services of providing support and guidance to our clients. 

The Teresa Group is excited to be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and moving forward with a new chapter in its history that works to serve, support, and empower families affected by HIV and AIDS. 

Since 1990, The Teresa Group has evolved from providing support to a handful of children and families to an organization with a dedicated team of professional staff providing a broad range of compassionate frontline services to hundreds of local children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. 

The Teresa Group plans to continue this by focusing its efforts and resources where they can have the greatest impact and provide leadership through example, information, education and innovation. 

We are excited to be seeking a new Executive Director with talent and enthusiasm to lead our organization and to provide capable and committed leadership to the well being of children affected by HIV and their families. 

Thank you, 

Marcel Watier
The Teresa Group Board of Directors

The Teresa Group Achieves Accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standard Program

May 31st 2016 – The Teresa Group today announces that it has been accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program. With this achievement, we join a growing community of more than 175 organizations dedicated to operational excellence.

The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and nonprofits designed to strengthen practices in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to accountability, transparency and good governance” says Board President, Marcel Watier.

“It’s no small feat for an organization to earn Standards Program accreditation,” says Bruce MacDonald, President and CEO of Imagine Canada. “It’s a rigorous, peer-reviewed process that is meant to build public trust and confidence in the charitable sector. These organizations take accountability and operational transparency very seriously. We’re glad to have them on board.”

Investment in Donor Trust

The goals of Imagine Canada’s Standards Program are to increase the transparency of charities and nonprofits, and to strengthen public confidence in individual organizations and the sector as a whole. Trust is the foundation for what matters to us, our stakeholders and those who support us. Accredited organizations invest in what matters: trust.

Transparent, peer-review process

Our policies and procedures in the five areas of compliance were evaluated by a group of volunteers from the sector, and were found to be compliant with the Standards Program.

“As a small organization, rooted in the community, we recognize how important it is to be accountable not only to our donors but also to the children and families we work with and the partners who share our vision and mission” says Executive Director, Nicci Stein.
