Posted Oct 2, 2017 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JESSICA!!! Our CEO reflects on her first five years of service to Special Citizens: Dear Special Citizens Supporters: It's hard to believe that five years have already passed since I joined this remarkable organization. Even harder to believe are the numerous accomplishments that we've been able to achieve together and the many milestones we've marked along the way. Whether it's the opening of a new home and increasing our network of support, or the beginning of a new initiative that seeks to broaden our reach and expand upon our mission, each step that we've taken together has served to teach and inspire me. Looking back on my first days, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but what I found was beyond any of my wildest expectations. One of the first things I can recall is being motivated and energized by our truly incredible and hardworking staff, who manage our homes and who ensure that our day programs run smoothly while offering life changing support to each and every person we support. And 1,826 days later, that is one thing that has remained a constant. While every day hasn't always been easy, the inspiration that I'm able to draw from our staff and the critical work that we do together is what lies at the heart of why I'm so incredibly proud to lead this amazing organization. With the support of Special Citizens leadership and all of our staff, we have worked together to accomplish some pretty incredible things. I hope you're as excited as I am by the challenges and the unlimited potential for success and meaningful impact that these projects/initiatives both possess and embody. As I continue to take this time to reflect on the last five years and look ahead to all that lies ahead, I want to thank each and every one of you that has been a part of the experience; because without you, none of it would have been possible. And as we move onward to greater heights and toward even more benchmarks of success, I look forward to continuing my journey with you. Best, Jessica Zufall-Guberman, Ph.D. Chief Executive Officer
