Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In the areas served, there are approximately 179,616 individuals living in poverty. Most families living in poverty must make choices between paying bills and ensuring a child has clothing to wear to school. These families are faced with making a choice between transportation and diapers, because diapers are not covered by any governmental assistance program such as WIC. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, only 23% of WIC recipients are infants and 66% of mothers in the workforce have infants. An average monthly supply of diapers costs approximately $80. The only federal assistance program that can be used for diapers is TANF, but TANF does not have a budget solely for diapers; these dollars must also cover many other expenses including heat, electric and water bills, rent, clothing, transportation, and other basic needs. In Ohio, the maximum TANF benefit for one parent with two children $473, leaving $393 to cover remaining monthly expenses.

Our programs

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

Giving Angels

During November and early December, Hannah’s Treasure Chest is proud to host our annual Giving Angels program which helps local families at or below the poverty level. With the help of local donors and organizations, Hannah’s Treasure Chest provides holiday gifts for the children, age newborn through 12 years.

Each child enrolled through our partner agencies receives two wish-list items such as toys and two needed items, such as clothing or shoes, as well as stocking stuffers.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Families

Many of the families who receive care packages from us are unable to provide a safe bed for their infants and toddlers to sleep in. A family in crisis is usually working desperately to feed, clothe, shelter and educate their children.

Our Beds for Babies program helps families provide a safe crib, mattress, Pack’n’Play or bassinet for their infant or toddler.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers

Dental health has a great effect on the overall health and well-being of children. Poor dental health can even impact the academic performance of children. The goal of our Brighter Smiles program is to provide an age-appropriate dental kit in every care package prepared for children 2 years and older.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The creation of care packages to fill basic needs of children served by the partnering agencies. Items include 5-7 days of outfits, socks & underwear, shoes, books, age appropriate dental kit, games, toys and any equipment (ie. high chair or car seat).

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

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

Hannah's Treasure Chest provides basic necessities such as clothing, diapers, shoes, and equipment (i.e. cribs, highchairs) so families do not have to make these impossible choices. Receiving these items from Hannah's Treasure Chest provides families the ability to pay for other essentials such as electricity and gas, allowing their children to attend school because they have shoes and clothes to wear, stay healthy because of the toothbrushes and diapers we provide, and to bond with their parents at home because of the books and toys we provide.

1) Have a strong network of nonprofit and social service agencies who are providing direct service to children and families in need of basic necessities.

2) Provide a strong communication link between all agencies in the network to provide collaboration and resource sharing not only for all agencies involved, but also for the children and families being served.

3) Have a strong team within Hannah's Treasure Chest to provide a specific point of contact for programs, including volunteer opportunities.

4) To be an outlet for the community to get unwanted and underused items back into the hands of those who are in need and also being responsible for sharing items that are not within the scope of our service to agencies who are a better fit.

1) A strong staff and volunteer team that is trained in areas of expertise.

2) Large warehouse space to adequately sort, shelf, and store items for distribution. This facility also is large enough to accommodate volunteers and volunteer groups in a safe manner.

3) Strong board who understands their duties of governance and fiscal oversight.

2015 - secured additional warehouse space in our current location
