Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Recruit and train more handler-dog teams and facilitate engagements.

Deliver a high quality training/certification program for qualified candidates, re-certify active teams annually, and maintain a support network for active teams (e.g. admin, guidance, oversight, and visit assistance).

Leverage both paid staff, independent contractors, and volunteers to deliver training and support active handlers. Maintain a vast social media presence to share ideas for reaching out to communities.

We will be able to see progress by monitoring the current active teams and the new registrations. We are currently gaining over 258 new likes on our main Facebook page and reaching over 17 thousand viewer engagements per month. We also review our Membership Metrics monthly in our Board Meetings. On 1/1/2019 we had 469 active members and as of 11/4/2019 we have 578. We are projected to have 597 active Members by 12/31/2019.

Our program has grown significantly from those 2 original dog/handler teams, from 2012. We are nationwide and have teams overseas. We were awarded the Red Cross Hometown Heroes award, for multiple years.
