ARI is proud to have been born and raised in Stamford, Connecticut. We are firmly rooted in this community--which supports our work and to which we contribute--for example, by participating in the "Keep Stamford Beautiful" initiative. We are fortunate to have wonderful friends, family and various investors in all sectors of life at ARI. We are a job training and placement center, mental disabilities, as well as individuals returning to the job market from illness or injury.We are an employer, with a loyal staff who are among the best trained and qualified in our field. We are asked more and more frequently to be a provider of transition services for teenagers with disabilities moving from school to work. We are property owners, tax-payers, and patrons in the city of Stamford and in the State of Connecticut. And, right now, we are part of a service industry which is changing more rapidly than at any time in the last 25 years. We've recognized the need to develop more job opportunities for persons with disabilities together with local businesses. ARI has already down-sized its Production (Workshop) Services by over 25% in one year, while creating our first "enclave" with a major national employer. At the same time we have helped individuals we serve become responsible and contributing members of the community. front of this effort.

Our industry began after World War II when its seminal organizations were founded by a few devoted parents. At that time, no services were available in the Stamford community for children with mental retardation. Proudly, ARI is now approaching its 50th Anniversary in 2002. It's a time for both introspection and celebration. It's a time to challenge ourselves to "push the limits" on behalf of those we have been called upon to serve. It is a time, in particular, when government is looking more and more to the volunteer, nonprofit sector to provide a wide range of services with less dependence on tax-revenues. We must be creative, innovative, and good stewards. We must raise funds more aggressively, and be better business managers. We must adapt to these new demands, if we want to celebrate our 100th Anniversary. We ask for your help. By creating job opportunities. By helping us develop affordable housing options. By volunteering or sharing your professional expertise. By talking about ARI and the We thank you, in advance, for giving in all of these ways so that ARI can continue to provide a wider spectrum of services than the State of Connecticut supports. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do our work in the tradition in which we were founded. With respect for every individual, with complete commitment to their success, and with constant optimism. work we do to neighbors, local officials, and the media. And, by always continuing to offer financial support.

Both income and expenditures increased this fiscal year. This has been a time during which ARI ran a small deficit, as we invested in our physical plant and prepared for future growth. ARI is committed to expanding and improving its services and we will be developing our fundraising efforts in order to supplement the funding received from the State of Connecticut.
