Staff of the National Adult Day Services Association, a Washington-based nonprofit organization supplying educational services and products to the adult day services industry, worked to reorganize the association, raise its profile nationally and make it self-sustaining.
Previously, the association had been a constituent unit of the National Council on Aging, a nonprofit national network of organizations, also Washington based.
- Staff achieved self-sustaining status for the association during the grant period, with operating funds from:
- Membership dues.
- The profit from annual educational conferences for members. Staff organized two such conferences in 2003 and 2004.
- Development and sale of new and existing training products, resources and services.
- An expanded drive for donor contributions.
- Staff hired a full-time director of training and education to manage educational, training and technical assistance requests of association members.
- According to former association Executive Director Lisa Gables, association staff played a role in securing the first regulatory review of the adult day care industry in the United States. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation conducted the review, which HHS released in August 2005.
- Staff established a technical assistance hotline for members.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported this work from February 2002 through December 2004 with a grant of $398,535.
