Dear Friends,

Building on the momentum generated from our recent relocations, strong community partnerships and exciting service outcomes, ECF looks forward to the New Year with tremendous enthusiasm and promise.

We will begin our year by launching our triennial strategic planning process, establishing the actions we will prioritize and the objectives we will meet to lead innovative service delivery for the years to come. Among the myriad areas of focus in 2017 will be helping those who want to work to access the support required to secure employment.

Towards this goal, the PAR West and Supported Employment programs have been redesigned as part of our Exceptional Works programs, an exciting, comprehensive continuum of work and training options for participants. We have also implemented a vocational training curriculum for our students attending our Kayne Eras School, where internships and work training is offered with post graduation employment at our Exceptional Works operation. By creating more diverse and specialized training opportunities for participants of all ages and with a variety of abilities, “pathways to employment” emerge which lead to paychecks, increased independence, community engagement, and a stronger tomorrow.

In the months ahead, we will share the many ways you may join us to help shape an exceptional future for the people and communities we serve.

Happy New Year – Indeed!
