Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We reach out to the homeless and the people who are on the verge of becoming homeless and help them get the resources they need to get out of crisis and move to self sufficiency. We do this by building relationships built on trust so that we can help uncover the real barriers keeping people stuck in poverty. Once we identify the barriers then we help them overcome the barriers by locating resources available to help and make sure that the resources are accessible to the people who need them. We monitor their results and track them to a path of self-sufficiency and success. We are building a Success community where they can feel their continued success is important to our success.

Charting impact

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

Moving people from crisis to lifelong self-sufficiency.
Get each person out of crisis and fuel them to rebuild through mental, physical, and spiritual healing.
Empower each person to self-sufficiency and provide them with positive lifelong support relationships.
Creating "HOPE in a Box" that offers a proven framework for community, public service providers and church leaders around the world to heal people out of homelessness.

Partnership with groups and organizations who want to help in our community. We also partner with other medical, mental health, addiction and homeless organizations who are servicing the same demographic of clients. We use them to grow our reach, grow our services we can provide and so we can immediately meet the needs of our clients. We also use already existing systems and programs to help our clients so we do not have to reinvent programs that work and we do not have to build them from the ground up all we do is come in and offer a continuum of care from the time a person has a desire to change until the change is successful. This helps lower the recidivism rate for our clients.

We are build of a few employees and a large group of volunteers and groups who provide us with people who want to help the marginalized people in our community. We have tapped into over 15 churches and 25 organizations to build a huge network of support for our clients. Long term we will be working on some in house solutions to help with housing, rehab, life skills training and job training. As we develop these we are already helping in each and every area by teaming up with other groups and organizations who can help in each area.

We have moved 300+ people off the streets in 2 1/2 yrs. We are assigning them teams to mentor each client. We are in need of a large number of volunteers to be friends to these people. We have only had 7 return to a life on the streets. We are working on building a program we call the Transformation Station to help more people in a single location to exponentially grow our results.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
