Rose Chapman

Term:

Since Aug 1993

Profile:

Rose Chapman, LCSW, has been President/CEO at JFCS since 1993. Since that time the agency has grown from a small two-room agency with a budget of $200,000 providing primary services to seniors and Russian refugees into a major social service organization with more than 100 employees, an annual budget of $5.5 million and 26 programs offered at 16 locations serving all residents of southwest Florida's Suncoast. A young Jewish émigré from Cuba, Rose experienced many of the life challenges that our clients face. Her personal experience led her to a career in social work. She received her Masters in Social Work from Fordham University. Her dedication to this vocation has been founded on her compassionate, caring and professional commitment to helping others. Rose lives the mission of JFCS…providing comprehensive counseling and social services to people confronting life's challenges. Her vision is to alleviate pain where it exists. Rose has expanded the range of services available through JFCS to advocate for the most vulnerable individuals in our community. JFCS programs prevent homelessness for at-risk families experiencing financial difficulties; offer at-risk youth a safe alternative to out-of-school suspension; provide socialization programs for isolated homebound seniors; and reunite recovering substance abusers with their families through targeted wrap-around services. For more than 35 years, Rose has been a committed Jewish communal professional, providing direct service, leadership and executive management to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community…children, families and seniors receive compassionate, caring services through their local Jewish Family Service organization. Prior to coming to Sarasota in 1993, Rose worked at JFS in Miami, FL for 17 years.

Leadership Statement:

JFCS provides safety net services to improve the quality of life for all residents, especially those confronting life's challenges. These services are designed to be cost effective, for example, saving participants - and the community - the cost of paying for nursing home placements by enabling older adults to age in their own homes with the supportive services they need to do so healthfully and saving the juvenile justice system money by helping children improve their behaviors and their success in school. By serving people at all stages of life and focusing on the strengths of participants and their families and neighborhoods, JFCS is able to provide a one-stop solution to many of the issues challenging area residents and the greater community.

Population Served:
Adults
Other Named Groups
Other Named Groups

Program Description:

Mission: To support veterans and their families who reside in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte or DeSoto counties who are confronting life's challenges.JFCS's Operation Military Assistance Program is entering its third year of operations and is funded primarily by a grant from the federal Department of Veterans Affairs through its Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. Operation Military Assistance Program (OMAP) offers case management and financial assistance to very low income veterans and their families who are literally homeless or who are about to become homeless to enable them to obtain or maintain stable, permanent housing.ServicesAssistance obtaining and/or maintaining permanent housing.Integrated case management.Assistance obtaining VA benefits and other public mainstream benefits such as Social Security, TANF, and food stamps, etc.EligibilityIndividuals to be assisted:A minimum of one day active duty service is required.Any discharge except dishonorable.Must be very low-income, i.e. income must be below 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI varies by county)Who can be served?Individual veterans.Families in which head of household or their spouse is a veteran.

Program Long-Term Success:

Two measures are used to track the long-term success of the OMAP Program: *Of the veteran households who are literally homeless at the time of entry into the OMAP Program, 70% will obtain permanent housing as a result of the services provided and will maintain permanent housing at the time of exit from the program *Of the veterans households who are in permanent housing at the time of entry into the OMAP Program, but who are at risk of losing that housing within 14 days, 90% will avoid becoming homeless as a result of the services provided and will maintain permanent housing at the time of exit from the program

Program Short-Term Success:

Short-term outcomes for the OMAP Program include: *275 veterans households will be served during FY 2014 *Of the households served, 75% will be extremely low-income (i.e., below 30% of Area Median Income); *Of the households served, 35% will include children *Of the households served, 12% will include OEF/OIF/OND veterans (i.e., veterans who served in Afghanistan and/or Iraq)

Program Success Monitored by:

Extensive case files are maintained on all program participants which document the services provided and the results achieved in terms of obtaining/maintaining permanent housing. This information is entered by client case managers into the computerized client case management information system (known as the Homeless Management Information System, or HMIS) which is maintained for each county in the service area. At the end of each month, the client data in the HMIS is uploaded to the VA's Data Repository in Virginia and monthly reports are generated for each SSVF-funded project. Analysis of these reports enable JFCS to track the services being provided to each client and the results being achieved by the program. In addition, case managers regularly review each other's work in a formal peer review process, and ""customer satisfaction"" surveys are distributed to program participants on a regular basis. Information from these surveys is used to identify changes needed and to improve program operations.

Program Success Examples:

Adrienne is a 46-year-old Army veteran who is the single-parent mother of a 12-year-old child. A brief gap in employment when she changed nursing jobs caused her to fall behind on her rent and power bills and to come to JFCS's Operation Military Assistance Program (OMAP) for assistance. OMAP was able to help her with those types of assistance utilizing funds from the agency's SSVF grant from the Department of Veteran Affairs. However, Adrienne had also fallen behind on her car payments, which resulted in her car being repossessed. The lack of a vehicle prevented her from getting to work—crucial for her to be able to provide housing for herself and her daughter. The VA's SSVF funds cannot be used this type of assistance, so donor funds were used to retrieve Adrienne's car from repossession and catch her up on her car payments, enabling her to maintain her employment and her housing. Tracey is a single, 45-year-old veteran of the Marine Corps who was literally homeless and living in his car with his girlfriend when he came to OMAP for assistance. He was unemployed and had been turned down for disability assistance despite having extremely high blood pressure and a damaged knee. OMAP utilized SSVF funds to assist the couple with deposits associated with getting set-up in an apartment, and with rent and utilities as they tried to get back on their feet. Their car needed repairs, and that was an allowable expenditure under SSVF. However, Tracey also had unpaid traffic fines to resolve in order to regain his driver's license, a critical factor in being able to obtain employment and maintain the couple's housing. These expenses could not be covered by SSVF funds. Fortunately, donor funds were available to cover this expense and keep the couple moving forward.

"At first, I was in denial and then became overwhelmed and depressed. I was now the caregiver and tried to do it alone. That was a huge mistake! Fortunately, my friends and family intervened and told me to get professional help including services provided by JFCS" stated Marv. Marv attended the JFCS-sponsored Caregiver Support Group. "Hearing from other caregivers allowed me to get a sense of what lay ahead for us. The group was so supportive and took the guilt away" added Marv.

I can't emphasize enough that caregivers need to get help. JFCS was instrumental in getting me to accept the changes and make plans for the future without feeling ashamed" offered Marv.
