I'm heartened by the progress we've made together in empowering individuals with disabilities.
Our approach has been about serving the whole person, addressing key social determinants of health
including stable housing, meaningful employment, and robust community support. This holistic focus on
health and well-being reects our commitment to the long-term success and stability of those we serve.
Thanks to your partnership, we've adapted to changes by strengthening our nancial foundation, enriching
our service portfolio, and enhancing our operational eciency. Our new headquarters and expanded
residential services are milestones of our growth.
Your contributions to our advocacy eorts have helped us champion a more inclusive and accessible world.
Together, we've made strides in policy inuence and community engagement.
Looking ahead, with your continued support and engagement, we are excited to face new challenges,
break down barriers, and further enrich the lives of those we serve.
Thank you for being an essential part of our extraordinary journey.
Warmly,
Brian Fitzgerald
