What we aim to solve

A clear impact of the Center is combatting hunger with healthy meals. The YRCC has served the central Arizona Yarnell region for 42 years. This rural region's population is aging, and food insecurity is a reality for many low-income residents. The area's 2016 unemployment rate is 24.2%. Half of residents age 75 and over live in poverty, as do 25% of those aged 55 to 64. Two-thirds rely on SSI with median annual earnings of $17,611. Of YRCC participants 35.8% are in their 60s, and 34.6% are in their 70s. The mean age is 67. The mode is 70. One-quarter use the YRCC daily, 15% twice a week, and 44.4% weekly. Nearly half of the service population are females (48%). Over half of clients report other family members also use YRCC services (52%). Most nutrition programs clients are White (76%), followed by Native American (19%), and Hispanic (5%).

The YRCC's thrift store operation is a growing source of revenue for the organization. Thrift store revenue helps to bridge the gap between food program costs and the YRCC's contract with the Northern Arizona Council of Governments to operate these nutrition programs. The thrift store also provides residents with an opportunity to purchase needed clothing, small appliances, furniture and baby/children's equipment at a very low cost.

Economically disadvantaged people

Club Yarnell is the umbrella name for the organization's many social and educational programs that helps to mitigate the social isolation in this rural area of Arizona. The YRCC offers senior well-being workshops, health checks, exercise and other classes, as well as social activities. In 2016, the Center increased health screenings, health promotion and health education classes in response to the community’s need for health care information.
The Center’s role as the community hub where people gather is demonstrated through its array of five different categories of educational and social programs. Community members can get information through Bureaucracy Bootcamp (e.g., classes learning how to apply for Medicare, or to navigate other public systems). Health and Wellness programs include Tai Chi, blood pressure checks, flu shots, healthy eating workshops and other health oriented activities. Arts program offering examples include Paint-A-Painting and interior design. The Fun and Games category goes beyond Monday’s board Game Night to include dances and other social activities. The fifth category is “Serendipity” which covers all other programs that don’t fit into the first four groups. The YRCC is the only place in the region offering such diverse and needed programming. The Center continues to add requested workshops, classes, and events averaging 4 to 5 programs a month. In 2016, 200 plus individuals attended workshops, special events and activities such as “Game Night”.

Charting impact

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

YRCC goals flow from its mission statement to provide services and programs that promote health and wellness and enhance the quality of life throughout the greater community. Goal1) decrease food insecurity in the Yarnell region among the elderly. Goal 2) promote the health of the region's residents. Goal 3) enhance the quality of life for residents in the region. Goal 4) relates to the increasing demand for nutrition programs beyond the YRCC's government funding levels. The YRCC is striving to grow and diversify its funding to help bridge the gap between the need for food services and revenues.

The YRCC is the only area organization providing Meals on Wheels (MOW) to home bound elderly in the region and congregate meals five days a week. Meals provide one-third of the required daily allowance of nutrients. MOW clients receive healthy snacks and weekly deliveries of fresh produce from the Yarnell Food Bank. MOW drivers also bring the Center's monthly newsletter. They assess client well-being by observing room temperatures, and other home environment signs that indicate the need for additional services. The YRCC offers senior well-being workshops, exercise and other classes, as well as educational and social activities through Club Yarnell. Club Yarnell programs are open to all. These social activities impact the social isolation many rural and elderly residents experience. A major focus of YRCC's programs is promoting residents' health and wellness increasing health promotion and education classes to meet the community's need for health care information.

The YRCC increased its regional focus adding Service Area Ambassadors from around the region to the Board. Bringing new expertise and insights to the Board and enabled broader marketing and outreach. The Board conducted a regional needs assessment and developed a 2017-2020 Strategic Plan. In 2017, the YRCC legally changed its name with the Arizona Corporation Commission to reflect its expanded service array and service region. A Fund Development Coordinator was hired to work with the Board's Fund Development Committee to develop and implement a fund development work plan. Resulting in the organization being able to purchase donor management software, increase grant revenue and corporate sponsorships for needed equipment and structural enhancements to the YRCC building. Although the YRCC has only one full-time and 2 part-time staff, its strength derives from the commitment of its volunteers. In 2017, 61 volunteers donated 6,139 hours a value of $149,499.

The YRCC made great strides in achieving its goals in the past two years. It diversified and increased revenue streams. Engaged in successful outreach to expand regional Board representation. Developed and implemented evaluation procedures allowing it to measure its accomplishments. It also made significant improvements to the building. Re-organization of thrift store displays, installation of security cameras, and the donation of a new cash register increased sales. Club Yarnell expanded health, education and social programs. Growth in the Meals on Wheels and congregate lunch program are enabling the YRCC to combat hunger in the region. Next steps include expanding health promotion program offerings and increasing revenues to bridge the gap between the need for food programs and current funding levels. This will be accomplished by implementing its recently acquired fundraising software and building upon the success of its 2017 inaugural annual signature fund raising event.
