Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Ann's Heart is working to provide welcoming, inclusive space for all Phoenixville area people. We are re-purposing buildings on a vacant campus into places for individuals or other non-profits to create programs that fit a specific need or gap in existing services to serve our growing community. As affordable housing becomes increasing hard to find in our area / county, our Code Blue Center provides emergency support for those neighbors affected by lack of housing, addiction, loss/change in jobs, or other traumatic/emergency need. Our community education center - the Home of Education, Arts, Resources, and Technology (HEART) - will provide affordable (and often FREE) space to community members and organizations that look to teach, share skills/knowledge, and grow community through education.

Charting impact

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

Our goals are to:

Listen to and engage the surrounding community to identify needs that are not being met by existing services.
Partner with and/or support other organizations to provide solutions to these gaps in services by providing welcoming and affordable space in which to serve the greater community.
Be self-sustaining as much as possible in a changing economy but utilizing our existing spaces to help self-fund our existing and future programs.

To listen and engage: We have formed several committees and developed a Board of Directors that reflects our community. By attending events, listening at various community meetings, working with our neighbors and community partners, we are always learning and collecting information on how best to meet the needs of our community.

For partnerships: We aim to collaborate in all we do. Whether it comes to fundraising events or programs that support a need, our organization first looks to whom it might partner with and then develops strategies for utilizing our shared resources to take action.

For self-sufficiency: Ann's Heart is working diligently to finalize improvements to our community education center so that we may open the doors to the community. Through event rentals in our cafeteria/kitchen space and spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floors (classrooms/offices) we hope to cover our operating expenses so that more grant funds, donations, and fundraising dollars may go directly to the programs and people we aim to serve.

We have space!

Our organization is fortunate to have developed a long-term agreement, with intention to purchase, the properties we currently manage and utilize for public programs. We have a wonderful team of talented individuals from all walks of life and professional outlets who make up our Board of Directors, Staff, and Volunteer Committees to guide and actively participate in the work being done here to reach our goals.

Our Code Blue Center is going into its fourth full season this November.
Since opening its doors, the Code Blue Center has served almost 200 neighbors in need, providing safe, warm shelter, showers, laundry, and meals to those who need it most during the cold weather months. We have worked hard to ensure that almost all guests have been referred to longer-term shelter or housing, and are connected with other human services organizations to provide needed support.

The Home of Education, Arts, Resources, and Technology (HEART) will launch October/November of 2019 as a community education center. We successfully received our certificate of occupancy and are finalizing cosmetic repair/update items to allow us to open our doors.

In only 4 years of existence, Ann's Heart has completed two large matching-grant campaigns, raising over $130,000 in less than two years from new donors. We have launched two large-scale fundraising events in partnership with other organizations to raise awareness and funds for local shelters and our community center. https://www.pxvbedraces.org http://www.dinerenvert.org

Looking ahead, we are excited to launch the HEART and welcome the community to build and grow through education at our site. We hope to provide space to other non-profits that do incredible work in our area, so that they may expand their capabilities and service numbers. And most importantly, we are looking forward to many more years of providing welcoming and inclusive space for ALL Phoenixville area people.
