Promise & Possibility

Dear CSI Family,

Welcoming 2021 comes with a focus on opening doors and crossing bridges. The past year of unprecedented challenges has taught many lessons and brought many gifts of learning, collaborations, and friendships. We have faced tragedies and challenges never imagined. As we cross over to 2021, we are filled with a sense of hope and rejuvenation.   Our New Year arrives with many new opportunities for the people CSI supports to avoid segregated group day programs, and grow from opportunities that are truly focused on their dreams and visions. We will refocus our strategies to ensure each person is given the support needed to be successful in their endeavors and grow to reach their visions.

Bridging into the New Year comes with renewed hope to contain the pandemic and provide science based options to help keep all of our CSI Family safe and healthy, growing as CSI leaders and influencing change through our ripples of influence in our communities. Vaccinating our teams will help provide increased safety and will be a primary focus of the beginning of the New Year. This opportunity will hopefully allow us to move forward to ensure every person CSI supports is empowered to realize their dreams to live a meaningful life in their community.

Our values of Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Compassion, Accountability, and Perseverance have guided us through the most difficult year and will help CSI to rebuild and grow as we cross the bridge into 2021.   I thank you for your support, encouragement, and commitment to help each person CSI supports to find happiness and assisting our fellow Team members and our greater CSI Family.

With Thanks and Gratitude, I wish you a Happy New Year!
Janet Butler, President/CEO
