Mission Statement

Mission Statement: Offering persons with disabilities the opportunity to achieve, maintain, and strengthen their level of independence.

Approximately 35 years ago the Center for Independent Living of North Florida, now DBA Ability1st began serving people with varying disabilities in the Big Bend. Ability1st recognizes that each person with a disability has the right to live independently and participate actively in the community. With that in mind the organization provides basic supports and services that allow each person to achieve their desired level of independence.

Needs Statement

Ability1st implemented a capital campaign in 2012 to raise $65,000.  The funds will allow the organization to convert the existing carport into a central storage area for the Accessibility Program.update progress.  More equipment and supplies could be stored, inventoried, cleaned and provided to individuals who need it.

The Access to Independence Program is also in need of additional funds to provide ongoing incontinence supplies for those low income persons  on our waiting list.

Ability1st also needs to create a line item (Approximately $10,000 annually) in the budget for emergency assistance for persons with disabilities.  One of the most critical things this organization does is fill an immediate need when no one else can.  It may be providing an emergency bus pass to provide transportation in order to obtain basic assistance, filling an initial prescription until the individual gets their next check, a gas card to help someone travel back & forth from needed medical care.  These are small, one time needs that often make a big difference in the person's ability to remain independent.

Volunteer mentors are also needed to support persons with disabilities in our permanent supportive housing programs that need assistance with life management skills and problem solving. 

Impact Statement
Accomplishments:
 
Over the past two years, Ability1st experienced a 40 percent increase in the number of individuals requesting and receiving assistance from our Access to Independence program.  This program provides accessibility services to low income persons living with disabilities.  During the past year, Abiltiy1st constructed 56 wheelchair ramps within the 6 county area around Tallahassee, using 100% volunteer labor. We also loaned over one thousand pieces of durable medical equipment and provided incontinence supplies to over 50 individuals.
 
Ability1s now provides a High School High Tech Program in Leon, Wakulla and Gadsden Counties. These programs provide over 60 young persons with disabilities the opportunity to explore academic and career development options through training workshops, mentoring and internships in STEM related fields. This program has been shown to reduce high school drop out and to improve post secondary outcomes for students with disabilities.
 
Ability1st has successfully transitioned 22 persons with disabilities formerly confined to nursing homes to once again living independently in the community.  
 
The organizations primary goals for the upcoming year are:
 
Goal 1:  Ability1st will increase the organization's capacity to provide a full range of accessibility services to people with physical disabilities through the Access to Independence Program.


Goal 2: Ability1st will develop support programs for caregivers aged 55 or older that are providing direct care to family members with developmental disabilities or seniors with disabilities.

Goal 3:  Ability1st Board of Directors in partnership with the Management Staff will position the organization for a change in leadership.

Background Statement
Ability1st, is the Center for Independent Living of North Florida assisting people with disabilities in Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla, Taylor, Madison and Jefferson counties for over 30 years.

The organization offers persons with disabilities the opportunity to achieve, maintain, and strengthen their level of independence. Ability1st offers four core services free of charge:  Advocacy – we help individuals with disabilities learn to represent their own interests, make their own choices and defend those choices when necessary through what we call individual advocacy.  We also work to protect the civil rights of individuals with disabilities and affect system-wide reforms regarding disability issues through what we call system advocacy.  Independent living skills education helps individuals with disabilities improve their quality of life.  Ability1st provides the encouragement, training and assistance needed for consumers to develop necessary daily living skills.  Ability1st teaches people with disabilities the skills they need to live their lives as independently as they choose.  Information and Referral is a resource for consumers and their family members, providing information on all aspects of disability and independent living.  Resources include service providers, equipment vendors, accessibility products and much more.  Peer Support offers support for people with disabilities. The majority of our staff and board are people with disabilities that can listen, share similar experiences and support the achievement of independent living goals. 

In addition to these common services provided by all Centers for Independent Living across the country, Ability1st provides a range of critical supports to persons with disabilities that are not otherwise available elsewhere in the community.  This includes:
  
•DME  Loan closet with wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs and other basic technology that can assist with independent living
• Coordinating the construction of wheelchair ramps by community volunteers
• Specialized assistance for individuals with disabilities that become victims of crime
• Transition case management for persons under 60 years of age living in nursing homes
• Disability sensitivity training and ADA evaluations
• Housing assistance for homeless families and chronically homeless individuals with disabilities
• Community Sign Language classes.
• Smoking Cessation classes and other support groups

While Ability1st is located in Tallahassee and primarily serves Leon County, program services extend to the surrounding six counties. Access to Independence services are provided in all counties within our catchment area. Caregiver supports are also provided in Wakulla County. Mental Health Outreach, Supportive Housing, Independent Living Resources and our Victims Services Programs all serve the rural counties in our area. 
Board Chair Statement

Any discussion of the successes surrounding Ability1st must, in my opinion, begin and end with the dedication of our staff to their work.  Whether consumers are being served through our accessibility program via ramp building and equipment loans; or our High School High Tech program providing local students with disabilities vocational training and potential internships; or any of the other programs we administer, it is the groundwork laid by our staff that makes those services possible.

As with many organizations whose revenues are tied to government contracts, arguably the greatest challenge facing Ability1st is the raising of funds outside of those contractual avenues.  It is a major focus of the Board of Directors to secure revenue streams that will help insulate our organization from the ebbs and flows of legislative appropriation as, in some cases, programs and staffing are determined by the availability of those government funds.  While this scenario is quite often the very nature of not-for-profit work, losing the ability to serve persons with disabilities in our community for financial reasons is something that Ability1st is working diligently to remedy.

The work of Ability1st is particularly important to me as I am a person with a disability.  Before my recruitment to the board almost three years ago, I
was unaware of the existence of our organization, and I was relatively naïve as to the needs of many of the consumers I now help serve.  I say this with
the understanding that if I, as a person with a disability in our community, was previously unaware of Ability1st, it stands to reason that many others
are in the same boat.  However, just as I have been shown the immense need of our consumers and the wonderful opportunity we all have to serve, I am convinced that our community can come together for this common cause and create positive change in the lives of individuals served by Ability1st.

Please feel free to contact our organization at any time regarding volunteer opportunities and other ways to get involved in our mission.  Our consumers rarely have anywhere else to turn, and your support is truly necessary and will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Ryan Overstreet
President

CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement The most unique and challenging aspects of Ability1st, the Center for Independent Living of North Florida  is serving  anyone with any type of disability: physical, cognitive, or sensory, whether they recently acquired it, were born with it or if it is temporary i.e. (following surgery or accident.)  All of these people may receive assistance from our organization. They simply have to ask.   Our mission is very simple --- Ability1st is here to help you achieve, maintain or strengthen your level of independence. The needs of the individuals served are very basic and the goal is simple “to live more independently in our community”.   Some examples of the calls we receive: (1) identifying housing options that meet your budget and accessibility needs or (2) learning to utilize the public bus system and (3) acquiring a piece of technology that will improve your ability to live independently. The things that they may need to live more independently are as varied as the people themselves. What the staff and board know about Ability1st is we are often the last resort for persons with disabilities. Human service organizations in the community assist with meeting basic needs like food, clothing and emergency shelter. Ability1st offers an unduplicated array of services for people with disabilities in response to the gaps in our community’s services. 

 

The federal funding source for Centers for Independent Living requires that we maintain 51% of our staff and board of directors as people with disabilities. People with varying disabilities provide the services as well as the leadership for this non profit. It keeps us honest and we never lose site of the challenges faced by approximately 20% of the population of our community.

 

For almost 35 years Ability1st, the Center for Independent Living of North Florida has served people with disabilities that are predominantly low income and most often struggling to maintain their independence. As the identified needs of people with disabilities changed through the years so did our programming. In the early years it was advocacy and education that our community needed. Attitudes have changed over the years as have the service systems; and advocacy is not as necessary now as it once was. Now the greater need is helping people improve the environments that limit their independence.

Description
This program provides accessibility related services for low income persons with disabilities. This includes:
  • Construction of wheelchair ramps using volunteer labor (both construction professionals and community members)
  • Durable medical equipment loans (wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, shower benches and chairs, bedside commodes, etc.)
  • Disposable medical supplies (incontinence supplies, bed pads, briefs, catheters, etc.)

Each of these program components is designed to provide persons with disabilities the necessary equipment and supplies needed to remain in their homes and continue to live independently within their community. Program recipients do not qualify for other types of assistance and their low, fixed income prevents them from acquiring these services privately. Referrals to the program are primarily made via hospital discharge case managers, home health workers, physical therapists and other human services agency personnel. 
 
Budget $68,000.00

Program Success Monitored By This program reports to and is monitored and evaluated by the City of Tallahassee, the Community Human Services Partnership, Vocational Rehabilitation and the Rehab Services Administration.
Examples of Program Success
During FY 2012, Ability1st coordinated the construction of 56 wheelchair ramps in the 6 county area around Tallahassee.  The commercial cost of these ramps would have been several times the operating budget of the entire Access to Independence Program.  By using 100% volunteer professionals and community members  to design and build each of these ramps an incredible cost effectiveness for the program is achieved.
Success Story:  Jerry is a young father in who had a severe stroke & urgently needed a ramp plus disposable medical supplies and several pieces of equipment. Ability 1st got his ramp built within a week, and provided a bath transfer bench, bedside commode, wheelchair and disposable bed pads and underwear.

Outcomes are monitored by the Area Agency on Aging, the primary funder for this.project.Self evaluation occurs on a regular basis, measuring effectiveness with each program particpant.
 
Semiannually
Examples of Program Success Although this program is in its infancy, some exciting results can be shared.  Many of the caregivers who have participated in weekly counseling are increasing their participation in activities they enjoy with more joy and less guilt.  They are beginning to understand that making time to nourish their own emotional and physical health actually improves the quality of the interactions with the person in their care.  Additionally, they have gained more insight into the layers of loss that both they and the caregivee are experiencing.  With that realization comes more empathy and forgiveness of both self and the caregivee for past and present missteps.  Finally, the caregivers are relieved to feel justified in their own right to grieve those losses and to process some concerns about planning for life after their loved one dies
Description
In addition to the traditional information and referral services provided by Ability1st, this program provides more in depth, individualized problem solving as well as identifying and accessing community resources for the  disability related needs of our consumers. This program focuses on assisting persons with disabilities living in or near poverty improve their level of independence by teaching them how to more effectively use the resources that are available.
 
This program also maintains a growing data base of virtually hidden resources that have been discovered in response to the unique needs and circumstances of the consumers we have served in this program. Examples include: Transportation assistance for cancer treatment and prescription assistance for those without insurance.  Most simply, the program often triages emergency situations and provides small amounts of financial assistance that avert more serious consequences like unnecessary evictions and hospitalizations.
 
 
Budget $35,000.00

Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled, Adults,
Short Term Success Many good things happen!
Long term Success
As this program serves persons with disabilities in financial distress, often the most significant outcomes are related to the improvement in the quality of life that comes from receiving critical assistance at the right time. This results in:
  • Prevention of homelessness
  • Reduction of acute disability issues
  •  
Program Success Monitored By Vocational Rehabilitation funds and monitors this program's outcomes and efficacy.
Examples of Program Success Persons with disabilities without insurance are often treated for chronic medical problems in our hospital emergency rooms or community clinics. They are then given prescriptions that if obtained would treat the issues and prevent them returning or exacerbating.  However, without the funds for even the most inexpensive generic medications or co-pays at the community based pharmacies, these prescriptions go unfilled and unused.  This causes an unnecessary re-utilization of expensive ER or inpatient hospital services that cost the community dearly. By taking the time to assess the consumer's situation, target small amounts of resources to those in critical need, many larger problems are prevented or eliminated. 
Description

High School High Tech targets high school students in Leon, Wakulla and Gadsden Counties, between the ages of 14-22 who have a disability and an interest in pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers. Students are invited to attend presentations by local employees and business owners, to go on group tours of both STEM facilities and post-secondary educational institutions, and to participate in activities that advance leadership and communication skills. Peer to peer mentoring and adult to peer mentoring are examples of other experiences offered, particularly when students participate in job shadowing. Additionally, some students qualify for 80 hour internship opportunity with community employers, which include a stipend.   Assistance with career exploration, resume writing and interviewing skills are all examples of internship precursors.

  
Budget $60,000.00
Category Education, General/Other Vocational Education
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), ,
Short Term Success
The High School High Tech program services are based on nationally recognized, evidence-based Guideposts for success. Outcomes from these guideposts consist of helping students to:
  • participate in site visits to STEM related businesses
  • increase employability skills thorough vocational training activities
  • participate in job shadowing
  • doing college campus tours
  • participating in summer internships
  • be involved in service learning activities
  • engage in mentoring relationships
 
 
Long term Success
The primary goals of the High School High Tech Programming are to:
  •  Reduce the dropout rate of students with disabilities
  • Increase enrollment in post secondary education
  • Improve participation in education, vocational and employment related activities.
Program Success Monitored By The program is monitored and funded by The Able Trust who tracks program outcomes on a quarterly and annual basis.
Examples of Program Success High School High Tech has opened doors to students with disabilities that have lead to increased self-confidence, leadership skills, community involvement and paid employment. The spirit of the program is to assist students in recognizing their abilities and potential and educating them about how and when accommodations can make their career goals possible. Through internship opportunities, three students recently impressed local employers enough to be offered paid employment following their 60-80 hour internships. Two students who have an autism spectrum disorder were offered jobs within the City of Tallahassee, and one student with a neurological disability is employed at the Challenger Learning Center. Two of those students also made public presentations to community employers about the benefits of mentoring students with disabilities. All three are better communicators, regular participants in community service, and role models for their peers.

The Ability1st Board of Directors is a "working" board meaning everyone on the board is expected to attend monthly meetings, be involved in the special events, and raise money for the organization.  The board members have found it very challenging to attract good board members that are willing and able to give this type of commitment.  They have also been challenged by the need to attract a diverse group of people.  The newly developed Strategic Plan for 2013-2015 addresses the priorities the board and executive director have identified for the immediate future.

CEO Comments
There are two areas considered by the board and CEO as the biggest challenges.
1.  Raise funds to support the programs and services that are needed by the population Ability1st serves.  For people with varying disabilities Ability1st is the last stop.  Low income and indigent individuals living with a variety of disabilities contact Ability1st for simple things that mean the world to their ability to maintain their "independence".  It may be a co-pay for their medications, payment for utilities, help in obtaining a new identification, or gas or bus fare to get to doctor appointments or grocery store.  These are small and simple things that many take for granted but for individuals on a very limited income it makes a big difference.  The staff estimate that if they had $5,000 of unrestricted funds available annually they could triage and respond to the most critical needs.
 
2.  The second challenge identified by the ED and board members is  community awareness about Ability1st and the work that is done for people with disabilities on a daily basis.  The staff and volunteers often feel that the community is not aware of the simple things that are provided daily to assist individuals in maintaining their independence.  Without that assistance many would end up in the emergency room, jail, homeless shelter or nursing home.  These options are expensive and unnecessary if simple basic needs are met when they arise.
