Funding Organization Change
Funding organizational change has always been a challenge; however, organizations that truly believe that individuals who have a disability should be an active part of their community have met that challenge. The fact remains that more people enter sheltered workshops/activity centers than employment/community related services.
This presentation discusses strategies to reverse this trend, options for funding organizational change, attract the attention of funding sources and, most importantly, meet the needs of individuals who want to become a part of their community. Suzanne Hutcheson has been the President/CEO of HPS, Helping People Succeed, Inc. since August 1977. In this capacity, she has led the organization through major organizational change from a sheltered workshop/work activity center to a totally community based organization.
