What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Job preparation

Education, job preparation, life skills training and vocational placement will play a vital role in helping Atlanta's young people attain self-sufficiency. Covenant House Georgia has developed programs to address these needs for homeless youth. All youth who wish to participate in Community Service Center activities meet with staff to discuss their goals, life situation, interests and skills. This broad-based assessment forms the basis for a mutually agreed upon plan to reach their personal and vocational goals. Our staff also offers on the spot counseling and referrals to medical services and other sources of support. Our trained staff provides ongoing individual counseling, crisis intervention and case management services. We also lead groups each week in discussions that cover AIDS/HIV prevention, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy/parenting and other issues. We offer counseling that provides youth with everyday life skills.

Emergency shelter for up to 90 days is provided to young people ages 16-24. Medical and mental health care is provided for the focus on primary care, OB/GYN care, prenatal care, STD, HIV, asthma and diabetes screening, health education and substance abuse treatment. Youth who is suffering with severe and persistent mental illness receive (or referred to) psychiatric counseling, medical management, and help finding supported permanent housing. They participate in CSC-hosted activities, all designed lead to independent, sustainable futures. At the end of 90 days youth are eligible to apply for our 140-bed onsite independent living program. Here youth can stay up to two years while having the support of onsite case managers to assist with the transition to fully independent living.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
