How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Community Link's goal is to provide individuals with developmental disabilities with supports to aid in building a quality, inclusive life in which they are recognized as contributing citizens in their community. We also created an endowment to broaden Community Link’s opportunities for legacy donations, increase the potential for corporate and large donor contributions and provide additional giving options to donors.

Community Link works with each participant on an individualized personal plan that includes their idea of how they want to live, where they want live, what type of work they want to do, etc. We also provide those ongoing supports that are needed for daily living and growth. Community Link advocates for rights of persons with developmental disabilities and teaches them to advocate for themselves.

Community Link's board, planning and development committees oversee and guide our organization to make sure that we have the best strategies in place. We also have a 3-year strategic plan developed for the organization. Community Link has an experienced and trained staff to make sure that our strategies for each participant, as well as the organization as a whole, are accompanied. Community Link is accredited by CARF--the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Community Link will know that we're making progress in a variety of ways: 1) data collected for our annual Outcome Measurement System (OMS); 2) success stories from staff; 3) participant/family feedback; 4) donations to our endowment.

Community Link's satisfaction surveys are nearly always good or excellent. Our person-centered culture has made great progress and has improved interactions between staff and participants. Our community inclusion activities have increased for our participants as well. Community Link designated a portion of its 2017 annual appeal to our endowment fund. A portion of the 2018 annual appeal will also be designated to the endowment fund. Information was also included in the 2018 annual report.
