Charting impact

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

We seek to meet the needs of our community at many levels. From the most basic need of food, water and shelter, to the more complex needs of healthcare and empowering individuals and families to create efforts to improve their future. Through our partnership network, our ultimate goal is to empower our clients to set and reach their own goals. Just as Maslow stated, when certain needs are met (physiological, safety, love/belonging, and esteem), an individual is able to move forward in achievement toward an ultimate goal. Whether it is a goal of improved health (through dental care and prescription assistance), or seeking and maintaining gainful employment and secure housing (through emergency assistance funds) we want to meet the most immediate need. This allows the individual, or family, to focus on long term goals.

Through volunteer efforts and generous donations, we are able to work with our clients in a variety of ways.
Strategies include providing a licensed bachelor's level social worker in our Emergency Assistance Department. Our Emergency Assistance ranges from assistance with utilities and rent, to meeting pre-employment needs such as specified clothing or footwear and interim housing.
Our network of partners allows us to place clients in contact with resources for interim housing, prescription assistance, dental care and transportation assistance. We work to assist our clients in achieving long-term solutions by meeting a current need or overcoming today's obstacle.

Grant funding, as well as community donations, provide funds to disperse for the programs we provide. A continuous stream of volunteers, thankfully, allows us to meet the demands of daily food delivery through the Meals on Wheels program. Our volunteers also staff our weekly dental clinic and Open Door shower program. A partnership with a local church provides our office and client service location. Thanks to a long established relationship with partner agencies, we participate in weekly calls with our partners to address the most pressing current needs in our community.

As our annual report information (above) demonstrates, we are making an impact in the community.
This year, we have made a commitment to meeting the needs of individuals created by COVID-19 and its complexities. We are dispersing COVID-19 related specific funds to many in our community.
Our next, and ongoing, endeavor is partnering with community agencies to secure federal funding for long-term housing solutions for our homeless and displaced populations.
