2023 TECH Annual Report | Letter from the CEO

June 3, 2024

Dear Friends,

As we reflect on the past year, I am filled with immense gratitude and pride for what we have accomplished together at TECH.

Last year marked a significant milestone in our journey as we celebrated our 50th anniversary. Half a century of dedication, compassion, and service to our community is a remarkable achievement, and it is a testament to the enduring impact of our mission.

Our founders laid the foundation for our organization with a profound belief that individuals with disabilities deserve opportunities and support to achieve their fullest potential. Since our inception, TECH has remained steadfast in our commitment to this principle, empowering countless individuals to live the fullest lives possible.

None of this would be possible without the support of our community. To our donors, volunteers, staff, and partners, I extend my deepest gratitude for your continued generosity, dedication, and advocacy. Your contributions, whether through financial support, attending events, or supporting the artists in the TECH Art Gallery, have made a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve.

I also want to acknowledge our dedicated staff, comprising over 100 individuals, who work tirelessly day in and day out to ensure that the people we serve receive the care, support, and opportunities they deserve. Their commitment to our mission is truly the heartbeat of our organization, and I am continually inspired by their compassion, professionalism, and dedication.

As we look to the future, I am filled with optimism and excitement for the possibilities that lie ahead. Together, we will continue to break down barriers, foster inclusion, and create opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to thrive.

Thank you for your unwavering support and belief in our mission. Together, we are truly making a difference.

With sincere appreciation,


Kevin Hess
