2012 Annual Report

Our Mission To make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of children, adults and families with special needs. We accomplish this by providing education, healthcare and housing services.

Dear Friends of Fraser Fraser is at a very unique place in its history. Forged by overcoming adversity, our organizational life reflects the lives we impact. In 1935, Mrs. Fraser founded the organization against all odds, and it survives to serve our community today. Nothing was easy for Mrs. Fraser. There were no large donors who lent their fame or fortune to the organization. But Mrs. Fraser had grit. Grit is defined as firmness of character, an indomitable spirit. In her research, psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth defined grit as “having stamina. Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is sticking with your future, and working really hard to make that future a reality.� That spirit of grit lives on at Fraser. Over the years we have dealt with funding threats to our programs, and ever-changing rules and regulations. But like our successful clients, we keep striving forward. Today Fraser directly serves over 9,000 clients with our healthcare, housing and education services, and indirectly reaches hundreds of thousands more. Although we continue to serve children and adults with a variety of special needs, 70% of our clients have autism. Fraser is recognized as an Autism Center of Excellence, and we continue to grow and innovate to achieve our goal that no family in Minnesota will have to travel more than 35 miles or 35 minutes statewide to receive Fraser services. Thanks to the families we serve who have grit, and thanks to all who believe in ours! Warm regards,

Diane S. Cross President and CEO

“I felt like this was the answer.” Max and Cameron were born extremely premature. When their parents, Charity and Ken, were finally able to take them home, “we couldn’t have visitors because the boys cried, but we also couldn’t go anywhere because the boys cried,” Charity said. Charity and Ken decided to take the twins to Fraser for an autism evaluation. They liked how the staff asked questions and observed the twins separately. “The evaluation was very detailed. We felt actively involved in the process,” Charity said. Fraser customizes each evaluation to fit the needs of the each family. “It’s a scary time and we just wanted answers,” Charity said. “Fraser eased our fears, and got the boys the help they needed.”

“I must never stop learning!” Like many teens and young adults with Asperger’s disorder, Devin was unprepared to navigate the work world. “I did not know how to create portfolios, dress professionally, or how to answer the most hated question in every job interview: tell me about yourself.” Devin enrolled in Fraser Adult Transition Services for help. Participants can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and then practice needed skills in a safe environment. He learned how to handle himself professionally, and how to communicate with others about his sensitivities. Now 23, Devin is finishing his associate degree and has an internship at Shoemake Company, a CPA firm in Burnsville, Minn. “The Fraser classes were intense, but the final product was worth the effort.”

“I believe there are issues that I am not equipped to handle.”

Like other six-year-old boys, Eli likes basketball and toy cars. He also has had issues with “temper tantrums and big explosions,” so much so that his parents, Jodi and Steve, had to hold him to calm him down. “We adopted Eli from Ethiopia when he was 10 months old, and we aren’t sure what he went through before the adoption,” Jodi said. Fraser Adoptive Family Support has helped Eli work through his behavioral issues. “There is always a possibility of mental health issues, whether a child is adopted or biological. Fraser therapists were a great resource, and we will go back if we need them.”

“It’s the key that opens the door.”

Caroline couldn’t understand why her young son Noah struggled when they would leave the house. It always turned into a hassle. She also noticed he had a speech delay.


When Caroline and her husband Paul received Noah’s autism diagnosis, they grieved, but quickly realized it was okay. Noah started receiving occupational and speech therapy, which are pediatric therapy services that can benefit children on the autism spectrum.

Noah began to develop coping and listening skills after working with therapists at Fraser Anoka. “We were amazed at his progress. They worked with Noah’s strengths, and he started to do things we’ve never been able to do with him before,” said Caroline.

“We didn’t have our own space.” Sean and Kelly are siblings who both have developmental disabilities. They have experienced quite a few living arrangements, with lots of other people that neither enjoyed. Through Fraser Supportive Living, a housing program that customizes services to the individual, they were recently able to move into an apartment together. They are now happier and better adjusted.   After a busy day, they can now come home and relax. Kelly enjoys cleaning and caring for her dolls. Sean likes listening to music and playing his guitar. “You can tell they’re relaxed and comfortable living here,” a Fraser staff person said.

“The sky is the limit.” Danielle immigrated to the United States from Ghana when she was 10 years old. She has lived in foster care for most of her time in this country, and was diagnosed with a developmental disability, adding to her challenges. Danielle connected with Fraser through Contracted Case Management, a service that helps people with disabilities navigate the social service system. Together with her Fraser Case Manager, Danielle has been able to work toward her goals, find housing, and hold a stable job working in the community. After lots of effort, Danielle also recently passed the test to become a U.S. citizen. “I’m so proud of what it represents,” Danielle said. “Becoming a U.S. citizen means everything to me.”

“It felt like a sense of community.”

Kim and Robert were looking for childcare that could handle their daughter’s medical needs, but also make her feel like a typical child. Evey has a genetic skin condition that requires correctlyadministered ointment, bandages and eye drops. 16 • FRASER 2012 ANNUAL REPORT

They found Fraser School, and liked that there was a Health Services Coordinator on site. “Fraser School staff had a plan right from the start,” said Kim. “They were all working together to provide the right care for Evey.”

Fraser School is inclusive, with special-needs children and typical-needs children in the same classrooms. “Evey isn’t seen as different,” said Robert. “She has lots of friends, and plays and learns like any other little girl.”
