A Message From the Board President and CEO

2022 was both a busy and exciting year. We were so thrilled to get to see so many of you in person! We are pleased to announce that we have made progress on some of the goals we established a year ago. An especially meaningful moment this year has been having a CHAI resident attend each board meeting to share their personal stories of how long they’ve lived at the home, their day-to-day activities and what they enjoy about living at CHAI.

At the end of the fiscal year we began the process of developing CHAI’s strategic plan for the next 5 years and that work is continuing throughout 2023. As a recap, CHAI was selected, through our participation in the OnBoard leadership program, to receive a matching grant for capacity building initiatives. We were approved for funding to hire a consultant for creating a strategic plan, hiring an HR Generalist and revamping our policy and procedures documents. We qualified for the maximum matching grant allocation to move forward with these projects and in 2023 and 2024 we will work hard to raise the additional $100,000. We are so honored to be part of the strategic planning process in helping to guide what CHAI will look like over the next several years and beyond.

Another goal for the year was revising the CHAI bylaws in order to make them clearer and more transparent. The governance committee reviewed bylaws from similar organizations and the new bylaws were approved by the board. In addition, the governance committee proposed other important documentation including Board Responsibilities and Code of Conduct, a Code of Ethics and a Document Retention Policy to ensure CHAI is following best practices. CHAI also established a Sabbatical Leave policy, which allows senior staff to take up to 30 days paid leave once they have completed 7 years of employment with CHAI.

Other great news for the CHAI staff came in the form of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. These funds were allocated by the federal government to combat the COVID 19 pandemic, including the public health and economic impacts. These funds were distributed to the direct care staff as unexpected bonuses.

seniors, preschoolers and campers as well as continuing our learning and exploring in the community.

In September, we got to see many of you put your athletic skills on display at the CHAI Life Top Golf event. The smiles from the residents faces enjoying the event were wonderful. It was truly an exceptional event with CHAI families, staff, board members and friends getting together and supporting our residents. We are grateful for the

In August, there were changes in the federal rules for Day Habilitation Programs. CHAI has operated a Day Hab program for over 10 years. Our residents attend this robust program each weekday for about six hours at Bauer House. The program has a calendar of events, volunteering, crafting, exercise and learning. The new rules will not allow us to operate in a group home any longer. We are excited to announce our partnership with the Jewish Community Center (JCC). We will be renting a room and be able to enjoy all the interaction the JCC brings. This includes working out, interacting with continued generosity of sponsors who made it possible for us to raise over $250,000 to support our operating budget.

In October, we had an in-person board retreat and welcomed Susan Meier from Onboard to facilitate our discussion. We learned about what it takes to build a high performing board and had an interactive conversation about building CHAI’s board of the future.

We truly appreciate our dedicated staff, families, donors and partners. All of you make it possible for CHAI to do such incredible work in our community. Thank you for the opportunity to serve such an amazing organization!
