Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

1. Expand our Drop In Center to include short term care because we recognize the need is there.
2. We will continue our outreach in order to spread awareness of our cause, mission, and values.
3. We would like to grow our network of contacts with similar organizations in order to share important information and resources.

The Wayne Foundation historically has had a huge following in the online social media communities. We plan to continue that practice by spreading awareness through Twitter, Facebook, our own podcast, and News Outlets. Additionally, President Jamie Walton lectures about human trafficking topics and her own DMST experiences throughout the country. All speaking fees are directly paid to The Wayne Foundation. It is our hope that our survivor-centered approach to client rehabilitation and the Wayne Foundation's survivor leadership will further expose our organization to like-minded individuals, businesses, organizations, and groups.

The Wayne Foundation's capabilities lie directly in their board of directors and in their fiscal responsibility.

President - Jamie Walton not only is a survivor of domestic minor sexual trafficking, but also has a successful background in accounting. She understands the business side of running a non profit corporation, in addition to understanding survivor experiences and needs for rehabilitation.

VP - Kevin Smith has millions of fans around the world. His co-founding of this organization provides us with vast amounts of exposure that any npo could only dream of having.

Treasurer - William Bittner is an experienced financial consultant who is now retired. His financial director experience includes Pepsi Co.

Adviser - Dr. John Fite is a clinical psychologist with years of experience treating patients, including those suffering from extreme trauma. In addition, he also has previous experience on the board of directors for a youth shelter for homeless boys.

Additionally, The Wayne Foundation prides itself for the organization partnerships it has established. We work directly with those involved in the fight against child trafficking. These partnerships include law enforcement, DCF, and other non-profit organizations.

Our rate of success is in our ability to serve our clients, and to meet their needs. If we are successful we will be able to expand to short term care in order to provide full service shelter accommodations and a needed safe place.

The Wayne Foundation spent five years raising the money for a Drop In Center, because we felt having at least two years worth of budget raised would be a wise financial choice. Once the money was raised we established a center that has been praised by all who see it. Clients can access a variety of services, including transportation to and from the facility at no cost to them. Sadly, many of the referrals we receive are to provide short term, over night care. Though we have access to a suitable facility we can not afford the payroll that it would cost per year to operate such a shelter. Our long term goal is to overcome this financial hurdle and establish services that we feel are overwhelmingly needed.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
