14 May Vail Place 2021 Annual Report
We are proud to share our 2021 Annual Report with you, highlighting our many accomplishments during yet another challenging year. The resilience of Vail Place is a testament to the commitment and compassion of our financial supporters, our partner agencies, our volunteers, our staff and those we serve. It hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had to adjust our processes and make hard decisions. We’ve asked more from our supporters than ever. But the result of all that effort is undeniable.
As Vail Place celebrated our 40th Anniversary, our community really came together supporting us as we adapted and achieved the many triumphs shared in the past year’s report. It’s a sign of our fortitude and pioneering spirit that year after year we find ourselves adding pages to capture our many updates and highlights.
As 2021 brought record numbers of individuals needing additional mental health support to our doors, we were diligent and worked hard to ensure we connected with everyone who reached out to Vail Place. We created an effective hybrid model as we returned to in-person programming while maintaining and integrating virtual options. It was a heavy lift, but as we head into 2022 with bright eyes to see what each person needs and wise eyes to help everyone succeed. This is only possible with your support and partnership!
Over the course of the past year, the unexpected challenges we faced resulted in a $200,000 gap in our 2022 budget. As we work to close the gap and meet our increased fundraising goals for this year, we hope you will continue to support Vail Place.
“I like the support I get from Vail Place and know that I’m not dealing with mental health by myself.” -James, Clubhouse Member
