Charting impact

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

1. Continue financial sustainability.
2. Seek out new grants and partnerships.
2. Meet the increasing demand for mental health services.
3. Expand the scope of senior services.
4. Build a competitive salary base to retain and recruit employees.
5. Increase Senior Services department to meet growing senior population.
6. Expand services offered in the Southside of San Antonio.
7. Increase support for administration, development, and marketing.

The current or FY 16 (July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016) strategies are to expand fundraising quality and quantity through staff training by APF trained mentors. In addition, JFS will continue strict oversite of the governance practices. The JFS Social Service Program continues to grow due to the increasing size of the senior population. Therefore, the program will become more focused and geared more for the growing needs of seniors. In the past 10 years, the JFS has established salary parity and improved the competitiveness of the current salary structure. The drive for a competitive salary structure to obtain and retain staff will continue.

In an effort to improve fundraising capabilities, the board and agency will increase and hold fast throughout the year the efforts to improve fundraising. JFS is proud of its intern program for LPC's and social workers. This program not only builds long-term community relationships for the agency but also greatly expands JFS's ability to meet the growing demands for services.
JFS continues to search for an affordable "practice management system" the will reduce operating cost while expanding the capability to manage the business.

JFS has maintained its focus on two areas of service, mental health services, and social services. The objective has been and remains to build these to service models to the strongest point possible. To do so JFS has resisted expanding into other service areas thus maintaining the strict and strong correlation to the JFS Mission and Vision Statement. To do so By-Laws have been repeatedly review can adjust as needed. The Governance Committee has worked long hours to hold the focus of the board and the engagement of all board members. The establishment of a "committee-based board" has shortened board meeting time and shifted the real work to the committee room. The establishment of a functioning Management Team has improved staff focus and reduced or eliminated misdirection and improved decision making.
