Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

By June 31, 2020, every child in Roosevelt will graduate high school on time, enroll and graduate from a post-secondary education, be it vocational training, military service, technical school, junior college or a four year university. Families will be supported to reach optimal emotional and physical health, as well as economic security. Community residents will feel a safe, vibrant neighborhood that is thriving in its commercial tax base and supporting locally owned businesses.

Community Based Research<br/>* Identify community based data that assesses assets and areas of improvement<br/>* Engaging residents in identify and evaluating community data<br/>* Providing opportunities to share results and engage in action-oriented dialogue <br/><br/>Advocacy<br/>* Being a trusted community voice<br/>* Engage and mobilize community residents, leaders and organizations <br/>* Empowering and “giving voice” to youth and families in Roosevelt and those who serve them<br/>* Using collaborative leadership to build and/or participate in strategic alliances, coalition and multi-sector partnerships<br/><br/>Supportive Services<br/>*Developing, scaling and sustaining innovative, community-based supportive services proven to be effective to youth and families.

Bridging numbers with the voices of the residents is our strongest resource in understanding our social impact our work has on youth and families, as well as public policies. Findings are made publicly available through our annual Impact Report.
