Educational Workshops, Support Groups & Recognition Programs

Family Achievement Foundation offers educational workshops, support groups, recognition programs and other targeted resources for parents. Workshops cover a variety of topics for parents to help their children with physical and mental disabilities. Support groups bring parents together to share best practices and hear from professionals on how to assist their children while staying mentally and physically healthy as caregivers. Recognition programs include the Journey Award which is presented to multiple parents quarterly who overcome challenges and are an inspiration to others in raising their children. The Award includes a hand-crafted glass heart, certificate with the nomination language, and $500 cash. In addition, the Comfort Club features a hand-made blanket and $50 bill for any parents to be given on the spot if they are facing a challenge or hardship. Parents can use the money as they wish - for a food, medicine, clothing, etc. - to provide immediate comfort and support.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Treasurer & Co-Founder

Thomas Hoel

Tom is an experienced CEO with a demonstrated history of working in the medical practice industry. He was on a successful managerial track with Andersen (Windows & Doors) Corporation when his son Anthony was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at age 4. That led Tom to establish Family Achievement Center which provides occupational, physical and speech therapy at clinics in Bloomington & Woodbury, MN. Tom's son Anthony was the inspiration for the clinical team and responded well to therapy before passing at the age of 22 in 2011. Tom and his wife Sarah Mason's parenting challenges in raising children with physical and mental disabilities led them to begin the Family Achievement Foundation in 2019 to help mothers and fathers who face difficulties daily in their parenting journey. Tom and Sarah have a vision to expand the Foundation's support services on a national and international basis. Funding is key to provide critical resources to parents.
