President & Chairman MessageAnnual Meeting | November 21st, 2019
Despite our region’s amazing renaissance, there are still a significant number of families and individuals, struggling daily to become self-sufficient. Most recently, the Health & Human Services sectors have been impacted by regulatory changes and the adoption of new payment models aimed at, “improving health outcomes, increasing access, and reducing costs”. The Commonwealth of MA is seeking to do business with fewer providers, as a way to achieve economies of scale. All of these challenges are placing a major strain on CENTRO, and our ability to effectively meet the changing needs of our clients. However, our direct connection to local communities, our unequalled commitment to serve people of color and new immigrants, the support of our Board and other stake-holders like you, and the creativity and diligence of our staff, are surely proving to be a very effective in this new environment.
In addition to the growth, development and achievements reached during the past 12 years, we continue to grow in other ways. Today, CENTRO serves over 8,700 families in 52 cities and towns in MA; has almost 60 employees from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds; and has a total annual operating budget of over $8.4M. Most recently, CENTRO received a Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditation for three years. In addition, as part of CENTRO’s Strategic Planning Process and consistent with our vision, “To create a fully-integrated, multi-cultural, multi-linguistic health and human services delivery system, while strengthening our financial and long-term sustainability”; we have continued to explore ways to build capacity and economic strength. It is CENTRO’s intention not just to survive; but to thrive.
None of this would be possible without our clients, our staff, and your support. We thank you in advance for your continued commitment to ensure CENTRO’s success.
