Charting impact

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

Mission Arlington / Mission Metroplex continues its exempt purpose by meeting physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs of the community.

Mission Arlington / Mission Metroplex provides a wide variety of services, both within the community and at our headquarters in downtown Arlington. These services provide solutions for all the categories of needs mentioned and include:

• Physical needs

o Our food pantries provide groceries
o We provide clothing, household goods, and furniture
o Our clinics provide free medical and dental care
o Our Front Room program provides direct financial assistance for bills.
o Transportation services help homeless and at-risk families go to work and get children to school and day care.
o Holiday events include providing Thanksgiving dinners, a Christmas store that provides toys to families free of charge, and our annual fall festival and Easter egg hunts give children opportunities for safe and fun activities.

• Intellectual needs

o Our afterschool programs help children with homework and to learn to read
o Our English as a Second Language classes provide language instruction

• Emotional needs

o Our Counseling services help people work through emotional pain and relationship issues
o Our neighborhood based programs for children, youth, and adults help residents foster healthy relationships through sports leagues, crafts programs, summer activity centers, field trips, and more

• Spiritual needs

o We provide Bible Studies and prayer services in neighborhoods throughout our community
o We hold special evangelistic outreaches such as revival services and Rainbow Express (our version of a Vacation Bible School or Backyard Bible Club)

All services are provided free of charge.

Since 1986, Mission Arlington / Mission Metroplex has been working to carry out the mission described above. Our assets for accomplishing these tasks include:

• Close partnerships with churches, schools, businesses, and social service organizations in our community to multiply all of our effectiveness.
• A commitment to using volunteers for all our programs helps us be more efficient, engages the community with our work, and provides a platform for training and dispersal of volunteers throughout our community, the region, and the nation
• A focus on seeing the people we serve as people and never as program recipients helps transform “clients" into friends, guests, and fellow workers. Today, about 1/3 of our volunteers are people who were once recipients of our services and are now serving others.
• An organizational culture of economic efficiency that lets us consistently operate with 3% or less of donations being used for management overhead
• A strong reputation in our community for fiscal integrity and capability to meet needs in our community
• A consistently transparent approach to our work: we are independently audited each year, post our annual reports on our website, and are members in good standing/have high reviews with nonprofit accountability organizations including Charity Navigator, Guidestar, The Better Business Bureau, and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability
• Award-winning core leadership with long-term commitment to the mission of Mission Arlington / Mission Metroplex

In 2012, Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex met a variety of needs . Over 250 families were assisted daily in our emergency assistance program receiving food, clothing and furniture and thousands were seen in our dental and medical clinics. After school programs assisted thousands of children with tutoring and snacks. A variety of neighborhood programs provided families and children with fun, safe activities. Families received new toys at Christmas, turkeys and food at Thanksgiving and other holiday activities were provided. Weekly Bible studies and prayer services were held throughout our community. Special activities such as revivals, camps and backyard Bible clubs were held throughout the year. Examples of growth in our efforts in the past three years include expanding our medial clinic, adding a new summer camp for teenagers, growing our counseling services, planting new churches, and stepping up our disaster preparedness efforts (for tornadoes and other potential local crises).

There continue to be critical needs in the medical and dental areas as well as emergency assistance. Even though many individuals have been assisted in these areas, more resources are needed as individuals in our community continue to find themselves in crisis. Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex continues to seek resources to provide more care in our clinics and in the emergency assistance area. Many needs still exist in all areas and we constantly look for ways to provide for families in our community. There are more children that need tutoring, more patients that need medical care, more families that need help paying an electric bill, more adults that need a ride to work, and more people that need to hear about the love of Christ. We are excited for the future of Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex and would love it if you would be a part.
