Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Individuals with developmental disabilities are among the most marginalized members of our society. They often lack full access to education, work, recreation, and opportunities for full involvement in the community. They are also often sequestered away from people without disabilities and thus can't demonstrate their value and develop a wider network of friends. Our goal is to help individuals with developmental disabilities live their life in a manner that fulfills their dreams, and not just the dreams that others have for them.

Charting impact

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

PRRC Strategic Plan 2018-2022

1) Become a compelling community center that serves a diverse population
2) Become a leader in supporting clients who want to work and volunteer
3) Become a leader in health and wellness services to people with disabilities
4) Become a leader in expressive arts programming for people with and without disabilities
5) Respond to trends in changing demographics
6) To be an excellent employer and to develop staff capacity

There are myriad strategies for accomplishing our goals. Here are just a few we've identified:

1) Provide more robust career exploration/vocational training/job placement services
2) Establish micro-enterprises to provide non-traditional work opportunities
3) Expand our health and wellness programming, including access to occupational therapy
4) Increase supports and services for people with autism
5) Launch a performing arts series for the community and our clients
6) Establish ongoing staff development consistent with changing demographics (autism, aging, etc.)
7) Transform appearance of the facility to appeal to the public

Established in 1952, the Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center (PRRC) has a long history of serving individuals with developmental disabilities, always modifying its approach and programming ahead of the curve.

At a time when people with disabilities were typically housed in "developmental centers" throughout the country, PRRC began providing daytime activities for individuals so they could live at home with their families. As the client base grew, so did the organization's capacity to serve them, adding programs and services around workforce development, expressive arts, and an adaptive computer lab. With a mandate coming in 2019 from California's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to dramatically increase community integration for our participants, we developed our strategic plan to do just that.

Led by a deeply experienced CEO, administration, board, program staff, and fundraising team, PRRC has proven its ability to grow and adapt while always maintaining a person-centered approach.

New WORK Ready Program - this new program turns a strong focus on career exploration, training, and placement for individuals interested in working; 8 clients are currently enrolled; we want to develop this program further so that individuals move through, rather than staying indefinitely at the Pomeroy Center. The goal is to be able to have a steady pipeline of participants moving through this program.

New Volunteer Program - this new program brings groups of clients out into the community to provide meal and grocery delivery for Meals on Wheels, the SF Marin Food Bank, and to prepare inventory for the St. Anthony's Thrift Store. 30 clients have participated thus far.

Increased OT Services - two occupational therapists and additional interns now provide 20 hours a week of OT support for our youngest participants, aged 6 to 21. 80 children, teens, and transition age individuals attend our Afterschool Program. 50 additional students attend our summer and vacation camps.

Residential Services - we are opening two homes on Fulton Street in San Francisco to serve 12 adults with developmental disabilities. First home will open in January 2019.

Pomeroy Daycare - we anticipate launching this inclusive program for children through age 5 with and without disabilities in 2022.
