As we approach our 20th anniversary, Kadima faces both an
exciting and challenging time. Despite unpredictable economic stres-
sors and political unrest, generous gifts from members of our commu-
nity have enabled Kadima to open five new homes, bringing us to a
total of nineteen living environments to provide Kadima clients with
stability, safety and a sense of ownership and pride; qualities so
often foreign to those with psychiatric disabilities. Our clients have
many opportunities to live productive and gratifying lives. With an
87% employment rate, Kadima clients experience a variety of activi-
ties and support services to ensure a sense of productivity.
Through the generosity of Kadima supporters and the expert and
caring Kadima staff, each client lives in an environment and commu-
nity to maintain dignity, respect, and individual values.
In an effort to expand needed services, we held our first annual
golf event this past June. Proceeds from this event allowed us to
forge ahead with plans for the Lois and Milton Zussman Drop-In
Center. The facility will not only encourage socialization and new
skills, but it will be a therapeutic wellness center focusing on healing
and peace of mind. Watch your mail for information on this year's
golf outing scheduled for July 14th. Join us for a fun-filled day and
help this dream become a reality.
Kadima is fortunate to have an active, dedicated and innovative
Board of Directors. Our many committees are engaged in a variety

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S REPORT
— JANETTE SHALLAL

In 2002, Kadima's Board of Directors developed a strategic plan. The
five key priority goals that were identified are:
• Communication — improve internal and external communications
• Leadership — develop knowledgeable and active Board members
• Marketing — market Kadima's mission and services
• Funding — diversify and expand funding sources
• Education and Advocacy — educate and advocate for greater under-
standing of psychiatric disabilities.
As we implement this exciting five-year plan, we are sure that those with
psychiatric disabilities will find the quality of their lives further enhanced as
we follow each step of the strategic plan and that Kadima will grow in
strength and effectiveness to meet the growing needs of our community.

of responsibilities and events. We achieve out-
standing and professional results with committees
that range from finances to planning client activi-
ties. We would love and welcome the participa-
tion of the community in our agency. All our com-
mittees are open to non-board members. Please

Despite our many achievements, never have the

so great. One in every five families is touched by Merle Schwartz
President
a loved one with mental illness! Everyday
Kadima receives phone calls from agencies, fami-
lies and clients desperate for the excellent services Kadima is known
to provide. This comes at the same time we are experiencing mas-
sive cuts in public funding. It is essential that you, our caring com-
munity, recognize and respond to this crisis in the system.
Just as those with mental illness and their loved ones depend upon
and treasure the services of Kadima, we at Kadima feel the same
way about our supporters. In this time of uncertainty, we are fortu-
nate to have dedicated and generous supporters. We thank you
from the bottom of our hearts and invite other concerned and caring
individuals to join our grateful and devoted family.
