Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We aim to continue our efforts to serve the state of North Carolina on a larger basis through Crystal Rain Institute. At this time we want to meet the needs of our recovery clients on a daily and weekly monitoring system. Our food distribution program currently allows us to meet the short-term need of a family or individual, but the goal is to be able to meet their needs daily. The health and wellness program serves as a basis in which the whole person is treated and monitored with nutrition classes, dietary training and holistic teaching. We currently are helping single mothers on a selected system, but we want to impact the whole community. Our transformative life skills and life application program enables us to again serve on a selected system, but with a larger financial base and facility we can help the homeless over come the displacement and those re-entering the community after incarceration to obtain solid job skills that will be applicable to needs of the state's employers. We ourselves after training such individual aim to employ them to help us serve and give back to the community of North Carolina.

Treasures of the Heart International Ministries transitional housing and life skill training for men, women, and families. Will offer assistance to frequently homeless, as they move from dependent, often abusive relationships into independent, self-sufficient lifestyles. Additionally, it assists clients in child reunification. All other shelters only offer up to 30 days of housing whereas Treasures of the Heart International Ministries Transitional Housing would offer a one year program to assist them in home ownership and a savings program. On staff will be a chemical dependency counselor, AIDS counselor, and a family reunification counselor to assist clients.

Approximately 20% of the state of North Carolina residents qualifies for assistance. Our client base is zero to low-income people, mainly families, who need emergency help to put food on the table. Nearly half of those served by the program are children. Second Harvest Food Bank operates a warehouse facility where we shop for the donated or rescued food for distribution. The program actively solicits food from local food growers, retailers, wholesalers, and processors.

We are called to grow, not remain stagnant in our spiritual development. The Christian life is a dynamic force that is on a constant continuum that remains in constant tension. When you are not advancing in your spiritual walk you are regressing. The writer of Hebrews reminds us that we are required to move past the elementary principles of the faith to more advanced doctrines. The ability to effectively execute the Christian way of life requires a growing and developing knowledge and understanding of the multitudinous assets provided to every believer. It is our goal here to introduce multiple opportunities for the participants in this program to not only improve their level of physical fitness, but to also improve their spiritual fitness as well. We will incorporate group exercises in which spiritual laws will expressed in ways that are analogous to fitness principles.

We meet our short-term goals as close to projection as possible. We need the committed donors to assist in this great undertaking for the state of North Carolina and the City of Fayetteville. Through Network For Good we hope to get the necessary exposure in the faces of our potential donors. We will aim to use the tools given to be become even more effective in accomplishing the short-term goals. With the tools we can project our long-term goal while working on the immediate needs of our community.

Positive feedback from the community and local church leaders will be our gauge.

As an organization we have accomplished the great task of securing our Christian education department. Crystal Rain Institute has been accepted by the University of North Carolina Department of Education as a "Private Post-secondary Vocational Christian Education Institution," with degree granting authority. Our Christian Counseling Program is designed to engage local leaders with the ability to effectively help the community, churches, shelters, food banks and substance abuse centers. What we have not been able to accomplish is a facility. The lack of financial support, strong donors, and grant-writers have caused a brief stumbling block, but we continue to move forward.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
