Summary


Mission StatementMORE »

Project Independence promotes civil rights for people with developmental disabilities through services which expand independence and choice. Since 1977, Project Independence has provided adults with developmental disabilities throughout Orange County the choice of living, working and recreating with their nondisabled peers. We have been setting the standard for exemplary support, as a nationally recognized organization. We provide integrated work opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities, autism and related disorders and our community living supports were the first in the state. Project Independence promotes access to a ‘valued life’ for all people in our community by sharing resources, collaborating with peers and promoting healthy communities in general, not just clients. Access to these basic civil rights is possible because of the promise of California’s landmark legislation The Lanterman Act. Our Staff, Board and volunteers are passionate about what we do and how we do it. As advocates, first and foremost, we are here to work for the people in our programs, providing assistance only when necessary, encouraging self-sufficiency and personal growth.

Background Statement

Developmental disabilities occur early in life and have a life-long impact on cognitive development, adaptive behavior, and learning. Such disabilities include intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, neurological impairment, and autism. However, adults with these type of disabilities not only have the desire to live full and independent lives, but also the capability to be productive members of society. In response to this basic civil right, Project Independence was founded in 1977 and currently offers comprehensive services in Orange County to people with developmental disabilities in their homes, at work, and in the community. It all started with a group of parents who wanted more for their adult children with disabilities; believing that they could live independently, with the right support. From this belief, the first Independent Living program in Orange County was created. In 2007 two successful organizations-Vantage & Project Independence-united with their shared vision that life should contain the same elements of choice, integration, and opportunity for all people, regardless of disability. Since then our mission has remained the same: To promote civil rights for people with developmental disabilities through services which expand independence and choice. We now offer Independent Living, Supported Employment, Behavior Supports, and Community Day services to over 700 people in Orange County. Dedicated staff, volunteers, and supporters are committed to partnering with Project Independence to provide excellent services that enhance the lives of the people we serve.  

Impact Statement

Accomplishments:
* Healthy Living Choice project developed in collaboration with University of California, Irvine.  Student  volunteeers designed a comprehensive program design for incentivizing, implementing and tracking a fitness and nutrition program.
* A new housing project, Vista del Rio opened in Santa Ana, enabled 8 people we support to live in a beautiful setting.
* The Social Security Administration chose Project Independence to manage Work Incentive Planning Assistance contract for Orange, San Diego, Imperial  and parts of Los Angeles Counties.
*  Support provided by Project Independence helps over 700 people live, work and play within their communities. 

Needs Statement

 On-going needs:
1.Core capacity- Through the last 5 years Project Independence has lost funding for both Independent Living and Supported Employment through rate cuts.  In order to sustain these vital programs we have had to cut back on administrative functions. To meet the challenges of the changing needs of people and families of Orange County it is imperative we expand our fundraising and technology capacity. $100,000 is needed for staff, hardware, software and staff training.
2. Volunteers- Expansion of our Board of Directors by 3 people with expertise in organizational development, fundraising, or technology. 45 people needed for Walk for Independence for team development, client recognition awards and fitness partners.
3. Nutrition Kits - Development of “Stop Light” nutrition guidelines will help people sort food into categories of green, yellow and red. Labeling food that can be eaten often such as fruits and vegetables, sometimes like pasta, breads and diary or rarely such as cakes or cookies. These 200 kits must be assembled, distributed and reviewed individually with each of our Independent Living clients. Cost- $1,400  Volunteers - 20 to 35.
4.  Tablets, iPads, laptops- $40,000
5. Access to Adventure-Project Independence is aggressively generating support to reinstate our outdoor activity program. Kayaking, camping, baseball, travel, theater and so much more add to the quality of life for our clients. 

CEO Statement

As a community, when we decide to support and include those who might need a little extra help to build an independent life, our community grows stronger.  We would not have the honor to serve those we do without our community partners. We thank you.
Debra Marsteller, CEO/President, Project Independence 

Board Chair Statement

I work with many wonderful organizations throughout Orange County. Having the honor to witness the compassionate staff at Project Independence walk beside those who might need a little extra help, has made it an organization that I am very proud to be part of.  My time spent on the board has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure and I look forward to helping the board take it into the next 40 years.

Programs


Community Day Services

 Our Day Program provides employment, volunteer opportunities and community integration to people who have significant developmental disabilities. Services include placement at appropriate jobs with 100% support, opportunities to volunteer with other nonprofit agencies, and enrollment in community college or adult education classes. We also provide our Harmony Program, which serves seniors (50 years and older) with developmental disabilities. Individuals may participate between one to five days per week depending on their needs. Activities take place in community senior centers and include social, health, fitness and memory focused routines to maximize individual capabilities.

 

Budget  $1,855,888.00

Program Short-Term Success 
Short term success is measured individually based on Individual Program Plans.  Collectively we measure number of people working at or above minimum wage, hours of paid and volunteer work, and overall success of IPP objectives.
Program Long-Term Success  Having friends, a job and a home of your own are all intrinsic to a healthy, happy life. But when you’re an adult with a developmental disability, these opportunities may be out of reach.  Long term we envision communities that accept and embrace people with disabilities and every employer hires and supports people with disabilities as a matter of course.  We live in a complex world.  How much easier for the non disabled community to embace people with different skills and perspectives rather than expecting people with disabilities to change.  No other sub group is expected to change in order to be accepted. Our people are different, not less.
Program Success Monitored By 
*   Annual Satisfaction Surveys
*   Program Audits by Regional Center of Orange County
*   Individual Person Centered Plans

Positive Behavior Support Day Services

 OurPositive Behavior Support Program serves adults with developmental disabilities who are 22 years of age or older and who require a 1:3, 1:2, or 1:1 staff ratio. The program is designed to serve adults who exhibit behaviors which prevent them from successfully functioning within the community, vocational, or recreational settings without close supervision. Upon acceptance to the program, each individual goes through a 30 day assessment period utilizingFunctional Analysis of Behavior Assessment, Learning Modality Assessment, and a Quality of Life Assessment. After collecting and analyzing the data, a Positive Behavior Support plan is developed to break existing patterns of behavior and to teach new behaviors so that he or she can realize their potential within the community.

Program Long-Term Success 
35 years ago when we first began services to support individuals moving from state hospitals, autism was rare and almost always meant a lifetime of institutionalization.  Now autism is no longer rare and thankfully no longer a life sentence to a developmental center.  Our long term goal at PI is to help develop communities that embrace individuals with different perspectives and ways of communicating.  We hope by collaborating with schools, universities families and advocacy groups we can together develop rich and dignified integrated community supports that celebrates differences.

Independent and Supported Living Services

 Our Independent Living program helps clients live on their own in apartments and other properties throughout Orange County. With help from staff, clients learn how to budget, plan meals, grocery shop, cook, handle housekeeping tasks and do laundry. Project Independence staff helps ensure that our clients’ needs are met while encouraging and fostering independence and choice.  Supported Living Services are available, as needed, on a limited basis for people who require more intensive support.

Program Long-Term Success 
People living, working and playing alongside their nondisabled peers was the promise of the Lanterman Act.  Landmark legislation 45 years ago that set California apart from the rest of the country.  We still believe in that promise and see the day when all institutional care is a thing of the past and people live in environments that we all favor.  A place where individual needs are respected, privacy is a given and choice in food, friends and lifestyle is guaranteed.
Program Success Monitored By  *  Annual Satisfaction Surveys

*  Individual Person Centered Plans

*  Comparisons to baseline on individual objectives

Examples of Program Success 
For 35 years, people with developmental disabilities have successfully lived in their own apartments and condos. Our success is measured by the success of the people we serve.  Realizing the dream of a home of their own is only limited by affordable housing in Orange County.  Helping John budget so he can afford Christmas presents for his family and co-workers and working through the maze of benefits and housing regulations may mean the difference between success and failure.  Having PI there to navigate is the conerstone of his success.  Staff provide assistance if and when help is needed.

Supported Employment

Since the inception of Supported Employment in 1986, society has made tremendous progress toward the realization that people with disabilities have a wide array of abilities which bring value to employers and to the community. While it was once unheard of to expect that a person with a developmental disability had the skills necessary to compete in the work force, today people are realizing their potential to work in jobs as varied as the overall job market.

 

The Project Independence Supported Employment program is based on the idea that, in creating a successful job match, a person with a developmental disability can do the job he or she was hired to do. Our job is to provide whatever the person needs to be successful, from extra training, establishing priorities and creating task schedules, to educating employees at the job site and building natural supports.

Program Long-Term Success 
 
The Gallup Organization’s book Wellbeing: The FiveEssential Elements by Tom Rath and Jim Harter describes five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives: Career Wellbeing, Social Wellbeing, Financial Wellbeing,Physical Wellbeing, and Community Wellbeing. The authors report “Career Wellbeing is probably the most  underestimated of the elements. When you ask people what affects their wellbeing most, they think of health and wealth.Even though people spend more of their waking hours at work than anywhere else, people underestimate how work influences their overall wellbeing and daily experience… work is not only a core part of your time use on a day-to-day basis, but also of your identity as a person... Work is crucial to how we relate to people and evaluate our lives at a very basic level.” 
Full employment:  A job for all who want to work. 
Program Success Monitored By 
Project Independence consistently achieves 3 year accreditation, the highest level of accreditation from CARF, Commision of Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities, an international watchdog agency. 
Examples of Program Success 
Sinnce 1986 PI has provided individualized and group employment for up to 200 people, the most of any one program in California.  In spite of under funding, a 10% rate cut and the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression the services Project Independence continues to exceed expectation of employers, funders and families and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Work Incentive Planning Assistance

What Is WIPA?
Work Incentive Planning and Assistance is a grant awarded by The Social Security Administration to local organizations to provide work incentive planning services for beneficiaries in cash payment status for Supplemental Security Income (SSI),
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), or Social Security Childhood Disability Benefits (SSCDB), previously called Disabled Adult Child (SSDAC).

Who Is Eligible to Receive Services?
Anyone who is currently receiving cash payments under one or more of the
following programs: Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Social Security Childhood Disability Benefits (SSCDB) – also known as Social Security Disabled Adult Child (SSDAC) AND is either: Working, Looking for work, or Thinking about looking for work.
Budget  $300,000.00

Population Served People/Families with of People with Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success 
Outcomes desired for this contract to be successful include assisting the most people to bridge between dependence on benefits and work. 75% of beneficiaries will be referred to appropriate community resources. 100% of beneficiaries will receive sufficient information to make informed decisions about returning to work. We are projecting 60% of beneficiaries will return to work as a result of participation in the WIPA program.
Program Long-Term Success 
 As people gain experience and confidence in certain areas, services are adjusted to meet people’s evolving needs, to foser on-going progress toward independence.
Work Incentive Planning Analysis– we meet in person with beneficiaries to explain what impact work earnings have on each benefit received.
  • xplain what work incentives are available- including learning how to keep Medi-Cal, and/or Medicare benefits for an extended period while working. Other incentives include IRWE’s (Impairment Related Work Expenses), Subsidy (Job Coaching, etc.), and many more.

     

  • Pass Plans are Plans for Self sufficiency and a tool to help bridge the vocational divide for people who want to work but cant afford to jeopardise their benefits.

     

 

Program Success Monitored By 
The Social Security Administration tracks all case notes and beneficiary report details through secure software and hardware.  The contract is dependent on successful and thorough program administration and follow up.
Examples of Program Success 
WIPA success is demonstrated by the number of people who are assisted to return to employment and terminate or reduce cash benefits. After serveral interations, SSA presented a continuation of this program to Congress which agreed that these services are valuable to beneficiaries.  Congress agreed to another two year contract with the intention of making this a permanent
resource for beneficiaries resource for beneficiaries.
