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 half-way 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 is also a member of the Charlotte County Leadership Charlotte Class of 2012 and President-Elect of the Charlotte Harbor Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).Over her career thus far Angela has raised more than 250 million dollars and spear-headed 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:

As all of us who live in Southwest Florida know, since 2009 there has been a whirlwind of change and financial stress. Many of us have seen our friends and neighbors lose much of what they had worked for. Families who had once been donors and volunteers of the Coalition became clients. Just like all of us in our personal lives, the Coalition has had to tighten our belt and reassess our spending priorities. It is undeniable that the Homeless Coalition looks much different today than it did in previous years. We are strong and passionately committed to serving anyone who comes to us in need. We have reaffirmed our dedication to treating every client with respect and dignity while always striving for client independence. The kind of culture change the Homeless Coalition has been through in the last few years is a testament to the strength of character and compassion of our staff, Board of Directors, funders, United Way, County Government, and local businesses and volunteers. It was representatives from all these diverse groups and organizations in Charlotte County who came together and refused to give up in the face of obstacles and tough decisions. In June of 2012, the Coalition will celebrate our 23rdAnniversary. We are moving forward with a clear understanding of the importance of our services to the most vulnerable members of our community. As we begin 2012, the Coalition has maintained our focus on finding permanent solutions to the challenges of preventing and ending hunger and homelessness in Charlotte County. I invite you to join us and express my sincere admiration for those who already have.

The program philosophy is to quickly move newly homeless clients from Emergency Shelter back into Permanent Housing through intensive case management services. In addition to the basics of a bed, hot water shower, laundry and food, the number one service provided is stability. The Safe House is safe and compassionate place for people dealing with homelessness. It provides an outreach point for social service and volunteer agencies that help the homeless. It has reduced demands on law enforcement agencies, hospitals, and social service agencies by providing a safe, supervised place for homeless persons to go. In addition to serving the single adult population, it is the goal of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition to keep families intact. This includes couples, couples with children, or single parents with minor children.

Program Long-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.

Program Success Examples:

The Coalition's Dining Room serves hot meals for breakfast and dinner seven days a week, 365 days a year. In 2010-2011 we served MORE THAN 55,000 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 2,500 households utilized the 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

The greatest achievement that the Coalition has attained in the past few years is the revitalization of the Staff and Board of Directors and the commitment to each other, our clients and the community as a whole to continue operating. The Coalition will celebrate our 23rd Anniversary this summer and has adopted a business model with outcomes based measurements for program success. In order to create this new way of operating, the Board of Directors underwent an entire summer of strategic planning addressing both all areas of Coalition programming but also governance, fundraising and volunteer management. This intensive examination resulted in some programs closing, others being expanded, streamlining of staff duties, implementation of specific policies for every employees position and groundwork for new positions and committees to be lead by Board Members.Other achievements of the Coalition in the past few years included: The formation of the Charlotte Foundation for the Prevention of Homelessness & Hunger for the purpose of supporting and advancing the activities of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. The Foundation Trustees and volunteers put on their 4th Annual Mistletoe Ball in December 2011 with a record 550 guests and sponsors. Also in December of 2008 the Homeless Coalition opened the Safe House Emergency Homeless Shelter. The Safe House is the only operating Homeless Shelter between Sarasota and Fort Myers.
