What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

TFCF aims to address lack of economic opportunities that afford people of color access to affordable housing, reentry opportunities, and entrepreneurship. Safe places for women to reunify with their children is a major problem in the United States. Our agencys top three goals are to create permanent, affordable housing, entrepreneurship and thriving communities. Women of color need ACCESS. Access to services that elevate their financial and economic health and create generational wealth. TFCF's programs and services provide the housing and services needed to support overall health and wellness of our families, increased employment opportunities, financial literacy and general wealth building strategies, and life skills that aim to help women maintain self-sufficiency. Lastly, we aim to eliminate racial and gender systemic inequity within institutional practices that further keep people of color in poverty.

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?
Ending homelessness and re-creating Black Wall Street.

Since our inception, we have assisted over 3,800 homeless women make the transition into self-sufficiency and have reunited 320 children from foster care back with their moms through our various housing programs. Our accomplishments began with creating one 6-bed shelter to now operating 3 emergency shelters, 10 Permanent Supportive Housing Units, and the development of our own affordable housing apartment, The Phoenix Square. Awarded the Crime Prevention through Environmental Design" and the Crime-Free Multi Housing" certification, Phoenix Square sets the standard for low-incoming housing in California.
Since 2012, TFCF has successfully maintained success with our Homes of Hope, permanent-supportive project funded by the U.S. Department of HUD. This project places chronically homeless families directly into their own apartment with the goal of maintaining housing stability. TFCF has provided this support consecutively over the last 12 years with 90% of adults maintaining housing and 82% of adults maintaining or increasing their income.
After successfully expanding its housing model to the Bay Area to launch the Brighter Futures Home for women and children in 2018, TFCF expanded its housing services to serve formerly incarcerated men. In one year, TFCFs Brighter Futures program served nine men and transitioned two into permanent housing.
Additionally, we successfully implemented two federal awards from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (SAMHSA) for our Positive Futures project to assist women successfully transition from incarceration back into society. To date, Positive Futures has served over 360 formerly incarcerated women and has maintained a 0% recidivism rate.
TFCF has expanded our reentry services with the implementation of our Rental Assistance Program funded by the California Board of State and Community Corrections and our Legal Employment Accessing Profit (LEAP) project funded by the California Governors office of Business and Economic Developments California Community Reinvestment Grants Program. TFCF has served 365 formerly incarcerated women and men between both programs with legal, employment, housing, and supportive services respectively.
TFCF received a donation of a restaurant and 10,000 square foot building in 2020 to re-purpose to enhance our employment development and entrepreneurship program for women. In 2023, TFCF opened the Black and Brown Opportunities for Profit (BBOP) Center to eliminate racial and gender systemic inequity by providing a protected environment where women entrepreneurs have access to whats needed to build, grow, and scale profitable businesses.
Within one year, the BBOP Centers Business Academy has served 52 women, supported 30 women with $90,000 in scholarships, invested $100,000 in capital to small businesses, partnered with 10 venture capitalist firms, hosed 3 pitch events, and help 5 business mixers.

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 analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • 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.
