How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Operation Care International serves homeless individuals and impoverished families in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area and impoverished children around the world, partnering with ministries in 47 countries (as of 2022).

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    A homeless family that we helped during the winter storm of February 2021 were forced to leave their temporary shelter; the mom (whose husband abandoned her and the children) of nine could not work because she had no transportation. When we learned of her new, emergency circumstances, we contacted our largest donors directly and mobilized efforts to obtain for them some food and blankets, warm clothes, and diapers, as well as for her a used vehicle so that she could travel to work.
