Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.
~ Helen Keller
Today, PRI remains dedicated to continuing our mission of providing services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities within the new context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because PRI’s services are government funded through a fee for service reimbursement model, 96% of our revenue was halted when we temporarily suspended services in March. Now, four months later, we are slowly reopening to the extent allowed. First and foremost is respecting the choices of our clients about when they return to services and how they receive those services. We are currently providing some level of service to 75% of our recipients, but because of the service limitations in place, we are generating 70% less revenue. This situation is not a sustainable one.
We launched Partners4Hope, a fundraising campaign, to ensure that PRI will survive this crisis. To be here now and into the future for the 325 clients we serve.
Please partner with us and donate to the Partners4Hope campaign.
As our partner, your support helps us to:
- Protect the health and safety of our clients and employees as restrictions on in-person services are eased
- Deliver virtual services for clients including employment and day services to maintain jobs and reduce isolation
- Cover fixed costs – keep the doors open and the lights on – while working to provide safe, meaningful, and innovative services within the boundaries of current service limitations.
As part of this campaign, we’re bringing to you the voices of PRI: clients, families, employees, donors, and community partners. We want you to hear how this crisis continues to impact our community, especially our most vulnerable citizens.
We need your support today, so we can continue to support individuals with disabilities, now and into the future. We are grateful for our generous community.
