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?

To continue our philanthropic programs and be a source of support and help for people of all ages who are in need of the services we provide.

Continue policies that have made our programs successful; to identify unmet community needs and expend surplus funding to meet those needs; grow our member base.

Our volunteers commit to supporting our regular and extra outreach programs and surplus funds allow us to provide more support to people in need in our community. Assistance League Thrift Shop continues to increase its revenues every year, providing more financial support for our programs.

The greatest indicator is seeing the growth of our programs as determined by the needs in the community. We work closely with the agencies and individuals who refer people in need to us. We survey school counselors who work with our Operation School Bell® program to determine our successes and where improvements in the program are needed. Our dental partners provide feedback about the patients they have helped through our Operation Healthy Teeth program. The Rape Recovery Center provides feedback as to whether we provided a sufficient number of Assault Survivor Kits. Member surveys give suggestions and strategies for better meeting our goals. Our Board and committee chairs carefully use the feedback garnered from surveys, comments, referrals, etc. to monitor the progress of each program.

In 2018 - 2019, Assistance League of Salt Lake City gave 86 cents of every dollar spent back to the community though the following programs: Operation School Bell® - Distributed bags of new school clothing to almost 5,000 elementary school children; 262 middle school students were served through our Old Navy shopping events. Operation Healthy Teeth provided urgent dental treatment to a record 217 children in need. Book Bank volunteers read to 1,758 Head Start children, provided each with a new book and dental care products. Book Bank also gave 2,000 books to Title I schools to support summer reading. Brighter Tomorrows gave clothing to 195 clients re-entering the work force or returning to school and who were referred social service agencies. Act III entertained over 1,400 seniors in care facilities. Over 2800 individuals were served by our Consociates Auxiliary. Baby Bundles provided 1,100 layettes and baby care items to new parents; Working through the Rape Recovery Center, Assault Survivor Kits® provided clothing and toiletries to 1,700 victims of sexual assault. Eye on the Community provided over 300 children, teens and homeless hospice patients with goods and services. Assisteens® Auxiliary served over 650 children, teens, seniors and the homeless with needed goods and services.
