Accra Celebrates its 30th Anniversary

Hear from Accra's employees, clients and caregivers as we celebrate 30 years of serving Minnesotans

In 2022, Accra is celebrating its 30th anniversary! To recognize the occasion, we talked with employees, clients, caregivers and responsible parties about the the impact that Accra has made on the people and communities it has served.

Accra President and CEO John Dahm, CFO LeAnn Frette and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Lead Mary Ngunu (who have collectively worked almost 40 years at Accra!) also shared how they have seen Accra evolve over the years and why Accra’s work is meaningful to them.

Thank you to all the clients that have been with us and trusted us with their services for three decades!

Video Transcript

John Dahm: 30 years is a long time; the changes that we’ve seen in the last five or so much more than the first 25.

LeAnn Frette: When I first joined Accra, there was only 13 employees. And as of today, there’s probably 370 employees.

Mary Ngunu: This is really meaningful work. And it’s knowing that we’re making a difference in our clients and our family’s lives.
