Charting impact

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

Our goal as an organization is to empower people with disabilities to discover and achieve their own "I CAN" statement. Specifically, we would are striving to expand our current programs and add new daytime ones that would provide greater opportunity for clients to socialize and learn.

Our organization's strategy is to build and offer programs that fit the needs of the entire family. Fiscally, elements of our organization are working towards self-sustainability through government support, such as our employment and day programs. Recreational programs are developed and funded through the support of donors and grants, with the goal of keeping any event fees as minimal as possible.

We have a very strong base of volunteer support, and building programs to can take advantage of the social opportunities this provides is key. In addition, our organization has existed for more than 40 years, and our directors have been involved for more than 20 years. We have experience working with people with disabilities, and having a strong volunteer base to train and involve is an incredible strength.

Our organization currently offers individualized job placement services, a life skills day program, bimonthly day trips, and three annual camps. In doing so we have more than 250 people reciebing services, inclusing more than thirty employed at real jobs that pay real wages.
