At our recent Annual Board Meeting, we decided to discontinue The Concerto Project's capital campaign. The generosity, goodwill and faith that you gave to the vision of our mission has inspired us deeply over the course of this past year, and for this we are so grateful!
The decision to suspend the campaign is in recognition of the limitations of our resources: time, personnel and funds. We have no doubt that should we persist for another five years we would arrive at our goal. We are choosing instead to focus on what we have accomplished these past three years by way of the development of a viable program model.
The work we have done, has and will continue, to benefit families of young adults on the spectrum even if we don't have a local program, and we are proceeding with plans to identify our next steps.
"As a parent of a young adult on the spectrum, I know the challenges... This well-planned program has financial stability, professional integrity and immense personal value; it will bring much to both Orcas Island and the nation."
The Concerto Project was begun in 2013 to create a much-needed living and learning residential transition program serving the greater Seattle area, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond. Our mission: To provide vocational, social, and practical skills necessary for engaged and sustainable living for young adults with developmental challenges.
The Pacific Northwest has few resources to meet the increasing needs of these young adults to develop the skills and confidence to transition to adulthood.
