Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of Seven Hills Foundation is to promote and encourage the empowerment of people with significant challenges so that each may pursue their highest possible degree of personal well-being and independence.

Background Statement

In 1951, a handful of parents in Central Massachusetts began gathering to ask questions about caring for their disabled children and to advocate with local public schools to offer early intervention services. In 1953, the parents incorporated themselves as the Worcester Area Association for Retarded Children. With that modest grassroots effort, the organization known today as Seven Hills Foundation was born.

Seven Hills Foundation is one of the largest health and human service providers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Seven Hills was recently named for the third year a Top Growth Non Profit in Central Massachusetts by the Worcester Business Journal. Program accreditations include the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is a national accrediting body for rehabilitation organizations. Seven Hills Foundation consistently ranks within the top three percent of all rehabilitation organizations nationally through CARF, as well as from the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services which awarded Seven Hills Two Years with Distinction certification-the only large provider to ever receive this distinction for three consecutive, two-year cycles. Seven Hills Pediatric Center recently received 5 out of 5 stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.

Impact Statement

Seven Hills Foundation is the umbrella organization for 11 Affiliate 501 c3 non-profit organizations employing 3,600 professional staff and serving 28,000 clients (ages 0-90) at over 160 sites across the Commonwealth, Cape and Islands, as well as Rhode Island. Programs and services support children and adults with physical, emotional, developmental, social, substance abuse, and other significant life challenges. Through residential and day programs, school-based services, supported employment, and child and family services, individuals work toward living more autonomously and participating more fully in their lives. Clinical services offer a range of supports including behavioral health counseling, substance abuse treatment, and medication and drug-free assistive therapies. A full range of medical and allied health services are provided in our pediatric nursing facility, community homes for people who are medically fragile, and in our day programs. All supports are provided to clients at all income levels and services are not denied based on inability to pay.

Needs Statement

Funding is needed to support programs and program enhancements that are not currently funded through existing contracts and revenue streams. These include: Sports, Recreation, and Leisure Programs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island; Assistive Technology for Children and Adults with Disabilities; Behavioral and Mental Health Program Expansion, including residential; Workforce Training; Food and Clothing Pantries in Worcester and New Bedford, Massachusetts; HIV-AIDs Prevention, Education and Outreach in Southeastern Massachusetts; and Oral Health Clinic Development in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
