2018 has been a fantastic year. We achieved some ambitious goals and launched new programs, and we couldn’t have done it without the incredible support of our donors and partners.
Our biggest accomplishment for the year is the completion of our All Thrive Campaign. Through this comprehensive campaign, we raised $40.4 million in a little over five years. Thank you again to all our supporters for making this possible!
These funds helped us expand our critical programs to serve more people of all ages with disabilities and special needs across D.C., Maryland and Virginia. However, even though we are at the end of this campaign, it is really only the beginning of the next phase of our work where we aim to ensure that every one of us has the resources necessary to live, learn, work and play in our communities. There is still so much to do and your continued support is needed even more.
We are also especially proud of milestones reached over the course of the year, which have helped 6,500 individuals and their families achieve their potential and live meaning lives in a very personalized way, whether it was receiving speech therapy at one of our Child Development Centers, enjoying a trip to a museum organized by one of our Adult Day Centers, or securing meaningful employment through our Veteran Staffing Network.
All these programs and more are how we serve our community on a day-to-day basis with the overall goal of making profound and positive differences in people’s lives every day. With that said, I am happy to share a more expanded look of what we accomplished in 2018.
Have a Happy Holidays and looking forward to continuing our work in the New Year!
