Dear Friend, Donors, Volunteers and Supporters of SARAH,
This year, SARAH celebrates 60 years of service to people with differing abilities who live in Connecticut. In 1957, three shoreline families – the Spencer's, the McNeil's and the Reinhardsen's gathered together and passed around a coffee can. Each family added $2.00 and from that first meeting, SARAH was born. Today, the SARAH Family of Agencies - SARAH, Inc., SARAH SENECA and SARAH Tuxis - supports over 650 individuals and their families.

We are pleased to present to you the SARAH Foundation Annual Report which includes financial information and donor acknowledgments for 2016. In response to decreased funding from the state and federal governments we have published a smaller version to save on print and mailing expenses. A longer version is available on our website that includes additional donor acknowledgments and volunteers.

In honor of the 60th Anniversary of SARAH, there is a story about the Hartigan's, a longtime SARAH family and their support of the SARAH Endowment Fund. The SARAH Gala was a fabulous event this year along with the SARAH Golf Classic and we are so grateful to the volunteer committees that worked so hard on these events. There were many other wonderful events this year including the Guilford Education Association Readathon, the Ion Bank Cheshire Half Marathon & 5K and the Summer Breeze Ride for Autism.

In addition, the Annual Report includes a letter from the SARAH Foundation Board and Board President, CJ Griffith that discusses the Connecticut fiscal crisis and its impact on SARAH and so many non-profits in Connecticut.

We hope you enjoy the stories about how gifts from donors such as you along with corporate donations have enriched the lives of SARAH participants. If you have any questions about SARAH or ways in which you may make a donation, please feel free to contact us at the SARAH Foundation at 203-453-6531.

Warm Regards,

CJ Griffith
Board President

Ken Alberti
Executive Director
