Mission

The Emma, Alyson & Kate Hance Family Foundation, Inc., established in the Village of Floral Park, New York, honors the memories of Emma, Alyson and Katie Hance, who died in a car accident on July 26, 2009 at ages eight, seven and five. Subsequently, Jackie and Warren Hance, the girls' parents, have devoted their lives to turning this tragedy into something positive and hopeful, committing to help other children. The Hance Family Foundation was created in 2009, and our mission was lovingly crafted: “To honor the lives of three beautiful sisters by ensuring healthy, happy and safe children through innovative self-esteem educational programming and the support of children in need" (http://hancefamilyfoundation.org, 2016).

The Hance Family Foundation is dedicated to providing innovative educational programs for children of all ages and abilities – as a way to honor Emma, Alyson and Katie. Our largest and most far-reaching program is an original self-esteem program for females entitled Beautiful Me…The Emma, Alyson, & Katie Hance Project. The program, fully funded by our Foundation, has reached girls and women in Long Island, New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Florida, Wyoming, Paris, Uganda, and many other areas. Over 28,000 participants (Jan. 2017), representing all socio-economic groups and ethnicities, have learned ways to embrace their unique qualities in settings such as public and private elementary, middle and high schools, institutes of higher education, and schools for those with complex physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges, and speakers of other languages; the hospital, foster care, court, and women's prison systems; and other agencies that serve females in need.

Complementing Beautiful Me is Raising a Beautiful Child, a Hance Family Foundation seminar for parents and others entrusted with the privilege of caring for young girls and boys. Raising a Beautiful Child provides adults with practical tools that can be used to nurture and educate children, while enhancing their self-esteem and coping skills.

Everyone at the Hance Family Foundation knows that #selfesteemmatters

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

At the Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance Family Foundation, we work every day of the year to improve the outcome for females of all ages. We created unique and highly-effective educational-based self-esteem curricula for elementary age girls, one for middle/high school age females and one for college/adult age females. We provide this program, Beautiful Me, free of charge. Our foundation works tirelessly to invite females from all socio-economic groups, all walks of life, and even all areas in the nation to participate. We provide a free, comprehensive Beautiful Me Teacher Training program. We attract and retain hundreds of volunteers because we espouse the actions we teach--we recognize the good in others, we express gratitude, we reinforce others' strengths and we work side-by-side with all volunteers; we are well aware that actions are more powerful than words. <br/>As a national non-profit, we strive to create long-term relationships with all participants, with partner agencies, with volunteers and with supporters. <br/>We also created a thriving program for any adult who is responsible for the care of a child, called Raising a Beautiful Child. This vital program has been taught to thousands so far; Raising a Beautiful Child equips adults with the tools needed to connect with children in a unique way and to help children become more independent. All of our goals are aimed at improving the outcome via increased self-esteem, which in turn improves society at large.

Our Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance Foundation employs many strategies to meet our non-profit's goals. These include, but are not limited, to:<br/>1. We plan and host a variety of successful annual fundraisers to fund our Beautiful Me and Raising a Beautiful Child Programs.<br/>2. The eleven members of the Foundation's Board of Directors, representing a wide range of professions, hold strong commitments to our Foundation and its mission. A twelve-member Advisory Board adds significant expertise and steadfast support. <br/>3. Our Executive Director's outreach to children's and women's groups, supporters and potential benefactors is extensive, as she coordinates the Foundation's daily operations. <br/>4. We conduct pre- and post- Beautiful Me participation data collection using the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scales. Data is collected and analyzed across all variables. In keeping within competent practices, we use the data to guide us for maximum efficiency and effectiveness. <br/>5. We established a healthy grant-writing team that applies for those grants that correlate with our programs.<br/>6. Our Executive Board approves an annual budget which has provided for fiscally sound practices.<br/>7. All volunteers' hours are tracked and celebrated, as we value the spirit of volunteerism and the benefit it provides on both sides of the relationship.<br/>8. Our Executive Committee meets weekly; strategic planning goals are reviewed, updated and created. <br/>9. We use SalesForce to collect, manage and reach all contacts, manage our schedules, oversee all of our task management and create meaningful data bases.<br/><br/>Individual priorities are acknowledged, while we always remember to filter goals, dreams, and questions through two lenses: 1. what is best for the Hance Family Foundation and 2. what strategy will help us build capacity for our foundation.

The Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance Family Foundation began in the summer of 2009; Emma, Alyson and Kate were killed in a tragic accident on July 26, 2009.Their parents, Jackie and Warren Hance, formed this remarkable foundation with the intent to honor their children. Warren Hance often shares with audiences that his only goal was to make sure his daughters' lives mattered and would be remembered. History has taught us that many foundations may start with the best of intentions, but are not sustainable. The Hance Family Foundation has proven the opposite; supporters, income, volunteers, and Beautiful Me participants grow consistently and impressively from year to year. Our foundation is never static in any domain. <br/>We are an extremely lean organization in regards to compensation. Our Hance Family Foundation employs one full-time Executive Director, one part-time Program Administrator, one part-time Administrative Assistant, and we have hired ten Independent Contractors who teach Beautiful Me in the field. <br/>Our foundation partners with hundreds of volunteers consistently throughout each year to also teach Beautiful Me.<br/>We have strong, strategic partnerships with long-standing powerhouses across the United States, with a concentration in New York City. <br/>We have proven our foundation and our programs' versatility and we have committed our resources to improving the outcome for others.

As previously shared, we use the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale when measuring participants' self awareness and insight before and after participating in Beautiful Me. Data analysis revealed that our program is highly effective in changing the way participants think about themselves and others. <br/>We solicit and collect feedback from every Beautiful Me participant, every participant in our Teacher Training program, and every site administrator. We use this feedback to improve our current and future operations. After every fundraiser, a gathering of volunteers and participants are invited to meetings in which reviews/suggestions are shared with the Executive Board. We are constantly evaluating all practices and improving--which again results in increased revenue, increased participation, and increased volunteer commitments.

The Executive Board of the Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance Family Foundation unanimously agrees that our national success and continued growth with matching sustainability is astounding. We have created original programming that has been proven to be highly effective for participants. Emma, Alyson and Kate Hance are known, remembered and appreciated for the lives they lived while here on earth. These beloved sisters motivate legions of volunteers to work day after day, year after year, for others. Jackie and Warren Hance continue to do what so many fear is impossible; they both survive the loss of all of their children by serving others. Jackie and Warren not only fought for survival, they have found success in their foundation.<br/>Future endeavors for our foundation include increased fundraising, long-distance Beautiful Me Teacher Training via on-line courses and aligning with national non-profits that share our vision and audiences. <br/>
