2023 Achieva Annual Report

April 15, 2024

We are pleased to present our 2023 Annual Report, themed “Empowering Futures.” This report encapsulates our collective efforts and achievements over the past fiscal year (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023) in advancing our mission to advocate with, empower, and support people with disabilities and their families.

We have positioned ourselves for continued success in the years ahead through a recalibrated strategic vision and a resumed focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our dedication to person-centered planning has been evident in every aspect of our work, from supporting people in selecting and customizing their homes to equipping aspiring employees to find the perfect job. By providing tailored support, we have empowered countless individuals to live fulfilling and independent lives.

Advocacy has remained a cornerstone of our work, and our efforts have impacted lives. From advocating for increased direct support professional (DSP) pay to championing children’s rights in schools, we have worked tirelessly to create a more equitable and just society for all.

In addition to the people we support, we want to acknowledge and give credit to our board, staff, volunteers, and community partners. Together, we have demonstrated the power of collective action in creating positive change and empowering futures. As we look ahead, we remain committed to our vision of a community where all people with disabilities lead lives of personal significance.

With your continued support and partnership, we are confident that we will continue to make a lasting impact by advocating with those who accept our support.

Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to our mission.
