Charting impact

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

ECTLC main goal is to present the gospel of Jesus Christ to all that come willingly to hear. We never force our beliefs in the gospel on anyone and do not discriminate in any way. We have determined to become all things to all people and to achieve this goal we have established two secular based programs along with our three Christ centered programs so that all that come to receive a hand up can reach for it. We are embarking on a new goal for the 2014-15 year in establishing programs for aging out foster youth 18-24 years old. We have researched the problem and have set our attention to establish a continuum of care for this needy population here in San Diego County.

We are hiring a staff to met the need of this new goal to assist aging out foster youth and have formed a steering committee of staff, board members and concerned citizens to guide this process to completion. We are meeting with local government, social service and foster parent groups to identify those at risk in the system. We are launching a pilot program utilizing five of our transitional living rooms and will case manage 20 of these aging out youth beginning late summer of 2014.

The organizations board and staff are able to meet this new challenge and not only identify the need but develop a real solution so that these aging out youth no longer become a bad statistic. We currently have the licensed counselors, case managers and facility to begin a pilot program. We are hiring a Director of the program in June and hope to begin as early as July 1, 2014.

We have established a goal and have established a steering committee. We have met with all social service, government and foster parent groups determining we could provide a hand up in this community problem. The Board of Directors has met and determined to go ahead with a pilot program as the funding stream allows. We are hiring a program Director in June. We have met with the city of El Cajon to determine the possibility of building a new facility on our existing property and have met with their approval. Our steering committee is meeting to establish a capital campaign, major donor fundraising events and architectural plans for the new facility.
