Mission

Our Mission:  To serve the residents of Canyon Lake by providing vital social service resources as well as life-enriching recreational and educational opportunities.
We serve the Canyon Lake, TX area; specifically the zip codes of 78133, 78623 and portions of 78132.

Notes from the nonprofit

CRRC of Canyon Lake prides itself in being largely self-funded through our adjoining Thrift Store. However, we have counted on an annual grant from a local entity to assist with funding for the food pantry and financial crisis assistance program. In the past two years, that grant has decreased due to less revenue at the source. This has cut our income by more than $30,000, creating a difficult situation for us. We may be forced to reduce or limit the amount of assistance we are able to give to needy families.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We provide an emergency food pantry, delivered meals on wheels and financial assistance to those in need in our community. We have a set population that uses us regularly for food and financial assistance. Many of these are seniors or disabled individuals who are on a fixed income. The rest are people who work sporadically, and/or have limited skills for the occupations available in our area but do not have the resources to move somewhere they could make a better living. They also have difficulty getting approval for government benefits or renewing them because of the distance to the main office. Many of our disabled have been diagnosed with mental disorders. Another large segment are unable to receive regular physical healthcare for their illnesses. We are also located in the center of the second fastest-growing county in the nation, so our numbers continue to grow.

Charting impact

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

We

As our community continues to grow, needs do also. If CRRC is going to continue to serve the community we need to expand the services we offer. We also need to provide for increased food storage to meet the demands on our food pantry. In order to meet these requirements, we have embarked on an expansion project. While we raise funds to raise the roof of our new building, we are also establishing plans and partnerships to create a multi-purpose facility to provide basic medical screening via telehealth; mental health counseling; job/employment coaching and training; and classes on cooking and nutrition for dealing with some chronic illnesses.

We have formed partnerships with medical and mental health providers, as well as funding sources. We are establishing Memorandums of Understanding with other entities in Comal County to come serve our clients weekly or monthly hosting regular "clinics" to make access easy. We have already moved our own services into our new facility.

Our new facility has the space to host all of the entities we are talking with. We need more time in the day, but otherwise we have all we need to get our new programs/services running. We will be starting to schedule their days and times soon. We will coordinate our volunteers with the schedules of other agencies if they are in need of assistance.

Now that we have built the new Resource facility, we will focus on two things:
1) scheduling other agencies for office hours; and
2) funding and constructing a new community playground.

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 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 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 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.
