Partnership Resources Theory of Change
Partnership Resources’ vision is that every person with disabilities thrives in an inclusive community.
Through the Theory of Change process, members of the PRI team worked together to build this common vision. With the help of Aurora Consulting, we discussed the work we do, the impact we have, and the change our work intends to achieve. Together, we formed our Theory of Change including a common language and a visual representation that communicates our vision and impact:
People with disabilities thrive in inclusive communities.
PRI believes each person can contribute their unique gifts to the community.
The community is knowledgeable about the contributions of people with disabilities and the barriers that they face in community life.
The community includes people with disabilities in opportunities for employment, connection, and expression.
The community shapes opportunities for people with disabilities to learn, work, and contribute.
PRI creates partnerships between people with disabilities and the community.
People with disabilities explore their goals and interests.
VOICE & CHOICE
People with disabilities make informed choices about how they participate in the community.
People with disabilities have the skills they need to achieve their goals.
PRI provides individualized support and resources so people with disabilities can increase their independence.
At Partnership Resources, Inc. (PRI) each unique person we serve is at the center of our work. Through individualized planning and support, we help each person learn, grow, advocate, and increase their independence in community life. This work is key to our mission of creating partnerships between people with disabilities and the community.
In our programs, each person explores their interests and goals, develops skills that will help them along the way, discovers their voices, and makes choices about how they want to participate in the community. PRI’s programming includes vocational exploration, functional skill development, community involvement, self-advocacy, and opportunities for creative expression.
Our vision is that every person with disabilities thrives in an inclusive community. Together with our community partners, we raise awareness, help shape opportunities, and ensure that people with disabilities have abundant choices within community life.
