#EnvisionProud. We frequently use this hashtag in reaction to Envision Unlimited’s accomplishments during the pandemic. We are immensely proud that the Board of Directors’ plans and investments, leveraged by an adept and passionate management team and a committed and caring staff, has led to our resilient emergence from a shocking global pandemic and lockdown.

We have learned that we can keep the pandemic on our radar without allowing it to change our trajectory. For example, Envision is now delivering training and therapy to children in their familiar home surroundings or conveniently online. We also have implemented the Illinois Department of Human Services’ multidisciplinary Acute Community Treatment/Community Support Team approach that enables individuals with We could not have predicted such an extreme acute mental illness to receive the services event.

our terms. We designed new programs that made inclusion a more tangible experience for our members, as you’ll see in this report. Some of them were in conjunction with community partners who were eager to engage more deeply with our programs and members.

Before you knew it, you were coasting down the sidewalk. You turned around to brag about how well you were doing—and no one was there! You had been pedaling in a straight line without training wheels, and you were picking up speed.

While we do not invite adversity, we found a silver lining that made us stronger and more resourceful. It brought us together for the common good. And, as we have learned during the past year, it can inspire us to reimagine an even greater Envision Unlimited tomorrow than we created today.

For Envision Unlimited, this past year was much the same experience. We had never encountered anything as alarming as a pandemic or its accompanying lockdowns. Yet, there we were, making all the necessary adjustments not only to power through several phases of it, but to reimagine a new normal on

Thank you for joining us on this thrilling ride! Gratefully, President and CEO



Community Day Services,

Around the world, many struggled to adjust to the realities of a global pandemic. But in the Envision Unlimited universe, we saw an opportunity to reimagine, reinvent, and reshape our community day services offerings. The changes we created are not only dramatic; they are engaging and popular. Our new Adventures, Expeditions, and Neighbors programs give our members more choices, more independence, and enables them to be integrated into the community more organically than ever before. This “new normal” in our Community Day Services reinforces our mission, sharpens our vision, and our staff and members love it!

MORE Choices

MORE Independence

MORE Inclusion

• Members attend social or cultural outings in addition to those initiated by their day programs.

• Outings are planned by members and enable them to meet with friends, like others their age.

• Outings can occur in the evenings or during weekends anywhere in the city.

• They choose a meeting place—and arrive and depart independently rather than as a group.

• Members visit each other’s communities and discover what makes them unique. • The program also encourages members to explore their own communities, meet small business owners and workers.

Autism Therapy, and Mental Health In 2021, we expanded our autism treatment services to children between the ages of 2-17. We began delivering these vital services directly in their homes through our accredited ABA Therapy telehealth program. We also elevated our mental health services to another level by adding telepsych (online) services and new programs for those with serious mental illness. The Acute Community Treatment (ACT) and the Community Support Team (CST) hybrid model gives clients access to mental health services close to their homes and surrounds them with 24/7-level support to manage their illness. Many are able to not only avoid hospitalization but also successfully hold jobs.

Mental Health Client Lands a Dream Job and a Home As a teen, Danny dreamed of being an auto mechanic. He pursued that dream at Truman College and even landed a job in the field. He quickly discovered that he really didn’t enjoy it. After experiencing symptoms of mental illness, he wanted a job that could help him manage his health needs. His employer shifted him to a janitorial role. That worked. “It was easier and more flexible,” he said. Then Danny spotted a position online that really excited him: a janitorial role at Wrigley Field. He has worked at Wrigley for one year with the aid of Envision’s Community Support Team. Within months of starting the job, he was able to move out of a group home and into his own apartment.

Danny says he loves his job at Wrigley.

“The goal is two-fold: resilience and recovery,” explained Jean Xoubi, Senior Vice President of Mental Health and Business Development. “Once resilient, individuals should be better able to get on and stay on the road to recovery, including holding a job and becoming self-sufficient.”

Host Family Program Delivers Warm Welcome Within a span of four months, the two most important people in Terrill’s life were gone. His brother died in January 2021. In April, complications from Covid claimed his mother. At 51, Terrill suddenly needed a home. Envision’s Host Family Program places adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in compatible homes. But the pandemic made it difficult to make those vital in-person connections. The shift to virtual meetings, allowed Maggie and Jerome Harris to visit with Terrill online. The couple had fostered four teens and had previously hosted an Envision member. When Host Family Coordinator Latonia Everett told them about Terrill, they were eager to host again. 8

That first meeting was followed by weekend visits, and the two men quickly bonded over sports. In late August, Terrill moved into the Harrises’ Southwest Side home. In September, he took time off from work and joined his host family for a nine-day vacation in Las Vegas, where the Harrises have property. “Terrill is such a warm person. He just touched my heart. We just fell in love with him. I tell everybody he’s my son,” said Maggie Harris, who also has a grown daughter. “He likes helping around the house. He’s perfect in every way.” By all accounts, this pairing was a match made in heaven—an outcome the Envision Host Family program strives to achieve. They exceeded their placement goals for 2021, despite the pandemic challenges. And they anticipate another successful year—no matter what challenges arise.

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW Envision Unlimited’s balance sheet continued to improve this past year, providing the flexibility necessary to enhance programs and services which achieve our overall mission and purpose. Through determination and perseverance, we were able to achieve this despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. During fiscal year 2021, net assets totaled $10,609,561—an increase of $220,265 notwithstanding reduction in program fees because of the pandemic. This increase was largely driven by government support through CARES Act funding and “Reinvention” payments. Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) services continued its strong performance along with Community Living Services and Mental Health Services while Day Program Service revenues suffered due to pandemic-driven low member attendance. While we begin fiscal year 2022 with similar pandemic-related challenges, we are hopeful that our programs will get back on track for growth and enhanced services as COVID-19 infections diminish and we return to normalcy.

2021 Volunteer of the Year Boosted Members’ Self Esteem “I’m beautiful. I’m beautiful. I’ve got it going on!” The words echoed throughout Frick Center as Envision members embraced the spirit of the lyrical mantra. They were all aglow, almost dancing, after spending a few hours with former model Sheree Bynum, who was prepping them for their upcoming fashion show. Sheree met Envision the same way so many people do: through a chance encounter with Chief Development Officer Marty Kenahan. When Sheree mentioned that she had been a model, Marty cataloged that information and kept in touch. Fast forward two years. After discovering that Envision members wanted to stage a fashion show, Marty instantly reached out to Sheree. Just as quickly, Sheree volunteered to help. Sheree says our Envision members inspired her with their enthusiasm and willingness to be “sassy” on the runway. To reward that sass, she bought and presented each model with a trophy at the dress rehearsal. Each was personalized with the member’s name--and the mantra she taught them to repeat to themselves as they strutted the runway. This memorable member-inspired and member-led fundraiser was made even more joyful because of the effervescent woman who not only believed in the members, but reminded them that they are beautiful. Sheree (l) coaches Miss Lillie.

Members Reimagined and Reconnected After months of being separated from their friends, Envision members at Westtown Center were inspired to imagine how they could stay connected if they couldn’t be together. Their solution was to publish an electronic newsletter for, by, and about Envision members: stories about their activities, expeditions, home lives, favorite books, movies, TV shows, and even recipes. With the encouragement and support of Westtown Center Director Hannah Lowe and journalist Ruth Lopez, their dream was realized. On April 8, they launched it online. Since then, members from other centers have contributed stories and they have published nearly 30 bi-weekly issues. The collaboration has broadened members’ circle of friends, improved their writing skills, and given them a tremendous sense of accomplishment. 14

Donors Challenged Us to Reimagine in



arents Karen and Jon Cashen were concerned. The pandemic had closed their daughter Phoebe’s community day center. Without activities, adventure, and social interaction, what would she and the other members at the Center do? After all, who knew how long the pandemic lockdown would last? And what impact would it have on the well-being of Envision members? Working with Envision President and CEO Mark McHugh and Vice President of Day and Employment Services Susan Gardner, the brainstorming began. “We considered a variety of activities that members could engage in away from the centers,” Susan Gardner recalled. One option: As part of its inclusion activities, Envision has always encouraged members to spend more time in the community and exploring the city. Because of the expense, it wasn’t a formal program. Now, it would be. Donor funding also strengthened Envision’s Art Studio and Van J. Voorhees Horticulture Program activities. There had been a media club, but now they had funding to produce virtual programming for members who were shut in. And they distributed iPads to members who had no technology to access that programming. There are exercise and sign language classes. Board member Lori Marin hosts an “Arm Chair Adventure” show in which she shares photos from some of her trips to adventurous places. To socialize and meet new friends, there is even a program where members from all the centers can chat with each other over coffee. And from fashionista Phoebe’s love for blinging purses and gently worn denim jackets was born the idea for the members to produce a runway show with a “Phoebe’s Fashions” segment. “I think back about how this past year could have been very limiting and really depressing,” Karen Cashen reflected. “But in fact, it has not been. It has been a new way of looking at skills and talents and interests and enthusiasm. And it’s turned out to be just fine, and so I think moving forward, things will be even better!”
