Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are over 560k homeless people in the United States. About 25% are families displaced because of housing. Our program, described by one participant, as "a makeover for their soul," helps them develop new perspectives, uncover dreams unrealized and emboldens them to think and plan their lives with intention.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Life By Design

Life by Design is a seven-week personal development program rooted in life coaching principles and SMART goals for transitioning out of the shelter. We emphasize intentions and commitment for job-readiness and career building tied to specific actionable items to create a life by design, not default. And, provide grooming and wellness services to participants in the program.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

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

Our goal, starting with the 2018-2019 year is to put 1,000 homeless people through our program.

We partner with shelters and organizations that serve the homeless communities in New York and Arizona. Currently, we are partnered with HelpUSA with a family shelter, and with Safeway Men's Shelter in Queens, as well as with The Other Side Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona.

We have a team of life coaches, salon/barber and wellness partners to implement the program as needed.

During our pilot program, 71% transitioned out of the program, 51% are now pursuing their passions; 42% received a promotion/found a job. Our goals is to reach 1,000 homeless persons this year.
