Transcript of Hgh annual report 2012

  • I I think we would all agree that we are living in times that are so different than they were only a couple of years ago. What we used to know as usual and customary is a thing of the past. It is imperative that HGH, like all businesses, looks at how we provide services and supports to individuals with disabilities. We must look to see what we can do more effectively and efficiently to better meet the needs of those we serve.

    One of my favorite quotes is from W. Edwards Deming, an American statistician, who said, It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory. The HGH Board of Directors, Management Team members and stakeholders spent over six months this year developing a Strategic Plan so that HGH could continue to meet the needs of our community and the people who count on us every day. The plan was formally adopted by the HGH Board in September and will provide the roadmap for us as we continue the vision our founders had in 1967 when HGH began providing services! Out of our Strategic Plan came a new Mission and a new Vision Statement for HGH

    Mission StatementTo improve the lives of those we serve

    Vision StatementTo be recognized as the premier provider of a dynamic spectrum of individualized services supporting persons with special needs

    HGH is committed to breaking down barriers and to encouraging people with developmental disabilities to fully integrate into our community and to enjoy all that San Diego has to offer it is Americas Finest City! We have our work cut out for us, but I know that our dedicated staff, Board of Directors, Board of Governors, Volunteers, Supporters and You will be there to support HGH as we navigate the numerous challenges in front of us!

    We continue to be proud of our long history of accomplishments and are equally as proud of the accomplishments achieved this past year. A few of the highlights include: Awarded East County Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit of the Year Assuming ownership of three community based homes for children and youth ages 8

    22 with significant behavioral challenges Expanding services for children (from birth to three years oldEarly

    Childhood Development Services) supporting 100 120 families a month

    Added services to an additional 80 families in need in our Respite Program

    Successful fundraising events that have allowed us to bridge the gap between what we are paid for services and what it costs to provide quality supports

    In closing, I want to again assure you that I am dedicated to accountability and efficiency. Every donor dollar and every penny that comes into HGH is spent wisely, helping to create the quality of life that we all strive for.

    If you have any questions or would like to learn more about HGH, my door is always open.

    With warmest regards,

    Mark R. Klaus ExecutiveDirector


  • When you first meet three-and-a-half year old twins Maya and Dexter, you would never know their pediatrician suspected developmental delays at one year of age. Fortunately, new parents Charles and Car-rie were referred to the California Early Start Program through the San Diego Regional Center to receive early childhood intervention services.

    Thanks to a multidisciplinary team of speech therapists, occupational thera-pists, physical therapists, and an HGH Early Childhood Educator, the twins are thriving!

    When Moji Afcari, one of Home of Guiding Hands Early Childhood Educators, started working with Maya and Dexter, they were a few months shy of their sec-ond birthday. Maya needed help with her gross motor skills and both she and Dexter had speech delays.

    Moji used a combination of evidence-based curriculum, combined with play-based techniques and strategies, in order to provide early intervention services tailored specifically for each twins development. The twins enjoyed playing with chunky puzzles, crawling through mesh tunnels, jumping on a small tram-poline, doing crafts with objects found on their nature walks, and reading from picture books. Unknown to the twins, all of this fun was designed to help them achieve age level development skills, so that they were on equal footing with their like-age peers.

    Today Maya loves puzzles, swings and books; Dexter is enamored with his mon-ster trucks, helicopters and motorcycles. Their favorite outdoor activities are going to the beach and playing at the local playground. This summer they start-ed taking swimming lessons. Maya was a bit hesitant at first, but Carrie says now she loves swimming and its hard to get her out of the pool! Most of all, the twins are verbally communicating their needs, wants and desires clearly and without hesitation. Language and communication delays are no longer a concern.

    Its so comforting to have these resources available. Carrie and I are so grateful we learned about the Regional Center, and so glad we were able to work with Moji and Home of Guiding Hands, remarked Charles.

    Home of Guiding Hands is fortunate to have expanded its scope of services to the community since assuming operations of Supporting Alternative Solutions in 2011. SAS brought progressive expertise in Early Childhood Development.HGH now provides a continuum of services for all ages.
