Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Hunger, homelessness, addiction, and financial struggle are a part of the daily lives of many individuals and families in Springfield, MO. According to Ozark Food Harvest, 1 in 4 households access a food pantry for supplemental nutrition. The current poverty rate for individuals is 25.9% (ACS 2012-2016) compared to 15.3% in Missouri (ACS 2012-2016). In 2017, 1,877 individuals checked into substance abuse treatment in Greene County, MO. Alcohol is the primary drug problem followed by methamphetamine, marijuana, and heroin. Those seeking housing, with or without addiction issues, are often unable to afford it.

Charting impact

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

Victory Mission seeks to understand the causes of homelessness, addiction, hunger, and poverty, so they can design interventions that alleviate the problem. Causes that we have identified include:

- Men not available to support their families and single mothers struggling to get by on an individual income and/or welfare assistance,
- A skills gap for those men and women seeking living-wage employment,
- A childhood history of trauma that leads to self-medicating and eventual substance abuse addiction,
- A cycle of criminal behavior associated with high levels of recidivism and blacklisting from employment,
- A local culture of generational poverty, where children in poverty grow up to be adults in poverty. This generational cycle includes Ruby Payne’s “hidden rules of class” and inexperience budgeting or maximizing resources.

The primary goal of the project is to create an intentional pipeline of services that empowers men and women dealing with addiction issues for living wage employment.

Victory Mission focuses on the local causes of poverty by serving “sojourners” in the outreach and restoration sides of service delivery. Outreach includes 30 days of free consecutive shelter stay, a food pantry, and distribution of resources through Single Moms Rock.

Workforce Development addresses cycles of unemployment. Men and women are able to attend classes, complete internships, or participate in apprenticeships to develop skills and learn about long-term employment.

The Restoration side of the ministry is long-term and more intentional in nature. Individuals receive case management, licensed mental health care, certified substance abuse counseling, evidence based soft skills training, reliable shelter, and paid employment in social enterprise (coffee, warehouse, kitchen). Individuals graduate Victory with an increase in capacity to; serve their children through modeling positive behaviors, their employer by producing more as an employee, and their community as a tax-paying citizen that is engaged in the life around him/her.

Springfield Victory Mission plans to generate $2,310,000 in revenue in 2019 to cover the projected expenses of $1,956,800. The surplus of $353,200 (cash + in-kind donations) will help sustain operations in early 2020, when cash flow is down. The development department is responsible for generating $1,690,000 and the programs department is responsible for generating $620,000 ($450,000 Cash and $170,000 in-kind).

In 2018, 11 of the individuals who entered the restoration program completed the intake process and received support for at least six months, eventually entering phase three of the program. All 11 of them graduated with living wage jobs at employers like Springfield Remanufacturing Company. The 11 individuals that graduated with living wage jobs have stability scores of 4 or higher. Victory Mission will continue to expand the intake process to increase the number of graduates from phase three of the restoration program with living wage jobs.
