Penn-Mar: Courage on Display Annual Report 2020

In Bold Pursuit

Dear Friends,

 

As we look back on a year like no other, it would be easy to reflect on the challenges, frustrations, and tragedies that we all faced.  But without discounting any of the significant hardships, we would like to steer in another direction and highlight what we’ve learned from this pandemic and what it has revealed about the courage and resolve of this incredible organization.

 

First and foremost, words cannot express our gratitude or fully describe just how selfless and brave every member of the Penn-Mar team has been. Day after day, they have been giving of their time and love, doing whatever they can to put a smile on the faces of the people we support- and one another. Most importantly, our team has been steadfast in the pursuit of health and safety. We have the tools and techniques to keep everyone as safe as possible, and our team is more dedicated than ever.

 

Many of those tools have revealed their value not just during the pandemic, but also their place in the future of our organization, pushing Penn-Mar to look at how innovation will allow us to help more people.  For instance, virtual meeting platforms have demonstrated just how connected we can be when face-to-face interaction is not possible. This realization has spurred us to consider other advances that could prove to be invaluable as we explore more ways to provide the highest levels of service.

 

Perhaps the most significant lesson that COVID has taught all of us is that social isolation can be crippling. But in the past, isolation has often been the norm for people with IDD. That’s one reason why Penn-Mar’s goal has always been to spread inclusion and equity for those with IDD and shift perceptions within the community through our myriad of programs and services. By having a glimpse at the everyday isolation experienced by someone with IDD who does not have a team behind them, it’s clear that we must work harder than ever to support them in living a full and happy life. The ongoing distancing and lockdowns revealed that Penn-Mar offers a final social safety net and without us, those with IDD risk staying hidden in the darkness.

 

As 2021 approaches, we should continue to respect the dangers of this pandemic, without letting fear overtake our lives. Instead, let us live courageously in our pursuit to lift up the ones who are most vulnerable, realizing that 2020 has revealed what life can be like without Penn-Mar’s support.

Be Loved

Nothing could stop Amanda and Greg’s big day.

 

Not a global pandemic, not a rainstorm, not even a society that sadly doesn’t always embrace the idea of two people with disabilities falling in love.

 

That’s because Greg and Amanda know what we all know in our hearts – that we deserve to be loved.

 

Like most weddings, there were a lot of people who pitched in to make it happen, from friends and family to Direct Support Professional Elizabeth, who served as the Maid of Honor!

 

While Amanda and Greg’s journey is heartwarming, it shouldn’t be sensational. People with disabilities who want to have meaningful relationships deserve to have them, and Penn-Mar exists to ensure that every person can live a life they love.

Be There

Direct Support Professional Alesha snapped this photo of her and Paul on a ‘typical’ day at work.

 

Except nothing about 2020 has been ‘typical,’ and being a DSP will never be a ‘typical’ job. Yet DSPs like Alesha have made a commitment to be there for the people they support.

 

We’re incredibly thankful for Alesha and her colleagues. They are a critical workforce, on the frontlines supporting people with disabilities 24/7, 365. Their impact on the people they support, their families, and our community is immeasurable.

 

But when words fail, pictures say plenty. And this one portrays precisely what’s at the heart of our mission.

Be Brave

We’re betting that when you hear the phrase, ‘Essential Employee,’ you don’t picture someone with a disability. You should.

 

Many of us have been understandably apprehensive to return to work during COVID-19. Not Mattie. When presented with the opportunity to return to her job at Panera Bread, she wanted to be brave.

 

As an essential employee, Mattie is undeniably courageous. She also has the support of our stellar Customized Employment team. They not only helped her identify her career goals, but worked with her to find a job she loves, where she’s respected and properly compensated.

 

We think that’s pretty essential.

An Enduring Investment

The COVID-19 pandemic has provided further proof of just how critical Penn-Mar’s role is within the community in supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Demand for our services has increased, creating unforeseen expenses for which our traditional funding methods could not have prepared us. As a result, we’ve had to innovate and adapt at a record pace so we can continue to provide the necessary assistance that the people we support have come to count on.

 

Though our team has courageously stepped up in every way possible, nonprofits like Penn-Mar are faced with an uncertain future as the economy continues to suffer. All of this points to the vital role that the Penn-Mar Foundation plays in the success of our organization. The Foundation brings families, communities, and companies together to continue our mission in ways that would be impossible if not for its existence.

 

In the best of times, traditional funding can’t sustain our future and those resources are especially uncertain in the coming year. The budget shortfalls at the state level could result in reduced funding for human services organizations like Penn-Mar, and in the process, hurt the ones who need support the most. Looking ahead, the Foundation’s role is more vital than ever.

 

As an outside revenue source, The Black Tie Gala raised over $775,000 in 2020, funding essential programs and services. On top of that enormous outpouring of generosity, individual philanthropists continue to invest in our future by contributing generously to our endowed funds, one of the most important of which supports our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs).

 

Without DSPs, the work we do would be virtually impossible. Making sure they stay with Penn-Mar for the long-term, not leave the organization or the profession as a whole, is imperative to Penn-Mar’s future and the people we’re committed to serving.  The DSP’s skill, dedication, and courage make the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) untethered by antiquated societal restrictions or the burden of isolation. But financial resources are critical for the future of Penn-Mar’s DSPs and without the Foundation, the lives of people with IDD would be greatly diminished.

 

Below are some of the key programs and funds we’re concentrating on as we look for ways to improve and innovate in the years ahead, investing in initiatives that deliver remarkable results:

 

Career Ladders: Over $1.1 million has been raised through the Gala since 2016 to support current costs of the program and $2.4 million (and growing) currently in the Michael James Pitts Endowment for the Advancement of Direct Support Professionals, ensuring this program’s future. 57 DSPs are in the program with 46 certified, and Penn-Mar has a 91% retention rate of credentialed DSPs.

 

Team Member Care Fund: The Care Fund provided much needed relief to our residential homes during the height of the lockdown by providing a Chef’s Night Off for each home once a week for eight weeks, and emergency financial relief for individual team members with demonstrated need.

 

Person-Centered Culture: The development of a cohesive, coordinated, and intentional person-centered approach across all programs that allows the people we support to live their best life.

 

As we look to the future, with all we learned and experienced through the pandemic, we know it’s more important than ever to fund innovation and invest in our future. The Foundation is the key to this investment and most imperative of all, supporting the people who count on Penn-Mar the most.
