Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Out goal is to enrich the lives of those with impairments through information, education and entertainment.

We utilize the latest and the easiest technology for our listeners to be able to access our recordings.

Since 1963 we have been providing recordings for those in need. We have a broad base of funding, including individuals, foundations and businesses. We keep up to date with the industry through our membership in professional organizations that offer training.

We count the number of volunteer hours, the amount of recording production time and the number of projects completed and in progress. Of course the best way to know if we are making a difference is to talk with our listeners. When we hear how our programs have helped them or changed their life we know we are making progress toward our goals.

We would like to raise awareness about our programs and the positive effects they can have on the lives of those who must read by listening.
