Charting impact

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

We dream of communities:
• with the lowest levels of poverty in the nation;
• where employment and decent housing are accessible by all;
• where health outcomes are excellent;
• where vibrant community life emerges from diversity; and,
• where all show compassion to those in need.

In 2015 our goals are to:
- launch the Sunrise Center as a new community center
- raise the gifts and loans to purchase it by 12/31/15
- complete this years' cycle of qualitative and quantitative data gathering and analysis
- co-lead the launch of Rockwood Pathways Project
- expand the after school program for refugee children
- launch an ESL school for adults
- recruit and engage 600 neighbors in community-building activities
- grow our Community Navigator team from 8 to 12

Collaboration: we work to align existing resources on behalf of those who cannot do this for themselves
Sunrise Center: we maintain a place where all can be engaged in community
Neighborliness: we recruit, train and release neighbors to solve their own problems

Our staff is currently 6 FTE, and will likely grow to 10 FTE mid-2015.
We have MOU's and other forms of intentional partnerships with scores of governmental units, faith centers, healthcare providers, educational institutions, businesses and neighbors. These parties are local regional, national and international in scope.

Since our founding in January 2013, our growth has been explosive. We engaged over 1,400 volunteers in 2014, and engaged hundreds of previously isolated neighbors. As a result of our efforts and those of our partners, survey response to the question, "I see positive changes in my neighborhood" went from 43% positive to 55% positive. Large improvements are also evident for questions on neighborhood satisfaction and intent to move out.
