VILLA'S BOARD CHAIR AND CEO MESSAGE
Dear Family and Friends,
Villa is proud to celebrate 60 years of providing Love, Care, and Hope for families and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Cheers to 60 years of inspiring moments, investing in the future, and transforming lives. These past two years have been like no other, and Villa has been able to stay strong through it all with the help of all of our donors and amazing staff. Thank you for your dedication to all the individuals we serve.
As Board Chair, I am proud of the resilience Villa has demonstrated in the face of adversity. Over the past 60 years, Villa has helped thousands manage challenges and hardships, and it remains a unique institution that listens to those who all too often do not have a voice.
Villa’s progress during COVID is owed to an extremely dedicated, forward thinking, and passionate team which includes our Board of Directors, Villa staff, volunteers, and donors. As CEO, I personally thank each and every one of you for embracing the vision of a promising future for all of Villa’s participants.
We are continuing our mission, providing quality programs for individuals with diverse needs. Villa offers programs for all ages including the Villa Esperanza School, speech therapy, occupational therapy, three adult day programs, an employment program, and adult residential and independent living programs. We are here to meet the growing needs of the community and offer innovative and enriching programs for every age.
Phase 2A of the Capital Campaign is well underway. With your help, we have raised over 70% of our construction goal and plan to have shovels in the ground in late fall 2022. Phase 2A includes three additional classrooms, an occupational therapy clinic, and a sports and performance center. This new campus is a testament to how much our donors value individuals with special needs.
Thank you for your continued support of Villa. We look forward to providing another 60 years of service to the community.
Chair of the Board 2020-2022
