President’s Message Do-All, Inc. is changing the way services are provided to individuals with disabilities in our community. In just over 3 years we have grown from supporting 90 – 100 individuals annually with 27 staff to an organization serving over 7000 individuals with a staff of 72 in 7 different locations. We are creating the services of tomorrow today and changing the lives of the people we serve. As we continue to thrive on the difference we are making for those we serve we know there is more to do. We must keep passionate for the mission and continue to develop lasting relationships with community leaders that will help us continue this journey so one day our services may not be needed.
