Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Lena Park's vision/ goal vision for its community (catchment area) is one in which youth have supports to achieve academic success that enables them to complete college and/or a career oriented job; youth and families have access to activities and recreation that provide alternatives to violence and that build positive youth development assets; and families have access to community, private, and government resources and services that they can use to strengthen their families.

(Although the emphasis is on youth and families, LPCDC will not turn away single, adult individuals that reside in the catchment area.)

The leverage strategy consists of two major components:

• Direct Services - services to be provided directly by LPCDC. These are considered to be foundational programs/services. That is, other service offerings will be built upon a primary program/service e.g. a Tech Café would support educational services for youth as well as job readiness and placement for adults via self-guided learning programs.
 This strategy is more time intensive and require more resources because of the direct involvement in implementation and management

• Indirect Services - services to be provided by collaborations/partnerships with qualified agencies. Programs/services will be delivered via a Community Resource Center, at 150 American Legion Highway, which will be developed and managed by LPCDC.
 LPCDC will identify the programs/services for addressing discovered needs

 Qualified and vetted partners (both inside and outside of catchment area) will provide designated services on certain days during specific hours

 LPCDC will utilize its core strength and be responsible for marketing/outreach - delivering the participants to the classes, seminars, workshops and/or individual consultations

 LPCDC will work with partners to create mutual expectations regarding: quality standards, performance metrics, and anticipated outcomes

 This strategy needs significantly less time and resources from LPCDC for implementing and managing programs/services to address issues in catchment area

These are overarching strategies regarding how we plan to reach our mission via the usage of our resources and capabilities - especially core capabilities.)

1. Until LPCDC is financially strong with a six-month operations reserve, it will primarily leverage the resources that already exist in the larger Boston Metropolitan Area for the delivery of programs and services to address identified needs and challenges in its catchment area.

2. LPCDC will own and manage a Community Resource Center (CRC) which will house the various services/programs delivered by reputable external organizations.

3. LPCDC will “mate” its core strength of community engagement for outreach, marketing and generating participants for the services/programs offered at the CRC.

4. LPCDC will use its core strength of community engagement for creating venues for residents’ civic engagement and leadership development.

5. LPCDC will utilize residents’ civic engagement and leadership to assist in addressing identified issues and challenges within its catchment area.

Lena Park is in the beginning stages of reopening and our new found progress is yet to be determined. We are however, in the process of developing and identifying tools that will further measure the progress and success of all programs.
