Mr. Dan Parsons

Profile:

Dan Parsons attended High Point University and received a B.A. Degree in History and Political Science in 1969. Before coming to the Mission, he worked in supervisory positions in two grocery store chains. He is a member of the Forsyth County Council on Services for the Homeless and has served as Chairman of the Shelter Provider's Committee for eight years. He is also on the HUD Rating Panel as an at-large member of the city's Continuum of Care Committee. He played an active role in collaboration with the city's consultants in setting up the Mayor's Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness. "I became the Executive Director of the Mission in September of 2001 upon Neal Wilcox's retirement. I sincerely believe that God called me into this ministry to reach the homeless and hopeless men for Christ and to be a witness to people in the community who have special needs. Every time I see the cross on our Mission building, it reminds me that lives are changed because 'Jesus Saves.'"

?

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:

The Rescue Mission is a 95 bed facility that is filled each night with an average waiting list of 20. Every man is encouraged to stay for 90 days. Each one is enrolled in "Overcomers" - a structured program to help men face and deal with their addiction problems and other root causes of homelessness. This biblically-based 12-step program is an important facet in the recovery process. Upon completion, residents are encouraged to enter our one-year Transformers Program, to continue their complete recovery process. The residents are assigned various tasks around the Mission with a goal of helping them learn responsibility and accountability and to instill in them a strong work ethic. The Mission operates two thrift stores which provide work experience for the residents and accounts for 30% of the operating budget of the Mission. A major recycling program helps the men by providing job skills needed as they return to the work force. With "Senior Foster Care" older men who have nowhere to go or no one to care for them are given a secure, affordable, and caring place to live. Additionally, each week, the Mission distributes donated clothing and food free of charge to needy families in the community. Alpha Acres, a 110-acre farm, offers a one year Christian recovery program. Through Bible classes, work therapy, spiritual counseling, and a computer learning center, men are helped to build their lives on a firm foundation.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Rescue Mission opened the New Life Center in 2008, a $4.7 million project, to expand our capacity to meet the needs of more men.
