Mrs Angela Hogan

Term:

Since May 2009

Profile:

The vast majority of Angela's career has been spent working in not for profit and government organizations. She set out on this path when, at age 16, she started volunteering at a local halfway house for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts in her hometown. Over the past 25 years Angela has held professional positions as an Executive Director for a summer camp serving 200 low-income girls, a Case Manager for an in-patient Psychiatric Hospital, a Technical Writer for a nuclear power plant, a teacher in a juvenile detention facility, and Grants Writer/Outcomes Coordinator for a five county foster care - human services agency. In 2006 Angela was accepted into the inaugural class of the North Port Leadership Institute (now called Gulf Coast Leadership). It was during this leadership training that she was introduced to Charlotte County by a Past-President of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Kevin Russell. After two years of talking with Kevin about the history and needs of the Coalition, Angela agreed to leave her job at a large Sarasota agency and dedicate herself to providing leadership at the Homeless Coalition. In 2007 Angela was one of the founding members of Vision North Port which lead into Imagine North Port and the creation of the Community Master Planning Initiative. Angela was a member of the Charlotte County Leadership Charlotte Class of 2012, Past President and current Board Member of the Charlotte Harbor Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Co-chair for the Florida Coalition of the Homeless State Representative to the Florida State Council on Homelessness and a Board Member of the Florida Coalition for Homelessness. She is also a Board Member of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, The Gulf Coast Partnership and the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition Foundation. Over her career thus far Angela has raised money and spearheaded multiple annual, endowment and capital campaigns for causes such as: literacy, runaway youth, mental illness, substance abuse, foster care, poverty, human & civil rights, homelessness, and too many more to list. Angela earned a B.A in Social-Psychology and an M.A. in Cultural Anthropology from Norwich Military Academy.

Leadership Statement:

This is a special time for us at the Homeless Coalition as we celebrate 25 years of service. This year is about gratitude and thanking the community for all you have made possible. The faces of those we serve and the locations where services have been given have changed, but the mission of the Homeless Coalition has remained constant…to alleviate and prevent hunger and homelessness. Celebrating our 25th anniversary is certainly special, but for many of our neighbors, friends, co-workers, and families, in Charlotte County, just surviving is more difficult than ever before. Foreclosures continue, underemployment is high, and the costs of child care and transportation are staggering, many of our community's children are forced into hunger and homelessness. Your generous donations have kept many from going hungry or living on the streets, we need you more than ever to prevent a hungry child or single mother from spending one more night in crisis. How do we do this? First, we work on the basics. Through our hot meals program, homeless outreach, emergency shelter, homeless prevention, and food pantry, we address people's immediate needs for food, clothing, shelter, and access to medical care. Once a person's emergency needs have been addressed, we work on next steps. We place clients in transitional housing, permanent housing, and permanent supportive housing. We offer wrap around services such as budgeting, parenting, cooking, and GED preparation classes. We work with clients to ensure they have adequate medical care, child care, access to healthy food and transportation and offer long-term case management services so people are not left without caring support before they reach full self-sufficiency. As a frontline provider you expect us to find real solutions to homelessness and work on the root cause not just the symptoms, and we do. Over the past three years, the Coalition has been completely dedicated to finding permanent solutions to some of our community's biggest challenges. We have led the effort to create a Ten Year Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, actively participated in working with all of our County's Food Pantries to share information and standardize procedures, and we are committed to moving towards an intensive case management model focused on client accountability and self-sufficiency. In 1989, Rev. Rod McClarnon, Ed Thompson, and Carole Jonas signed the incorporation papers that marked the beginning of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. I doubt that our three brave founders 25 years ago dreamt that we would be able to serve the hundreds of people a day that we do today. We are continually impressed by how deeply you care. It doesn't matter if you are a 2nd or 3rd generation local or if you are one of our fantastic retirees, it's evident how much you love your community, and how invested you are to helping those in need.

?

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?

Program: Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
October 2014)

Budget:
$144,941
Category:
Housing, General/Other
Population Served:
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General
Adults
Other Named Groups

Program Description:

Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program consists of multiple services that assist families and individuals with financial resources. Initially the Rapid Re-Housing Program will stabilize families in crisis by providing emergency shelter and assistance. While housed at the shelter, potential Rapid Re-Housing Program clients will be working on a qualifying plan and identifying the short term solutions and outcomes in order to qualify for the program. Individuals or families will be selected for the 12 month Rapid Re-Housing Program if they have a case plan that requires additional time for school, training or other activates that will take substantially longer than the 60 day planned discharge date from the Emergency Shelter. This may include completing CNA classes, Dental Assistant programs, Hair Dressing Certification, LPN Certification, etc. Certifications will result in increased income at completion and the likelihood of financial stability.

Program Long-Term Success:

With the Rapid Re-Housing Program we are offering permanent and realistic solutions to a long term problem and our goal is to lift people out of poverty. Clients that are accepted into the Rapid Re-Housing Program will receive childcare, tuition assistance, rental subsidy, and intensive ongoing case management support throughout their entire stay in the program. The Rapid Re-Housing Program and Case Management Support offers not only immediate relief but will work with the program participants on a more personalized level, with classes and group trainings to re-direct learned behaviors and thought methodology which will be necessary for their long term successes. Once participants have completed the Rapid Re-Housing Program they will be equipped with knowledge and tools that help them move out of poverty.

Program Short-Term Success:

The Homeless Coalition's Homeless Prevention Caseworkers assist families with past due rent and utilities, which is paid directly to landlords and utility companies, in order to keep clients stably housed with their families intact.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Homeless Coalition monitors outcome data on a monthly basis. The Homeless Coalition is constantly examining all programs and their outcomes and adjust accordingly in order to best serve our clients.

Program Success Examples:

Over the past year, the Homeless Prevention Case managers assisted over 370 families with past due rent and utilities, allowing these families to remain stably housed with their families intact.

October 2014)

Budget:
$256,935
Category:
Housing, General/Other
Population Served:
Homeless
Other Named Groups
Adults

Program Description:

Safe House Emergency Homeless Shelter provides safe, supervised emergency shelter for up to 60-days. On any given day 18-25 children and their families call the Safe House home. The program philosophy is to quickly move newly homeless clients from Emergency Shelter back into Permanent Housing through intensive case management services and the number one service provided is stability. The Shelter offers staff and volunteer assistance with applications for mainstream services such as Medicaid, Medicare, Disability, Veteran's Benefits, TANF, Food Stamps, and Child Care Assistance. Volunteers also run groups and classes in Parenting, Budgeting, Interview Skills, Resume Writing, Job Hunting, Basic Computer Skills, and Smoking Cessation. Tutors come to the Shelter five nights a week for two hours and assist the children with their homework in a special children's study area. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous Groups meet on-site six days per week for residents and non-residents who are in need of support in recovery. It has reduced demands on law enforcement agencies, hospitals, and social service agencies by providing a safe, supervised place for homeless persons to go.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Safe House Emergency Shelter's case managers work with the residents as they look for employment if they are not working, attain mainstream benefits if necessary, enroll in classes and refer the residents to other local agencies in order to obtain the necessary means to move back into a permanent and stable housing situation.

Program Short-Term Success:

The Safe House Emergency Shelter provides immediate housing and safety for individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness for the first time or for individuals and families that have found themselves, due to economic or other reasons, in need again. One of the most important goals of the shelter is to keep families intact.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Homeless Coalition monitors outcome data monthly. The Homeless Coalition is constantly examining all programs and their outcomes and adjust accordingly in order to best serve our clients.

Program Success Examples:

Over the past year the Safe House Emergency Shelter has provided safe refuge to over 464 people including 169 children under the age of 18 and more than 96% of the people who left the Shelter over the past year have gone on to permanent housing and have not returned for additional services.

Program Description:

Hunger Prevention Programs consist of a Food Pantry and Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Choice Pantry which is open on Mondays between 1 and 4:00 pm to distribute a three-day supply of food to needy families and a Hot Meals Program open 365 days per year serving a nutritious breakfast, dinner and snacks to more than 180 people every day. The Hunger Prevention Program serves the nutritional needs of families and individuals. The Hunger Prevention Program speaks to the nutritional needs of those who reside in places not meant for human habitation, i.e., the woods, in cars or on the streets and families and individuals who have to make a decision between money for food or bills and other expenses. In addition to providing food immediately through hot meals and food for later through the pantry, the Homeless Coalition utilizes these services as an opportunity to introduce isolated individuals to supportive people and other community resources.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program Success Examples:

The Coalition's Dining Room serves hot meals for breakfast and dinner seven days a week, 365 days a year. In 2012-2013 we served MORE THAN 68,700 meals! That is a truly amazing accomplishment and would have been impossible without the hundreds of dedicated volunteers and restaurants that give so generously.More than 2,950 households utilized the Homeless Coalition's Food Pantry in the last year. The most notable change is that more than a quarter of those households were senior citizens.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Since the Safe House Emergency Shelter opened on December 19th, 2008, we have been able to provide shelter to more than 4,380 people, 877 have been children, under the age of 18. 78% of the individuals and families that have left the shelter have moved into permanent housing and returned to self-sufficiency. In a 7-state study conducted in 2012, the National Alliance to End Homelessness indicates that the average success rates for permanent housing placements from emergency shelters and transitional housing programs are 15% and 40% respectively. The Homeless Coalition was responsible for bringing together all community stakeholders through a visioning process to create a 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness in Charlotte County. The Homeless Coalition is pioneering changes to what the traditional use volunteers looks like by bringing highly skilled volunteers to provide not only SOAR Trained Case Management but expanding into specialized trainings both within our facility and throughout the community's agency's with extremely relevant trainings such as crisis de-escalation and bridges out of poverty.
