MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT We are very pleased to share with you our Annual Report for 2012 – our very first one.

Management Team Turk Thacher

All of us at Baker would like to thank our customers and donors for their unwavering support – without you there would be no Baker Industries. Needless to say, the “quirky” economy of the past several years has presented challenges for most organizations, and Baker is certainly no exception. Thanks to all of you, we have had some success on the business side of Baker, which enables us to sustain our special program.


All nonprofits are evaluated on their “results” – clearly the ultimate result for us is when one of our Bakerites moves on to employment outside of Baker. Although we consider these figures when evaluating the effectiveness of our program, we believe that the full impact of our mission is immeasurable. Every Bakerite we welcome to Baker Industries, each hour of work we are able to offer to them makes a difference to their lives and to the lives of people around them. The skills and the experiences with which Baker Industries provides each participant, not to mention the source of income, are the truly impactful elements of our program, benefits that are less tangible than counting the number of graduating Bakerites, but that are by no means any less valuable.

Director of Finance

For the past several years we have strived to form collaborative arrangements with other organizations to enable us to offer additional services to our Bakerites. In 2012 we began a wonderful partnership with Thomas Jefferson University’s Department of Occupational Therapy, bringing OT Master’s Degree Candidates into our program to work with our Bakerites and help them “live life to its fullest.” It has been a win-win situation for both organizations, and we hope it will become a permanent addition to our program. The uniqueness of our program is special to all of us – we do not know of any other organization that works with four different segments of the lowincome vulnerable adult population, and does so without any government support. The need for our mission continues to grow each year. We are extremely fortunate to have a devoted staff very focused on what we need to do. Thank you all for your continued support and generosity.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS As Chairman of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present Baker Industries’ 2012 Annual Report. 2012 was a good year in many respects and a challenge in others. We finished 2012 financially strong; even though we are a nonprofit, we have to be able to cover our expenses to exist. Our greatest challenge is the present economy. Part of our mission is to move as many of our employees as are able and ready into the regular workplace. Our success rate in accomplishing this has been below what we would like due to dwindling openings in entry level jobs. Opportunities have been exceedingly tough to find. Baker Industries has great supporters, an energetic and an accomplished board, and a truly devoted staff who sincerely buy into our mission. We are optimistic for 2013! Charles P. Baker III Chairman, Board of Directors Charles and Louise Baker have devoted 32 years of their life to the creation and building of Baker Industries, and they have done so for essentially no compensation. Mr. Baker is a graduate of the USMA at West Point and ran a small family business for 30 years before founding Baker Industries.

SUCCESS STORIES 2012 Success is measured in many ways at Baker. Ultimately it’s about having the resolve and determination to keep going, regardless of barriers and obstacles that get in the way.

BOB Bob graduated college with a degree in chemistry and held numerous jobs as a scientist, but a difficult divorce in 2007 threw him off track. A few bad decisions led to financial hardship, and Bob’s life spiraled downward. A few years later, Bob found his way to Baker, where he began to pull his life back together. Baker gave Bob the chance to work a steady job again and get back into a routine of good decisions. He worked hard and quickly became a supervisor. Bob was known for the quality of his work and for his positive attitude. As Bob began to regain his confidence and remember his talents, he wrote, “I regret terribly the choices I made, believe I am fully rehabilitated, and am desperately looking for someone to give me a chance to prove myself and rebuild my life.” Bob found that chance in July of 2012, when Lancaster Laboratories hired him for his expertise in chemistry. We miss him greatly, but Bob’s story will always remind us of the power of optimism and a fresh start.

MIKE and DEBBIE Mike was assigned to Debbie’s line when he started at Baker. For him, it was love at first sight. Mike was taken with Debbie: her infectious laugh, kind heart, and no-nonsense supervisory style. For Debbie, it took a little longer, but she began to develop feelings for Mike, a shy, sweet guy with a great smile. It wasn’t too long before they were dating. Then, Debbie’s birthday came around. On bended knee, Mike asked her to marry him. Of course, she said yes! They were married in April of 2012. Debbie says she’s never been happier and Mike smiles in agreement. We celebrated with them just days prior to the wedding with a cake, balloons, and a bride’s bouquet made by Weezie. It was a great day!


SUCCESS STORIES 2012 JAMES At Baker we like to say we are “trying to lose our best people every day,” since permanent job placement is the ultimate goal for our ex-offender population. James was one of our best. He did a great job not only in Malvern, but also as an off-site temp. James made good use of our program, and after a few months, to the surprise of no one except maybe himself, he got a permanent job as a Test Tech at Omega Flex in Exton. James told us, “The opportunity Baker Industries gave me was wonderful. It was the stepping stone I needed.”

SARA For people with serious mental illness, life is often a cycle of hospitalization, medication issues, decline, and recovery, particularly in young adulthood. While work is almost impossible to find, the desire to work and be a part of an organization is often intact. At Baker, we understand this and are committed to accommodating the needs of workers like Sara, a friendly and capable young woman who struggles with serious mental illness. Sara is loved by all in the Baker community, and when she returns after a long absence, a spontaneous cheer resounds as she takes her place on the production floor! She brightens our lives.

TIM When Tim interviewed at Baker, he divulged a list of failures—jobs that didn’t work out, attempts at college, etc. He had been diagnosed with a processing delay and was suffering from anxiety, and some tasks didn’t come easily to Tim. At age 21, he seemed to have given up on ever succeeding at anything. But Tim is a hard worker—reliable and dependable, too. He got the hang of the work and was soon one of the fastest on the line. Watching his progress was akin to watching a flower bloom. As his confidence grew, so did he! Tim’s demeanor completely changed—now he stands straight and tall and has an easy smile. We know a lucky employer is going to snap him up soon. Tim is ready; our work here is done.


Financial Report 2012 Baker Industries does not take any government funding. Around 70% of the revenue needed to meet our annual expenses comes from payment for the jobs we do for our customers. The balance comes from individuals and organizations willing to make charitable contributions to our operating costs. We intentionally have a lean staff, and our administrative costs consistently average 6% of our budget.
