USDA Commodities Program: USDA food distributed daily; one monthly allotment per family, eligibility based on income.
CalFresh (Food Stamp) and Medi-Cal application assistance.

Goals & Strategy

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

Goal 1: CRC program participants will receive appropriate and effective resource navigation assistance.
Goal 2: Survivors of domestic violence will find and maintain safe, decent, stable and affordable housing as they seek to establish an independent life.
Goal 3: CRC program participants will have consistent and stable access to nutritious foods.

Goal 1 Strategies: Develop a plan that creates, implements, and tracks individual asset development plans; Assist all eligible CRC program participants to enroll for any applicable basic benefits; Continue to implement the Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) database to ensure effective impact measurement; Ensure that all program participants have access to the appropriate set of resources that will measurably strengthen self-sufficiency progress.

Goal 2 Strategies: Expand housing capacity for DV victims; Establish a Community Support Model of mobile advocacy and flexible funding for DV program participants; Expand access to comprehensive legal services for all participants; Expand to year-round access to volunteer/intern programs for core support; Expand access to CRC's Prevention and Education Programs.

Goal 3 Strategies: Expand utilization of existing food and nutrition programs; Increase access to nutritional information and food education resources; Increase access to healthy recipes and cooking classes to improve nutritional security; Expand facilities to provide access to bulk commodity storage; Maintain Nutrition Consult Program to provide resources and recommendations to clients.

Goal 1: CRC has 3 full-time Case Managers, an Intake Specialist, a Program specialist, and a Program Manager in our Social Services department that are working to complete these goals. We also have a Data Entry and Monitoring Specialist who is active in the implementation of the ETO database.

Goal 2: The DV program is staffed with a Program Manager, Case Managers, an Education and Prevention Coordinator and an Education and Prevention Specialist.

Goal 3: In addition to the staffing listed above under Goal 1, we have partnerships with several different food organizations, including Feeding San Diego. CRC also enjoys a huge volunteer base for food programs, which make it possible to expand our programs beyond our employed staff.

Goal 1: Case Managers have been successful in completing self-sufficiency plans with clients and have been tracking clients' progress consistently in the database. CRC has also expanded and updated its list of resources for program participants. In Fiscal Year 2017-2018, CRC held 2,059 case management sessions, providing financial and career resources.

Goal 2: We have been successful in expanding the DV Prevention and Education program by offering a 40-hour DV training and certification class and a Safe Dating and Healthy Relationship education program in local high schools. In Fiscal Year 2017-2018, more than 60 presentations were made to 2,270 adults and youth. During the same fiscal year, CRC answered 1,656 calls on our domestic violence hotline and helped 172 people find safety in our shelter, housing and counseling programs.

Goal 3: CRC is continually expanding our Food & Nutrition Program. We are a Gold-Certified Pantry through our partner, Leah's Pantry. We have a Nutrition Consultation Program with the support of a volunteer. In Fiscal Year 2017-2018, 13,880 visits were made to our Food & Nutrition Center, where over 497,000 pounds of nutritious food was distributed. In addition, via the Holiday Baskets program, in 2018 over 1,500 households received food, warm clothing and a few gifts to brighten the holidays.
