I t took awhile for us to find answers about

our son, Joey. We finally found Fraser, received an autism diagnosis and the help he needed. So often parents look only at the services right in their backyard. I wish we would have known how much Fraser would have helped us, because we would have reached out sooner. He’s grown by leaps and bounds. “We’ve always felt cared for and cared about.”

Before Fraser, even though he was receiving therapy elsewhere, Joey would have daily tantrums that are better described as “volcanic eruptions.” Hugging was not allowed. It’s heartbreaking, as a mom, to not be able to give your child a hug without them melting down. My husband spent his lunch hour every day for three months driving Joey to Fraser Minneapolis for day treatment and pediatric therapy. That commitment has paid off. Joey can now give hugs and express what he wants. 6

2 015 FR A SE R A NN UA L R E P OR T

He still has meltdowns but they are a lot less frequent, and Fraser taught us how to talk to him, how to connect with him. Now that Joey is in school, he is part of the individual skills group at Fraser Eagan. His clinicians collaborate with Fraser and vice versa. It’s wonderful because there is open communication between Fraser and his clinicians. It’s made a great team for Joey, that level of cooperation. Joey has been through a lot of transitions since his diagnosis five years ago. That’s why consistency of care and the culture at Fraser is so important. They know us and know Joey. There’s an understanding at Fraser - they get it. They know what we have to deal with day in and day out. We’ve always felt cared for and cared about. We can’t say thank you enough to Fraser. Those leaps and bounds Joey has made are a direct result of Fraser. You’ve given us our son.

M y adopted children, Ross and Alyse,

Ross just received a star on his spelling test. Last year, the teacher was unable to even give have faced many challenges since coming to him a spelling test. He’s expanding outside of Minnesota from Haiti six years ago. Now that they’ve “graduated” from Fraser day treatment, the classroom as well. After his first football game, I had a mom tell me I was doing a great occupational and music therapy, I can see job raising him. She has never seen a child in clearly the impact Fraser had. We’ve all come second grade show that level of sportsmanship. a long way from the day we walked in: I no longer chase my children down our street, Alyse started playing basketball and was the top repair broken televisions or struggle to keep cookie-seller in her Girl Scout troop. She’s a everyone safe during a mega-meltdown. rock star in the classroom as well. I recently received a glowing email from her teacher, But most importantly, I no longer question telling me that Alyse is “extremely kind, my abilities as a mother. Fraser helped caring, thoughtful and very conscientious.” me unpack scary words like - Adjustment Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Sensory Integration and Reactive Attachment Disorder. Through that I came to understand the impacts of trauma on my children and how to help them become who they are today.

“I no longer

question my abilities

as a mother”

I’m really not one to brag about my children. But I think it is so important to look at how having the right services and people who believe in you can change a child’s life and change a family. Because of Fraser, we are a family that is successful, happy and whole.

You never know what you are capable of

until you try. When I moved into my Fraser apartment, I had no idea how independent I would become. We waited two years for an opening, and I feel lucky that I found this place. When I moved in my mom and dad helped me decorate. My dad put together furniture, hung pictures, making it feel like mine and like home. He liked Fraser and was excited that I was a part of this community. The staff is very supportive and responsive, and I found as the years have gone by that I can do this on my own. I like walking in the community, seeing what is going on, going to the grocery store, the hardware store. The location is perfect, in the heart of the community. I live close to the bus stop, which allows me to get to work on time. I’ve had my job for eleven years, but wasn’t responsible for getting there

on my own. But now I am. I balance my checkbook, shop, keep to a schedule and cook. All of these things came from moving into a Fraser Independent Living Apartment. Before, in our family home, I was isolated and stuck. This apartment has opened me up a lot. I’m proud of my apartment. Everyone likes to visit. The windows let in lots of light. I’m even able to host my brother, sister and mother for holidays. My dad would be proud if he could see me now. I’m really doing this, and it’s all because of Fraser.

“The atmostphere at e Fraser School feels lik family, very warm.”

W e knew about Fraser long before we needed

their services, having a close family friend that was a founding member. So when Timothy was born we thought, of course, he’ll go to Fraser. When you have a child with special needs you need someone you can trust. That’s why we turned to Fraser and why we stay. The atmosphere at Fraser School feels like family, very warm. Everyone we see knows our son’s name. When we walk down the halls, they all say, “Hi TT!” Any parent wants their preschool to be a safe place you trust that’s like home, and Fraser has been that for us. Timothy is in the Ladybug classroom two days a week and also gets speech and occupational therapy integrated into his day. We know that Fraser is equipped to meet all our son’s needs. The staff is impressive. You can tell they continue to learn and keep abreast of the latest methods. It feels like his teachers are watching him develop. They are right there with him.

They see what’s new, and what’s going on and what he needs. And they do that for all the children in their class. It’s amazing. Fraser School does a good job of building community in addition to the education and therapy they provide – Family Fun Nights, Dads and Donuts, Class Picnics. For us, Jessica’s Playground ribbon cutting ceremony was wonderful. Timothy is not the kind of kid you can easily take out and about – places like the grocery story or Target. We’re always seeking social opportunities. Fraser is a safe place for him to be social. So it was a nobrainer. We went and had a great time. People think that Fraser School is only for children with special needs. But no, Fraser is a traditional preschool with typical children, and Timothy is included in that setting. That is our hope for his future. That he will be included as much as possible. For us, Fraser School is the perfect start.

For the purpose of simplification, all Fraser-affiliated entities are combined here. This includes Fraser (which includes Fraser School, Fraser Home and Community Supports, Fraser Residential Living and Fraser Pediatric Therapy), Fraser Behavioral and Mental Health and five Fraser Independent Living Project (ILP) apartment buildings. Fraser meets all accountability standards set by The Charities Review Council, an independent organization that reviews Minnesota nonprofits to help donors make informed giving decisions. Fraser is a contract provider for Hennepin county and other counties. Fraser is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to the equal treatment of all employees without regard to race, religion, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation or any other factor prohibited by law. The State of Minnesota and private medical insurance companies have continually varied reimbursement rates for some treatment services provided by Fraser. These fluctuations resulted in an increased reimbursement rate for the last two fiscal years for one Fraser primary treatment programs. Reimbursement rate volatility has unfortunately become more common. Program compliance and rates are reviewed on a regular basis and these

26

2 015 FR A SE R A NN UA L R E P OR T

reviews can result in reimbursement rate changes or paybacks with little notice. In addition, certain benefit sets and services are also at risk for legislative changes which could have a dramatic and uncertain negative impact on the Fraser revenue stream. Fraser Board of Directors has identified increasing our operating reserves as a strategic priority to mitigate potential future financial challenges due to legislative and payment changes. Industry standards recommend nonprofits have six months of operating reserve funds on hand. Fraser currently has less than one month of expenses in its Board Designated Operating Reserves. As a result, the Fraser Board of Directors has restricted the 2015 increase in net assets to: 1) Increasing Fraser operating reserve; 2) Improving operations and infrastructure in order to maintain the highest quality of service for clients; 3) Preparing for health care reform changes including costly technology upgrades; 4) Expanding services to reduce the wait-list for services. Fraser is committed to building a strong financial reserve and using those financial resources over the long term in response to anticipated economic challenges to improve client services and continuity of care.
