Charting impact

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

Our main goals are: 1) ensuring school success, 2) preventing sexual and domestic violence, and 3) addressing basic needs while promoting long-term stability.

Ensuring School Success
• Partners For Success staff design family learning plans with students, parents and teachers to improve academic success and coach parents on how they can support their child's education.

• Child Care Aware staff works with childcare providers so to ensure children in their care are safe and participating in early learning activities to prepare for kindergarten.

• Our resource center staff and volunteers conduct child education checks during intakes and refer families to school-based family support workers.

• Lewis House advocates discuss school success at family intakes, parent goal-planning and weekly follow-up. They coordinate backpack donations and provide transportation to school enrollment.

Preventing Sexual and Domestic Violence
• Lewis House staff provide safety-planning for women and children fleeing domestic/sexual abuse.

• Lewis House advocates provide safe support groups for women, teens and children healing from domestic and sexual violence.

• Partners for Success staff provide safety-planning and connections to Lewis House for families.

• Resource center employees discuss domestic violence concerns with clients, conduct safety planning and connect people with Lewis House when necessary.

Addressing Basic Needs and Promoting Self-Sufficiency
• Food Shelf workers provide food support to families and individuals in need.

• Resource center staff and volunteers provides resource referrals for employment, early childhood family education, and free tax preparation services to promote long-term stability.

• The 360 Communities Rosemount Resource Center offers Kids in the Kitchen classes on cooking nutritious meals, arts classes and educational field trips to engage youth in positive community activities.

• Partners For Success staff provide referrals for basic needs like food, and promote long-term stability.

• Lewis House Shelter staff provide for basic needs with food and clothing, and conduct goal-planning so women can move out of the shelters and work toward long-term stability.

• Armful of Love connects low-income families with holiday gifts and meals.

1.) Two programs to ensure school success from birth through high school graduation.
2.) Sexual and domestic violence prevention and intervention.
3.) Five food shelves and two resource centers to stabilize individuals and families and promote long-term stability.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
