COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- I Am Boundless, Inc. and Koinonia have signed an agreement with intentions to combine organizations by Oct. 1. The two nonprofits will create Ohio's largest provider to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and one of the state's five largest health-and-human service organizations.
Boundless has grown from a $25-million organization to $100 million in the past five years under the leadership of Dr. Patrick Maynard, Boundless president and CEO. With an additional $35-million in revenue from Koinonia, the combined organization is expected to surpass $135 million in 2024, making it the largest provider of its kind in Ohio.
"We are so glad that we can come together with Koinonia because our organizations are very like-minded in serving the whole person across their lifetime," Maynard said. "Joining forces is a win-win that allows us to operate more effectively and pool our resources. We think this opportunity will benefit both the staff and those we serve."
Both organizations will operate under the Boundless brand. Programs, schedules and staffing will remain unchanged for individuals served and their families.
"Koinonia has a rich history of leading innovation, care and community integration among this population," said Diane Beastrom, Koinonia president and CEO. "This step builds on that history in an important move toward best-in-class, whole-person care. I am confident this new organization will serve as a national model for years to come."
