Thank you for your incredible support of Partnership Resources, Inc. during this past year!
Armed with the strength of our clients, partners, and supporters like you, PRI launched the We Are Strong, We Belong! campaign at the beginning of the year to support our mission of creating partnerships between people with disabilities and the community. While rebuilding during the pandemic, your investment in PRI made us stronger, together.
Throughout 2021, you witnessed incredible stories of strength and success from our PRI community. Moments and stories that illustrate discovery, skill-building, and choice. With essential services from PRI, doors were opened for individuals with disabilities to pursue and achieve dreams.
With your ongoing support during the past year:
- PRI is growing stronger, overcoming the impacts of the pandemic, while rebuilding opportunities to support an inclusive community
- 80 clients are back to work in the community where they are part of a team, increasing their independence, and enjoying the satisfaction of a paycheck
- 220 clients are exploring their goals and interests, developing skills that will help them along the way, and making choices about how they want to participate in the community, with the support of in-person and virtual services
- Our dedicated employees continue to welcome new team members, growing our staff by over 40%
However, there is much more yet to accomplish and as we prepare for the work ahead, we are asking you to consider PRI in your year-end giving.
Yes, clients have returned to in-person services, but sadly we are not able to welcome everyone back yet. Over 30% are waiting to return, and PRI’s waitlist is full. An industry workforce shortage has challenged growth and rebuilding, but we are determined to overcome this. We are working each day to hire new employees and retain our valued employees, all while rebuilding our capacity to serve individuals. Your support today strengthens PRI’s ability to reach everyone and ensures that every individual can thrive in an inclusive community tomorrow.
On behalf of all of us at PRI, thank you for considering us in your year-end giving. Best wishes for a safe, healthy, and joyful holiday season.
