What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We will address poverty, social-unrest, suffering, silent suffrage, and community despondency among the abject poor and under-served and address key issues commonly shared among populations. Unfortunately, there are many associated issues and related factors which lead to poverty; however, these associated factors are often un-discovered and undefined. We have determined key underlying factors, those which present opportunities to provide unique social resolutions to viable actors; a new approach to address and analyze underlying issues and conditions which contribute to social unrest and poverty. Upon securing vital funding to acquire adequate communication technology for our programs, we will move forward to launch our unique poverty solution programs and offer breakthrough primary research and enhance public awareness and knowledge. We are determined a key leading nonprofit success in offering non-traditional approaches, and raising higher quality of life for the disadvantaged.

National Community of the Disadvantaged Enrichment, NCODE Inc's program is designed in itself as magnet capable of creating resources and attracting support from all sectors of society, government, viable actors, scholars, and educators to assist our mission to accomplish our goal of serving the needy, under-served, under-represented, cultural-socially deprived, economically disenfranchised, and deserving disadvantaged populations in communities, families, and individuals.

The strength and resilience of its board of directors to build a corporation to combat poverty and assist the disadvantaged poor, research poverty issues, keep the corporation actively in good standing for years, network and build relationships among communities, businesses, and volunteer participants of every group, sector, and class, is overwhelming capable. Our program is also capable of simultaneously tapping into the neglected, hidden, and unreached disadvantaged populations of clustered poor persons.

Currently NCODE is equipped with the necessary assets and framework, technical equipment and supplies to operate at a minimum and field level, with increased capabilities through increasing our network of empowered partners, and funders will enhance our ability to accomplish our mission and successfully expand our program service capacity to its highest capability.

NCODE INC., has survived simply because it is unique and non-traditional in its approach to poverty issues, and has the capability of pulling together all sectors of society to accomplish the greater good in society. Its board creativity in development spawns from those who have experience poverty. NCODE'S innovative programs speak to the hearts and minds of the average person to get involved in their own community, society and resolving their own quality of life and this is our strongest asset.

National Community of the Disadvantaged Enrichment, NCODE INC, through years of research has upgraded its mission and strengthened its strategic plans to incorporate significant changes and shifts in populations, improved access to opportunities, and specific needs of deserving disadvantaged persons. NCODE, through introducing its innovative alternative approach to combating poverty among disadvantaged persons of all sectors, groups, and classifications of persons, we realized that poverty is our main focus. The board of directors deemed poverty as a national issue.

We have accomplished much in the initial 5 years assisting approximately 10,000 individual and families with increasing their quality of life, and progressing the communities of Rowan and Cabarrus county North Carolina, however, our overall mission included North Carolina and any disadvantaged neglected community (or person) which desires to be strengthened, enriched with opportunity, and improve its quality of life, dignity of the needy, and improve opportunities for its people. NCODE INC., is seeking to bring innovation and change to many deserving through the launching of a centrally located administrative Regional office in Omaha, Nebraska.

Over the years, our board of directors progressed rapidly and accomplished significant research, administrative and operational set up, and increased contact with many disadvantaged persons resulting in the urgent need to implement the plans for the innovative non-traditional approach program which incorporates a significant national impact. The corporation has implemented the first phase set up and acquired 70 percent of the necessary equipment for the program office through in-kind support of our Board of directors, board advisers, community partners, and interested businesses; however, the lack of significant funding necessary for program operation costs still exist.

We standby ready to encourage, empower, and enlighten the lives of many deserving disadvantaged persons when a faithful partner and or supporter find our mission worthy and desires to collaborate with our national effort to combat poverty among the deserving and disadvantaged poor. This program will be able to progress forward in improving the quality of life of the disadvantaged poor, "Spring forth a new thing" with choices and alternatives to poverty status, improve access to experiences, skills, and opportunities to reach goals. Will you or your organization assist us to progress toward the next level? These are America's deserving disadvantaged citizens. Help us put, " It's My Time: Restore Dreams" program, into full drive ! We invite you to partner with our mission and share in our urgency and concern to make a change and make a difference. Please contact us.

How we listen

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Recently, during our Nation's health crisis our board experienced a sharp increase in service demand for our programs. Unfortunately, the board is struggling to increase service-level capacity due to the lack of funding; however, turning no one away, we increased NCODE's program advocacy component of our strategic operational plan. As part of our plan to combat poverty is the non-duplication of services or assistance that is already in operation by other agencies, institutions, and businesses. With no funding involved, we were able to assist these individuals with our advocacy tools and at a higher service-level by collaborating and coordinating with well-funded agencies. As a result, we were able to resolve poverty issues and the response follow-up contact met with satisfaction.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    We've utilized feedback to help us coordinate and better our programs to fit needs due to societal changes. We know that two heads are better than one. Knowing their hopes, struggles, trends, current, and new barriers, helps us stay on track in our program compliance, program budget projections, targets and compositions. Since our programs are about people, we want to assist them to have a higher quality of life. Input and feedback is necessary and on a continual basis. Despite meeting compliance, an open-door policy through feedback and response has helped us achieve our mission with stronger results; provided empirical data and conclusive findings for our poverty research and our publications. We feel our mission is all about the people and what we can achieve for them with them.

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don’t have the right technology to collect and aggregate feedback efficiently, It is difficult to find the ongoing funding to support feedback collection, funding for travel to remote areas.,
