Charting impact

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

Our Strategic Plan expresses that the heart of our mission has always been to empower people in need to improve their own quality of life. With our CORE values of Compassion, Open-Mindedness, Respect, and Empowerment, we seek to create a welcoming atmosphere of hope when people approach us for help.

As we look to the future, we see ourselves sustaining our Emergency Services and growing in our Transformational Services into a fully-functioning Community Resource Center.

1. Grow from current levels of service and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Community Resource Center and Village Library.

2. Sustain current levels of Emergency Service and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Village Pantry and Mobile Food Pantry.

3. Support service initiatives with improved facilities management.

4. Support service initiatives with enhanced staff development, administrative process, and Board development program.

5. Support service initiatives by growing sales and improving efficiencies at the Coat of Many Colors in order to increase net contributions to Mission Central.

One of Mission Central's greatest assets is our Coat of Many Colors Resale Shop, which provides more than 60% of our annual revenue. With this regular stream of income, we are able to budget confidently for our programs and growth.

We are also blessed with the support of several churches in our community. These churches help provide both funds and volunteers to keep our programs running well.

In recent years, increased revenues from individuals and granting agencies have allowed for expanded growth.

Since we launched our 5-year Strategic Plan in 2015, we have established our Community Resource Center. Now, instead of just receiving food when people visit our Village Pantry, they are interviewed by a volunteer who asks about other needs in their family. The guest is then provided with Resource Guides related to their expressed needs. We have also partnered with the Center for Non-Profit Management to act as a pilot project for their new CNM-Pact(tm) software which allows us to track our guests, what needs they are expressing, and if our Resource Guides are of assistance.

With a year's worth of data from CNM-Pact(tm), we have now established a Family Services Review Committee to make recommendations on which programs we need to launch in the future. Using data on the needs of guests, and evaluating the availability of services that meet these needs in the future, we will soon know what other programs or services would be most useful to help empower our neighbors in need.
