Penn-Mar: Focused on the Future Annual Report 2021

A Letter from Our CEO


Dear Friends,

 

In many ways, 2021 was one of the most significant and noteworthy years in Penn-Mar Human Services’ history. Despite yet another twelve months of uncertainty and challenges brought on by the pandemic, our organization underwent some substantial changes.

 

We marked our 40th anniversary by unveiling a new website, logo, branding, and the bold new tagline Live Courageously, words that truly encompass our philosophy. We also welcomed guests to our 29th annual Gala in June, held outdoors as well as online for the first time. The event was a major success and illustrates the incredible and undying generosity of our loyal sponsors and community. And perhaps most importantly, we made the deliberate decision to increase the starting hourly wage of our fantastic Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) to $15.50 per hour, a significantly higher entry-level wage compared to the national average for DSP compensation.

 

But while any one of those accomplishments would be cause for major celebration even in a normal year, for us and every member of our team, success is measured by answering a simple question: did we do everything we could to improve the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities?

 

Every day at Penn-Mar, we reflect on the work we’re doing, and the innovations being created, taking a hard look at whether the plans and processes put in place are serving our community in the best way possible. Are people benefiting from our work? What are we doing tomorrow? And most importantly, how can we help even more people? Only by asking these introspective questions on a consistent basis can we really improve upon our mission.

 

This constant self-reflection is one reason why when we evaluate this past year, we are not focused on what we were able to accomplish in the face of the pandemic, but what the pandemic prevented us from accomplishing. Due to health and safety protocols and workforce challenges, some individuals and their families were left without the opportunities we may otherwise be able to offer. And though we are in a much better place than in 2020, we’re still nowhere near pre-pandemic levels in terms of operations and programming. We are actively doing everything we can to safely and strategically return to that level of support.

 

But the support is only possible because of the team here at Penn-Mar, a group of people we are honored to call colleagues and friends. Working for Penn-Mar is not a job or career, but a calling that attracts a very special kind of person who values compassion and care for others above all else. Without the DSPs and other essential team members on our staff, nothing we do would be possible.

 

So, while it would be easy to reflect on 2021 and consider it a “success,” we look at the past year as a chance to learn and gain insight into how we can make 2022 even better. Each day this year will bring with it a new opportunity to do more, give more, help more, and to always live courageously.

Just One Conversation

 

Susannah Gillespie, Fitness Manager at the York JCC, began her relationship with Penn-Mar after a conversation with Rita Arnett. At the time, Rita was a Residential Supervisor who was looking for personal training for Bobbi and Lesha, two ladies she supported, who wanted to focus on their health and fitness goals.

 

Lesha and Bobbi couldn’t have landed a better trainer than Susannah, whose passionate belief that fitness is for everyone is obvious to anyone who meets her. As Susannah learned more about the demands placed on DSPs and the challenges of the profession, she was further inspired to design sessions for organizations like Penn-Mar, for both DSPs and the people they support, enabling them to workout in either their homes or workplaces.

 

Susannah took just one conversation and used it as a catalyst to find new and innovative ways to support people with disabilities, their Direct Support Professionals, and our community.

 

Just One Person

 

Over this past year, Residential Supervisor Marlo Saunders has met challenge after challenge head-on.

 

When the home she supports was affected by COVID, she did what her Program Manager Alyssa Albright says she always does, “Marlo rolled up her sleeves and got to work. She adapted to the COVID schedule with no complaint and ensured that the people she supports were kept safe and healthy in what could have been a very stressful time.”

 

Though Marlo is just one person, her above-and-beyond actions impacted dozens of lives, including those of the people she supports, their loved ones, and her colleagues. Her teamwork, dedication, and most importantly, heart for others all contribute to her immeasurable impact.

Just One Connection

 

Brian Honeychuck, a 23-year-old gentleman with Down syndrome, had a banner year. Thanks to just one connection, over the summer Brian landed a job at Sheetz, the family-owned convenience store chain. Penn-Mar’s Career Counselor Tricia Zeltwanger was approached by a retired human services professional, Stephen Martynuska. Stephen was hired as a consultant by Sheetz to create an initiative to help the company enhance its hiring of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across their 600-plus stores.

 

Brian’s supervisor, Lisa Reichow, was the first in York to participate in the pilot program. “I was so grateful to be a test for this program. My nephew had gone to Penn-Mar, so it means a lot to me.”

 

It means a lot to Brian, too, who says, “Working at Sheetz is like a family.” Thanks to just one connection, not only does Brian’s career path look bright, but so do the careers of many other future Sheetz employees with disabilities.

Just One Idea

 

Every year, David Stang makes the trek up from Tennessee to Maryland. He camps out for a weekend in the Maryland Line Volunteer Fire Department parking lot, where he sells out of one-of-a-kind Jack Daniels woodworked products, with all proceeds going to Penn-Mar. What’s become a widely anticipated annual event started with just one idea several years ago.

 

David’s brother Murray was supported by Penn-Mar for 13 years before he sadly passed away in 2018. One of the ways David honors Murray’s memory is through this unique fundraiser. Upon David’s retirement from Jack Daniels, he had an idea . . . what if he repurposed used Jack Daniels whiskey barrels and sold them as a fundraiser? After receiving permission from his former employer, David got to work, raising over $30,000 and counting for Penn-Mar.

 

Penn-Mar has given my brother opportunities that we could never have provided for him on our own. He has friends, enjoys outings in the communities, has been on island cruises, and from many years of participating in the Day Program, has developed a love for painting and creating artwork. His life at Penn-Mar has been so enriching. When he visits with us, he always tells us when he is ready to go ‘home.’ His home at Penn-Mar. Thank you Penn-Mar for giving our family peace of mind, knowing that our brother is so well cared for.

Penn-Mar Foundation

Throughout the past two years, the same questions have continued to take center stage: Are we safe? When will we get back to normal? Is the pandemic coming to an end? Though the answers continue to elude us, we have gained insight into how we can carefully adapt to the constant uncertainty and change. In another year of a global pandemic that has uprooted every facet of our lives, Penn-Mar has been able to stay true to our mission and accomplish some wonderful goals.

 

You, and your unwavering support, have made this possible.

 

As we approached 2021, the Penn-Mar Foundation team knew that being agile and fluid would be crucial in accomplishing many of our objectives. Ideas that would’ve been considered unorthodox during any other year were adopted to create new possibilities and overcome challenges. A perfect example that encapsulates this determination was the 2021 Gala, our 29th annual. Traditionally held in March, the event is our most vital fundraiser, accounting for 40% of the year’s private revenue. But with safety as our top priority, the Penn-Mar team needed to rethink last year’s event while still offering a fun and inspirational experience.

 

By moving the date to June 5th, we were able to hold the Gala outdoors on a lovely spring evening, welcoming nearly as many guests as in years past. Simultaneously, we offered an online “Party in Place” experience for guests to attend virtually from their homes. The result was a massive hit. 350 people attended in person, another 200 joined us digitally, and we raised over $700,000. In addition to being our first outdoor event, the 2021 Gala made history in another very significant way: we reached our Special Appeal goal of $150,000 live, during the event, for the first time! In all other previous years, the Special Appeal was always reached in the days or weeks after the Gala. We are humbled by the continued support from you, our community, even in the face of the new and unknown.

 

It’s because of your assistance that we can continue to lay the groundwork for a future full of even greater possibility and innovations. Yes, we could do a “good” job utilizing only state and federal funds, but as you know, Penn-Mar has never been in the business of only being good when great is within reach. And though we achieved an incredible amount in 2021, none of it matters if the people we support and their loved ones are not receiving the assistance they need.

 

As you will see in this year’s report, 2021 did indeed deliver some exceptional results and afforded us the chance to better assist our team and those to whom they are dedicated. Below are a few of the historic accomplishments that the Foundation experienced in the past year:

 

  1. Total net assets increased dramatically, by more than 50% to $12 million, the highest number in our 40-year history and largest ever one-year gain
  2. Assets under management rose from roughly $6.5 million to nearly $10.5 million, another historic one-year increase
  3. Funded the “Career Leaders” program with $200,000, delivering an 82% retention rate among participating DSPs
  4. Provided emergency financial assistance to 10 team members

 

But this success doesn’t mean we’ll ever stop thinking of new ways to make a difference for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. If you’re reading this letter, you know all too well that Penn-Mar is a group that never rests on our laurels, no matter our past collective achievements. Each new day is another chance to do better and the incredible support you have provided us further fuels our desire for an even brighter tomorrow.
