Here to Serve

Monrovia, CA   |  http://www.heretoserve.org/

Mission

We believe parents of school-aged children should not have to lose their job, health, home or enter into bankruptcy to care for their child or spouse battling cancer. Therefore, we mobilize people and resources to meet daily living requirements of families who do not qualify for government assistance.

Charting impact

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

• Be financially strong to insure that we are able to meet the needs of more families and grow our program nationwide in the future. Increase the number of families we are able to help in a given year from 30 to 150 in the next year, 300 in two years, and 500 in three years.

• To be viewed as the leading program of comprehensive support by a charity in the five-county area in and surrounding Los Angeles to reduce the physical, emotional and financial impact on younger, lower- and middle-class families (the invisibly underserved) who have a critically-ill child or parent of young children in the home.

• Foster awareness at children's hospitals and pediatric units about the benefits and importance of partnering with Here to Serve to bring aid to families who do not qualify for government assistance…the invisibly underserved middle and lower-middle class families.

* Increase funding by writing more grants now that we have been in existence for 5 years, a threshold for foundations to view you as a viable nonprofit to provide funding to.

* Once we are provided grant(s) of $250,000/year for 6 years, hire a Director of Development to increase income and make Here to Serve more sustainable.

* Once we are provided grant(s) of $250,000/year for 6 years, hire paid staff so we are not dependent on volunteers who can come and go at will keeping the organization from growing and being better known through the 5 counties in and around Los Angeles.

* Reshape our board with new members who have the ability to give more in time, talent and treasure and can help build our brand and awareness.
