2019: Empowering. Connecting. Healing. - Hearing and Speech Agency

2019: Empowering. Connecting. Healing.

I am pleased to share the 2019 Annual Report that includes statistics and financials from FY 2019 (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019). This past year has been one of growth and learning. There are a few highlights from last year of which I am especially proud and that represent important changes in the way we will tell our story for years to come.

EMPOWERING

After hosting several focus groups and seeking community feedback, a new strategic plan launched last fall. In it, we unveiled new mission, vision, and value statements that more accurately reflect the communities we serve.  

MISSION: connecting people to their worlds
VISION: a society where everyone can understand and be understood
CORE VALUES: integrity, compassion, equity
GUIDING VALUES: a healthy, impactful, and relevant nonprofit organization

CONNECTING

You’ve known us as HASA (as an acronym) for years. Last year, we started officially doing business as (d/b/a) HASA. While we’re immensely proud of our history and the work we’ve done as The Hearing and Speech Agency of Metropolitan Baltimore, your feedback during the strategic planning process made it clear that community needs go far beyond just “hearing” and “speech.”  HASA more accurately reflects the vast community that believes in the need to understand and be understood in Baltimore – and beyond.

HEALING

You are probably already familiar with the life-changing interpreting, therapeutic, and special education programs that happen on our Baltimore campus every day. Last year, we launched new initiatives throughout the region, focused on core program areas of education, hearing health, inclusion, language access, and speech and language. Our promise to the community is that HASA will continue to provide empowering, connecting, and healing programs to fulfill our mission to connect people to their worlds.
