Charting impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The goals of Siffrin is to, first and foremost, maintain health and safety of each person served. Siffrin services assist each person to make decisions, be as independent in their home and community as possible, and to become integrated and accepted in their community.

Siffrin professionals are trained and educated to support people with developmental disabilities. As a human service organization, our number one priority and asset is staff, who each day work with and serve people in our community with disabilities. We continue to develop community relationships that will support our mission.

Siffrin has more than 40 years experience in the field of developmental disabilities. Siffrin has been witness and involved in much change in the field since 1976. Siffrin services have been accredited by CARF International since 1993. With that accreditation in Community Housing and Employment Services, Siffrin is able to partner with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. We have developed a community-based matrix of services to help people assimilate. Siffrin was recently recognized as a Gold Star Standard Provider by the Stark County Board of DD.

Siffrin measures success in financials, numbers of people impacted by service and within the unique successes and accomplishments of people served. Our Internal Quality Assurance program as well as external surveys helps us gauge results.

Each year, Siffrin progresses in terms of service and numbers of people served. In the past ten years, Siffrin has increased people served by 173%. We continue to expand in different areas of the state of Ohio, now serving eight counties. We have experienced a 12% increase in our budget, which reflects program expansion. We anticipate further growth in Employment and Day Services.
