Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

About 15-20% of Pineville's population lives at or below the poverty line. As a suburb of Charlotte, NC, social services are offered in a central location of the city. The challenge is that the location is about an hour away by bus. We offer connections at a local to the social services that exist in the county. We also offer appointments on nights and weekends so clients do not have to take time off work to get the help they need. We help with financial assistance, referrals to get furniture and food.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Most of our clients live paycheck to paycheck. It does not take much to threaten their financial stability. They are only a major car repair bill, medical bill or other unexpected expense away from having their utilities disconnected or losing their home by eviction. We aim to get them the help they need in a time of crisis to keep the crisis from becoming larger and impossible to address.

We do not want to reinvent the wheel or spend a lot of energy in developing duplicate services. Instead we want to act as the conduit to the amazing organizations that already exist and leverage the funding and connections they provide. We also have developed budget mentors to meet with the clients one on one to provide budget education and accountability.

We have developed successful partnerships with existing organizations like Crisis Assistance Ministry, Good Friends, Beds for Kids, Loaves and Fishes and Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to meet the clients' needs. We also have partnered with Digital Charlotte to offer computer literacy classes and Read Charlotte to help provide books and tutors for a local Title 1 school.

Our first metric is the increasing number of people that we are helping as we communicate the services we offer. For all of 2017, we helped about 30 people. In 2018 (through September) we had helped 260 people. But over time we want to educate people financially so they can save and avoid living paycheck to paycheck. We want to teach them to establish an emergency fund. So we will start measuring how often someone returns to us for help, tracking the patterns of requests for help.

In the past 2 years since we formed, we have grown exponentially in the numbers of people we have been able to help in the community. We are on track to help over 300 people in 2018 with over $30,000 in aid. At the beginning of the 2017 and 2018 school years, we gave away backpacks filled with school supplies to every student at Sterling Elementary (a Title 1 school). Also at Sterling, we provide teacher appreciation week because they do not have a PTA. We partner with Read Charlotte at Sterling to provide tutors and books for the children to take home. This fall we offered our first class in digital literacy in partnership with Digital Charlotte. We have provided one mobile food pantry for 150 families in May 2018 and will provide 3 more this school year. We host an annual Potato Drop where we bag nearly 40,000 potatoes for distribution to local soup kitchens, food pantries and other helping organizations. We partner with the Pineville Police Department to host Shop With a Cop
