Annual Report 2013

December 18, 2013


Dear Friends of Maitri,

I am pleased to share our fiscal year 2013 Annual Report reflecting three important trends:

  • Financial support for Maitri from the federal government continues to decline, with revenue from this source dropping by more than $100,000 versus the prior year. Fortunately, increased donations from the community (generous individuals and private/corporate/community foundations) and significant additional reductions made in our administrative overhead have resulted in an improved, positive
    net return.

  • While Maitri continues to provide critical end-of-life support for San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents with advanced AIDS, our shift to medical stabilization care continues. In fiscal 2013, 19% of our residents experienced the end of their life at Maitri, while a majority – 51% – achieved their medical stabilization goals to the point that they were able to return to the community for a second chance at life. We celebrate this shift, while always giving priority in admissions for those in need of hospice care.

  • The age of our resident population continues to climb. In fiscal 2013, 55% of our residents were 51 years of age or older. In fact, 23% of our residents were aged 61 or older. Clearly, the increasing effectiveness of HIV medications – allowing persons with AIDS to live independently much longer than previously – is to credit for this significant shift.

One thing that hasn’t changed at Maitri is the love, compassion and dignity that we offer each of our
residents – whether here for end-of-life care or for medical stabilization. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of our dedicated donors, volunteers, and staff. Thank you so much for making all of this possible.

Warm regards,

Michael Smithwick
Executive Director
