Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our foster boys have been to an average of 14 different foster placements. With that lack of stability, so does the ability to keep relationships and improve in education. It is no wonder that 80% of the adults in prison today had some experience in the foster system. It also makes sense that 1 in 4 foster boys will be homeless by the age of 22, and less than 50% of foster kids have their High School Diploma by the age of 18.

Our programs

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

Social Development

All of our kids have been to multiple foster placements and as a result have been severely under-parented.  We set high expectation for our boys and our staff act as parents, guiding them forward.  Additionally, the culture we maintain is one of inclusion, encouraging everyone to focus on each boy's strengths.

Population(s) Served

Our charter school is unique in that we only work with our foster boys.  Our small class sizes, familiar teachers, and unique approach to handling our kids' behaviors without expelling them from school is making us successful with educating our boys.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide a stable environment for our boys and surround them with good role models so that they have a chance at being socially successful. Educationally, we are constantly adjusting so that we can best meet their educational needs.

A remote location requires our teens to interact with one-another as well as with the adults who are constantly parenting them. Our days are consistent and structured to promote stability to kids who's lives are anything but stable. We focus on strengths and all but ignore the weaknesses of each individual kid. Our education system is interactive, and forgiving so that our boys don't have to fear being thrown out of school or being made fun of for their educational deficiencies. And our life skills teaching platform ranges from gardening to grooming so that our boys are well prepared for life beyond foster care.

Remote location, self contained charter school, quality staff, consistent programming

We started a second 501C3 last year: "Crossroads Transitions". The program is for our 18 and up population. Our goal is to have a small community of 'tiny houses' so that our boys have a place to land. Additionally, we will be partnering with the local builder's association, and college to work with our kids on a more intimate level so that their ability to be successful in the job world is higher.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
