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

Clearinghouse

The Clearinghouse serves as a center for information and referral services.  Through a network of 80 area churches as well as other community organizations, the Clearinghouse responds to over 4,000 requests each year.  By engaging the help of local churches, we provide responses to immediate and short-term needs such as transportation to medical appointments, child care and minor home repairs. 
 

We provide information and assessments to local churches,  helping them respond in an informed and compassionate way to those who come to them in need.

Population(s) Served

Affordable Housing Connections is a combination of services that help families and individuals in need of housing assistance.  They offer Housing Search Assistance to help those who need to find less expensive or safer housing than they currently have.  They also offer Rapid Re-housing to help those who are currently homeless find new housing.  Finally, they offer the Community Housing Partnership (CHP), a transitional housing program, in collaboration with Community Action House.  CHP provides homeless families and individuals with up to 18 months of affordable housing, mentoring, financial counseling, case management and life skills training.

Population(s) Served

The Faith in Youth Partnership was developed to address the shortage of youth programs in our community that support positive values in which committed people give their time and model good behavior.  It is a collaborative initiative with area middle schools, local churches and faith-based organizations, and the AmeriCorps program.  Twelve AmeriCorps members, paid volunteers, serve as a bridge between the churches and the middle schools to coordinate the resources needed to reach out to at-risk middle school students.
