  COVER  Stephanie is stayin’ cool at WindReach Farm ANNUAL REPORT 2011-12  ANNUAL REPORT  2011-12 02   ANDY’S ROAD  TO 10K  Each year I am asked to define my personal outcomes. I am unable to speak so I use sign language to communicate what I enjoy doing and what goals I plan to achieve in the coming year. The staff and I enjoy walking, we walk over 4km to the Community Living Oshawa/Clarington (CLOC) office daily.At my yearly outcome meeting, I was asked if I wanted to participate in Run for the Diamond in Uxbridge. It is a 5km or 10km run or trail walk at Wooden Sticks Golf Course. Since I was al-ready walking over 4km to the Community Living Oshawa/Clarington office with no huge effort, I thought to myself, why not?We started preparing each day for the big walk. I felt really good about completing the 10km walk but wasn’t sure if Nicole (my support staff) would be ready. I was dedicated to the goal of participating in the walk.On the morning of the walk, my alarm clock sounded. All the preparation was now going to be put to the test. Once my walking buddy Nicole showed up with some fan support, we were off. We arrived at the registration area and were all  ANNUAL REPORT  2011-12 03 Foreground:Andy hydrates prior to the 10K Background:Andy and Nicole cross the finish line set up to go. Then we were called to start our warm up exercises at the start/finish line. We were off! Nicole kept me focused on the task at hand until I heard we were done. At the end of the walk my medal was placed around my neck. I was full of joy and excitement knowing I did it!Seeing Nicole proud of me and our cheering sec-tion made me feel like a superstar. All the effort Ihad put into this walk was worth it! None of this would have happened without the support of my staff and their dedication in helping me achieve my goal. Thanks Nicole for volunteering to walk with me. I am ready for the next challenge! Established in 1953, Community Living Oshawa/Clarington is dedi-cated to supporting people with developmental disabilities so that they may live full and active lives within our community. OUR MISSION Community Living Oshawa/Clarington is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the achievement of personal outcome measures for people with developmental disabilities and is com-mitted to service excellence. OUR VISION “To live in a community where everyone belongs, is listened to, is treated fairly and is able to make informed choices.”  ANNUAL REPORT  2011-12 04 On behalf of our Board of Directors and Senior Management team, we would like to express our appreciation to all of our employees for once again providing the highest quality of service to those we support over this past year. As a result of everyone’s efforts, our Association continues to thrive in a challenging and ever changing developmental services sector in Ontario. It is our pleasure to present the 2011/2012 Annual Report for Community Living Oshawa/Clarington. This report is a great opportunity to recognize the accomplishments and celebrate our success of the past year.With the economic downturn and changing trends in the social service arena, there is a forecast for a continuing decline in funding for the not for profit sector. These decreases in funding makes it necessary for agencies such as CLOC to adjust and restructure resources to best meet the changing needs of the organization and the people it serves. This has impacted negatively upon the agency infrastructure resulting in a lean and often over extended administration. Orga-nizations need to show that they can effectively and efficiently manage human service environ-ments, technologies, and personnel. At the same time they need to produce positive outcomes for people served. CLOC’s strategic plan states that “the organization will expand and increase sup-ports and services to people with developmental disabilities by thirty percent (30%) through influ-ential leadership and a commitment to organi-zational excellence, exceeding all standards and measures of excellence with innovation, flexibility, responsiveness, collaboration and evaluation.” This strategic direction is directly linked to the increased expectations placed on not for profit organizations to be lean, responsive, agile, quality focused, and accountable. CLOC’s ultimate objec-tive is to be a leader in the transformed devel-opmental services sector and to be the “service provider and employer of choice” within Durham Region.The strategic plan that CLOC embarked on in 2008 intentionally takes into account the above discussed drivers for change to position CLOC as a leader in the field of Developmental Services, enhancing our ability to respond to the rapid changes so that we can continue to be a strong and vibrant organization well into the future.
