?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

HFH GLA's A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) program provides exterior home repairs free of charge to qualifying low-income homeowners.  Repairs include but are not limited to roof and window repair and replacement, security bar and handrail repair installation, painting, and landscaping. Interested homeowners must demonstrate proof of ownership, residency in the Greater LA region and financial need.  This program is targeted towards low-income households earning less than 80% of area median income.  To date, the “A Brush with Kindness” program has provided over 105 low-income homeowners with critically needed home repairs. Approximately 80 percent of the beneficiaries of this program are low-income senior citizens.

Program Long-Term Success:

By performing critically-needed exterior home repairs, this program will increase the health and safety of existing low-income homeowners, aid in reducing homeowner’s long term utility costs by increasing energy efficiency, and help beautify economically-disadvantaged neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles County.

Program Short-Term Success:

Complete 20 A Brush with Kindness projects in FY11.

Program Success Monitored by:

Program Success Examples:

The ABwK program has recently helped 76 year old Mrs. Robinson of Los Angeles, California, whose leaking roof and deteriorating windows were replaced by HFH GLA staff and volunteers after she suffered a hip injury. Now, her home is safer, warmer and more secure, and her energy bills have been reduced.

Category:
Housing
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

HFH GLA builds and renovates housing in partnership with qualified low-income partner families to build safe, affordable housing in the greater L.A. area.  Partner families are determined through a selection process based upon their need for adequate housing, their ability to pay back a no interest home loan and their willingness to partner with the organization.

Program Long-Term Success:

Provide hundreds of hard-working low-income families throughout greater Los Angeles with the opportunity to purchase a safe, decent and affordable home, while revitalizing economically-distressed L.A. communities by introducing high-quality, affordable homes into neighborhoods adversely affected by the foreclosure crisis. Provide homeownership and financial literacy courses that will contribute to their long-term success as homeowners.

Program Short-Term Success:

In the next three years, provide nearly 200 very-low to low income families with the opportunity to own safe, decent and affordable homes.

Program Success Monitored by:

HFH GLA will track foreclosure data, home sales activity, business sector and jobs growth and demographic trends to measure revitalization efforts. In addition, HFH GLA will conduct surveys and personal interviews of its Partner families to measure the impact of homeownership.

Program Success Examples:

In 21 years, HFH GLA has built or renovated over 350 homes locally, providing safe, decent and affordable homes for over 2,000 people in L.A. County. During this period, HFH GLA has experienced a less than 1 percent foreclosure rate. Additionally, 95% of our homeowners continue to live in the homes they’ve purchased through HFH GLA’s Homeownership program.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

HFH GLA builds homes with those who demonstrate need and the willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Families are not given the homes; they purchase them at no profit through interest free loans. Mortgage payments are placed into a revolving Fund for Humanity to build future homes. Through this approach we give families a "hand up" restoring the hope and dignity that poverty housing can strip away.
