Charting impact

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

Goal 1: Increase the percentage of donated monies to be used for our mission by 20%.
Goal 2: Revise and update Office Policies i.e.-office hours, increasing clients. Then, implement and supervise the policy more efficiently.
Goal 3: Evaluate the administration and their effectiveness for the Mission and Community.
Goal 4: Renegotiation of Fundraising efforts and agreement.
Goal 5: Expanding our efforts to get our name and mission out to our community and neighbors.
Goal 6. Expanding TEAC's Board of Trustees

Goal 1: We continually seek ways to increase donations by creating engaging appeals, and partnering with area businesses, civic organizations, and schools.
Goal 2: In 2012, TEAC became a member of the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank. In 2018, we remained a member in good standing with the Food Bank.
Goal 3: The Emergency Assistance Center staff saw a 90% increase in new clients from 2012 to 2013. In 2018, 11,148 service visits were made at our Center.
Goal 4: Our fundraising expenses are kept at a minimum by only sending four appeal letters by mail per year. We do not use a paid fundraiser. The printing of letters is currently donated and we are able to use the Chamber of Commerce's permit for bulk mailing.
Goal 5: The Executive Director regularly speaks at area organizations and there are many community drives to support us.
Goal 6: In 2012, TEAC had 4 board members. In 2018, we have 7 members who are community leaders and offer diversity in talents and backgrounds.

Goal 1: We will increase donor base through direct mail and increase public relations with the community through regular food drives and fundraisers.
Goal 2: We have restructured employee evaluations. We revised and updated the Volunteer Handbook. Three additional employees trained with the Akron Canton Food Bank to be Serve Safe Certified.
Goal 3: We have expanded our service area and now serve 12 communities. Our visibility continues to grow in the communities in which we serve.
Goal 4: We currently have a fundraising committee comprised of board members who are committed to serving and to expand services at the Center.
Goal 5: We continue to use social media as a viable source of marketing for this agency. We continue to be a regular presence in our local media. All of the staff and board continue to speak on behalf of The Emergency Assistance Center to various churches and organizations.
Goal 6: We have seven board members from diverse backgrounds.

Goal 1: By increasing funding, we will be better able to serve our current clients and will continue to look at expanding our services and areas.
Goal 2: By having a well defined policy, our stakeholders have a clear message on why and how we are obtaining our long term goals.
Goal 3: We believe that The Emergency Assistance Center will continue to grow, not only by volunteers and donors but by clients. We believe that it will continually positive identity within the communities in which we serve.
Goal 4: Our Fundraising committee continues to work on goals of fundraising and event in which this will occur. They report to our Board of Directors.
Goal 5: We believe that our Social Media presence will continue and will look at ways to expand and use other forms of social media to talk about not only the Emergency Assistance Center but to talk about food insecurity in our community.
Goal 6: We are looking to retain and to continually train our board members.
