We look back on 2010 with a great deal of pride and gratitude. Pride for increasing the number of individuals we have supported to take part in community activities of their choosing to over 200, and gratitude for the powerful response from over 50 organizations in the community to our Initiative. The experiences of individuals have affirmed the validity of our mission in many ways. The leadership that other organizations are taking to include children and adults with disabilities is inspiring. The support we receive from our primary funding body, Kalamazoo Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, is a source of great encouragement.
Our hopes and expectations for 2011 are very high. We see the commitments to our mission increasing in both depth and breadth throughout the community of Kalamazoo and beyond.
Call on us, and join us in this movement.
