July Executive Director’s Message

Dear FACT Family,

It is both an honor and a privilege to join FACT as your new Executive Director.  I am humbled at the opportunity to serve in this position and to work with and alongside each of you to provide the very best of service to our clients.

For more than 17 years, FACT has provided help and hope to individuals with disabling conditions while nourishing the traditional values of community integration, self-advocacy, and tailored solutions for our clients, which has made FACT so effective.  My commitment as your new Executive Director will be to uphold each of these values, in addition to leading the charge in championing FACT’s long-held commitment of providing exceptional and timely person-centered care to every adult, family and child that utilizes our services.

Last year, with your support, FACT served more than 300 individuals, and yet the need for our services is ever-growing.  While many of our families may undoubtedly be feeling alarmed due to the ongoing debate in Washington regarding healthcare protections for the most vulnerable, please rest assured that regardless of the outcome, FACT is poised and ever-ready to continue serving as a fundamental resource and beacon of hope for families striving for an improved quality of life.

A special thank you to outgoing Interim Director, Marc Haupert for effectively positioning the organization for continued success.  As I prepare to take the reins, I enthusiastically look forward to working with our Board of Directors, our partners, FACT’s generous donors and our dedicated staff, to continue to help safeguard FACT as the go-to-source for those seeking cutting edge therapies for their loved ones.  FACT continues to serve as a leading pioneer in helping to make the impossible possible and helping to reshape how people with disabilities are perceived.  By way of your dedication and commitment, FACT clients continue to excel, reach strategic milestones, and fulfill lifelong dreams that many once may have thought were impossible, including graduating high school and transitioning to college, securing employment and even starting their own families.   FACT helps to make the impossible possible.  YOU help to make the impossible possible.

Thank you for your extraordinary service and for helping to make such a HUGE difference in the lives of FACT clients and helping them to reach their fullest potential!

Dr. Felita Jones
