Major Evie Diaz

Term:

Since July 2010

Profile:

Major Charles assumed command as divisional leader of the Salvation Army, Kansas and Western Missouri on July 1, 2010. Previously, he was assigned as the Divisional Commander of the Heartland Division, which includes the state of Iowa and Southwestern Illinois. Both Major Smith and his wife Sharon call Kansas City their hometown from before entering The Salvation Army College for Officer Training 36 years ago. They have served in several appointment within the 11 central states in Corps Community Centers, many Divisional Headquarters, and the Central Territorial Headquarters.

Leadership Statement:

The Salvation Army in Greater Kansas City serves a seven-county area with programs and services designed to address the social issues in the communities that each unit serves. The type of services offered include emergency welfare assistance, counseling, residential treatment programs for substance abuse, a children's shelter, day care and pre school programs, and character building activities for children and adults. The Salvation Army provides these services from 13 locations strategically located in the metropolitan area. The Salvation Army is dedicated to meeting human need wherever it exists. Its basic services provide a safety net for the community. These services include food pantry and emergency rent and utility assistance, daycare centers for children of low income families, programs for at risk youth, a children's shelter for abused and neglected children, homeless shelters and transitional housing, senior programs and visitation, alcohol and drug abuse treatment programs, Christmas toys and food programs for families living in poverty, prison correctional programs and disaster recovery assistance. Because The Salvation Army is not a single purpose agency, it has the flexibility to respond to unmet needs in the community. The Salvation Army's dedication and drive to succeed in its life changing work is motivated by a religious core. As a Christian church, with the officers being ordained ministers, The Salvation Army is able to minister to spiritual as well as physical needs. But as ever, there are no requirements for adherence to the principles of The Salvation Army as a prerequisite for receiving assistance.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

October 2014)
?

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?
Response Not Provided

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

The Salvation Army has served over 347,000 meals, provided 123,000 nights of lodging in shelters and other programs, and provided 62,000 individuals with emergency assistance in the Kansas City Metro 2013. The Salvation Army of Greater Kansas City began a new initiate to offer a hand-up to families caught in the cycle of poverty in - a Pathway of Hope. The Pathway of Hope is a program for families in cyclical poverty that have a desire to take action and change the course of their lives, offering a conduit to sufficiency by interjecting enhanced services through case management and strategic community partnerships. The Pathway of Hope is The Salvation Army's opportunity to provide financial education, reduce the number of barriers these families face on the path to sufficiency, and increase their hope. The target population for the Pathway of Hope is families with children - with the intention of impacting both generations. Research shows that children who grow up in poverty are 32x more likely to be in poverty as an adult. When helping a family with children reach the level of sufficiency, the impact is doubled in that two generations have been touched with one allocation of resources. After a full year, 97 families (303 Children) are enrolled in Pathway of Hope. In 2014, the goals of The Salvation Army are: expanding the Pathway of Hope initiative into all Salvation Army community centers across the division, providing as much aid as possible to families in need of emergency assistance, continuing to reach the hungry in Kansas City through our ""Honk and Holler"" program as well as our holiday food box program, increasing awareness of our low cost summer camp programs so more children in Kansas City can attend, and meeting the needs of the whole person through a combination of material and spiritual help at our local community centers.
