PAS Celebrates 25th Anniversary in August

Later this summer, PAS will celebrate our 25th anniversary! PAS began as a financial management service on August 1, 1999. 25 years later, PAS is still serving its original purpose. PAS’ mission is to empower our aging and disabled neighbors to live their best lives. This mission is best exemplified by our founder, Patti Sielaff. To help tell PAS’ story below, Patti shares her experience of founding PAS and helping the company grow throughout the years.

In the late 1980s, Patti was the CFO at a residential provider. Their mission was to support individuals with disabilities with choice and independence. Similar to the principles of self-direction PAS follows. Patti helped create a Choice book at the provider. This book was filled with local dining options for members to choose from. It helped empower members to make choices in their own lives.

A contract agency working with Patti’s company loved the Choice book idea. After receiving a Self-Determination grant, this agency asked Patti to establish a fiscal intermediary. A year later, Patti created that fiscal intermediary and named it PAS – Personal Accounting Services.

FUN FACT – PAS’ name was also derived from Patti’s initials: Patti A. Sielaff

Patti has been proud to support people’s independence and personal decision-making. She loves to see the joy in participants when they make their own employment and living decisions. Through PAS, Patti feels blessed to be involved in so many lives around Michigan.

Through PAS, Patti believes every person has the right to make their own choices in life. With PAS’ financial management services in Michigan, participants build a foundation of independence in their life. PAS’ services help self-advocates and families manage and stay within their budgets so they can make their own support decisions.
