From Our CEO

2015 was another exciting year!

When I took the helm of SourceAmerica in January 2015, I saw an organization steeped in great opportunity, several key challenges, yet rich with exciting possibilities. It was a transitional year for us. Amid restructuring the organization, realigning talents with our mission and redefining our values, we began to reimagine how to create meaningful employment opportunities and expand choices for people with significant disabilities.

We did so by creating new ways of doing business and behaving with a renewed sense of urgency. We did so by vastly increasing our interactions with the disability advocacy community, key policy makers and influencers, with those in the government and private sector, and with our many nonprofit agencies within our network.

We sharpened our focus on our mission and employment expansion, thoughtful advocacy, excellence and innovation, and customer satisfaction.

Our efforts resulted in 113,524 people with significant disabilities employed by SourceAmerica-affiliated AbilityOne-producing nonprofit agencies. Over 43,000 of these were meaningfully employed on AbilityOne projects alone. Our Grassroots program and Congressional Champion efforts broadened the ongoing employment advocacy dialogue for people with disabilities with well over 300 visits to members of Congress. Our efforts influenced high school and college students who participated in innovative research through our Design Challenge program, working directly with people with disabilities at local non-profit agencies. Our efforts for excellence continued to provide foundational workplace improvements for people with disabilities through our Pathways to Careers initiative. And our efforts to continuously improve customer service were center stage at our national conference and forums throughout the year.

As our new commercial lines of business further develop and our sphere of employment policy advocacy grows, and as more people with significant disabilities have meaningful and real choices, know that we could not have done this alone. We appreciate all of you who continue to support SourceAmerica’s vision – meaningful employment choices for every person with a significant disability. Your efforts validated our 2015 conference theme: Better Together.

These achievements are not just ours to celebrate.
They are yours. Thank you!

Steve Soroka
