A Year of Continued
Growth, Efficiency
and Effectiveness

Dear Friends,

In 2011, Unity Care celebrated 19 years of serving our community’s at-risk foster youth and families. As an
organization, we continued to feel the impact from the nation’s economic crisis. However, it is with pride we
share that through ongoing strategic planning efforts, being mindful of our expenses, leveraging support
services from the community and increasing efficiency of service delivery, the agency has survived these
financial challenges.

At Unity Care, we are doing what it takes to give our families comprehensive mental health, and supportive
services as well as connections to community resources that make a difference in how they participate in the
world. In this report, you’ll find a few life-changing stories, fundraising initiatives and an in-depth look at agency
services provided from July 2011 through June 2012. We hope you are inspired by our children’s and families’
ability to overcome obstacles.

Unity Care impacts the lives of over 3,500 at-risk children in our community. We are deeply humbled to look
back at all of the amazing accomplishments we have achieved and challenges that we have overcome because
of your heartfelt support. We value your faith, and confidence enabling us to remain focused on our mission.

Sincerely,

André Chapman Carl Agers, II

Founder, President and CEO Chairman of the Board

Darcie was referred to Unity Care’s ILP program, but
- Rudolf Steiner lacked any interest in participating. She was failing
her junior year of high school and saw that she may
not graduate with her friends and became interested
in what ILP could offer. Staff connected her with a
tutor and helped her consider creating a resume to
challenge her to build her own future. Her ILP
counselor encouraged Darcie to take advantage of
any of the resources that were offered to her.
Ultimately, she found confidence in her counselor
and shared her feelings of discontent with her current
caregiver as well as the fear of her impending
emancipation from the system. Darcie was advised
to seek out a new living situation since she would
soon turn 18. She found a church member who
allowed her to live rent-free under the condition that
she worked and attended school. Staff helped her
find a job and an internship.

Darcie continues to work with staff on her goals, and
has even saved up enough money to buy a used car.
We couldn’t be more proud than to see Darcie raise
her GPA and successfully graduate along with her
classmates!

withdrawn, often cried and ran away for a days at a
time. -Stacey Murillo,
Facility Manager
The Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) team
worked closely with Eddie to get a better understand-
ing of his needs. He often isolated himself from
interaction with others, paced back and forth and
relied heavily on staff to provide basic care. It took
some time for the team to develop a stronger
relationship with him, but eventually they learned
that Eddie’s behaviors resulted from depression,
anxiety and lack of organization skills.

With this discovery, the team created an action plan
to address the identified behavioral problems.
Eddie started to show major improvements. He
made an effort to interact with his peers, as well as
during outings and activities. He also realized that
he was emancipating from the system in a year, so
he really needed to learn how to take care of himself.
He decided to tag along with staff during grocery
shopping trips and he learned how to budget and use
coupons. He also started to focus and show interest
in school.

“Please think of the children first. If you ever have anything to do with their entertainment,
their food, their toys, their custody, their day or night care, their health care, their educa-
tion – listen to the children, learn about them, learn from them. Think of the children first.”

- Fred Rogers
