Charting impact

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

We are hoping the financial assistance will allow us the opportunity to build a stronger foundation for our organization. Our ultimate goal will be to service more families and assist in sending more young adults to college. The social change of not one child but all children in the household will be college bound; We are looking at the outcome of parents getting more involved in the center so we can help them to increase their power of standing strong and moving in the right direction. We want to provide more then recreation, we want to help families learn the importance of volunteering, and giving of one's self to help a neighbor, a senior citizen, or another youth or teen make it in this neighborhood, to become leaders. These are goals that we will work on for the next 3 - 5 years. The goal is to lift every family up and send them on a path of success and self-respect. We have success stories complied from years past, and we are sure more success stories are in our future. The community we service are like family, you want to nurture them, keep them safe, but above all let them stand on their own two feet and walk into a hopeful future.

Our strategies is to have enough seed money to hold fundraisers to increase revenue to work for the people of our neighborhoods. It's all about how money can open doors, change a life, bring about a change in a families everyday. We strive to see others do well, in health, opportunities, family growth, and education. It is our goal to insure they are not doing it alone, that the support from this community center is at the four front of their path to a better life. Our objective is to bring new programming not offered here to help with the language barriers, the cultural differences, and the age disparities.

Our recent progress defined by our objectives is moving us to our ultimate goals of helping families grow together, though learning, sharing, and ultimately gathering important information that will propel them in the direction of owning their own home, getting a great paying job, and raising their family with no restrictions or sacrifices. Our outcomes of helping to make a family whole is our long-term goal. We have achieved one outcome; increasing membership, but we must increase our programming need. To offer programs which directly helps the family achieve their future goals and objectives. Although there are obstacles that must be met; retaining enough funds to complete all tasked at hand, to be able to help every family in need; and to successfully be apart of sending more young adults to college for a better life. There are risk such as falling short of space needed to accomplish all the goals we have mentioned; we are housed in a one level building two multi-using rooms; one computer room; and the gymnasium, we will have to schedule programming just right as one program closes another begins, but this also show us the progress of our goals and objectives being met.
