Impact and Programs
AccessAbility was able to impact the people served as well as the community through individually providing employment opportunities with an increasing number of employment partners. The result was increased satisfaction within our client base which leads to a variety of positive outcomes in the community including a broader revenue base, a more solid sense of safety and a larger and more eager talent pool. The hiring of new talent in leadership roles has lent itself to fresh ideas in our programming and expanded our employment partners, furthering our reach in this and other key areas.
Community Employment: 1) Maintain a positive gross margin for services invoiced over wages paid to consumers in enclaves. 2) Increase the average wage paid per enclave consumer from the previous year.
Project Connect/Career & Educational Pathways: 1) Develop and implement a consumer (client) training program that incorporates skills training with higher education. 2) Enroll at least 204 individuals in the Career & Educational Pathways program and maintain a 60% participation rate for those enrolled.
As of this survey, we have fulfilled all of these goals!
