Program Description:

The LCS family program is designed to provide emergency shelter and case management to homeless families. Last year the program served 244 individuals.

Program Long-Term Success:

The goal of the program is for families to leave the emergency shelter for either permanent or transitional housing, while strengthening their resiliency or reducing risks for child abuse.

Program Short-Term Success:

Parents in the family program attend groups and workshops to learn relationship skills, parenting skills, and household financial management. In addition to this knowledge parents demonstrate a number of changes in behavior and attitude that leads to changing their housing status.

Program Success Monitored by:

A number of tools are used during the course of the program to measure incremental changes, but the primary measure of success is in the number of individuals who move into housing after completing the program.

Program Success Examples:

In 2013 the family program served 78 families with 102 adults and 142 children. Over 50% of those families completed the program and entered either transitional or permanent housing.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Lawrence Community Shelter served 836 individuals experiencing homelessness in 2013. In the past year, 245 individuals in the housing program have successfully left the shelter and moved into permanent housing. The employment program in the same time frame has helped 97 program participants find permanent employment. Meanwhile the intervention program has assisted 102 individuals in seeking appropriate treatment and the benefits program has helped 42 individuals file disability claims. In 2014 LCS anticipates serving between 800 and 900 individuals with emergency shelter.
