Charting impact

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

To assist immediate basic needs of families living in poverty, elderly or disabled

To work with families to plan for ways to get to sustainability: budget counseling, mentoring, Getting Ahead program attendance, get their licenses or recertifications or further education to improve their professional work life.

Meet daily immediate needs for water, heat, electric, rent, shelter through daily home visits

Sustainability Development:
Provide Budgeting and financial counseling in their own home and assist with developing financial plan

Assist financially and mentor for support those in need to improve education level - GED, licensure, certificates, university or technical college degrees

Encourage participation in Getting Ahead, a 16 session program to help them move out of poverty

Meeting immediate needs -- we have the capabiities and only limited by donations per month

Sustainability plans - we have the personnel to provide the Budgeting and Financial Assistance
We are limited by donations and money in restricted Education Fund to financially assist them with continued education.
We have mentors who can support the family through crisis and enjoin them in their plan for sustainability.

We started the Getting Ahead program 5 years ago and have graduated 30+ individuals; 100% created plans needed to obtain steps towards Sustainability.

Our Home Visitors are now, on the first home visit, asking systemic change questions -- how will you pay for this expense next month? what do you need to do to earn more money and improve your work employment skills?, etc.
