Charting impact

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

Our vision and goals for the next five yes include the following are services that Power Passion Purpose Inc will provide:

Phased out transitional & independent living housing program.
- A three phase program that will lead to home ownership or permanent community living.
Resource center.
- Where we will service our participants from Intake to employment/entrepreneurship
24-hour Safety Net Services.
- Where we have our crisis/helpline that will provide wraparound care guidance and support.
Level-Up Program.
- Leadership Development for participants who have a desire to grow within their corporate workplace or branch off and become an entrepreneur. We encourage multiple streams of income to assist with self-sufficiency.
A resource for the local community by offering office space, yoga/meditation space, salon, meeting rooms, event space, collaboration opportunities.

Our greatest strategy to fulfill this would be our dedication to remain missioned aligned and focused. Firstly, we intentionally host the programs with a maximum number of 15 participants therefore, ensuring comprehensive attention to the women in the program allowing us the ability to track the womans individual progress through their process. Pre- and post-program surveys will assess the participants retention and implementation of tools. Additionally, feedback forms will be distributed to gauge overall satisfaction, perceived value, and room for improvement. These will offer an opportunity for evaluation of success in achieving the program objectives and positively impacting the community.

Our next strategy as an organization is to continue building our capacity within the organization, remaining people-centered trauma-informed, and by providing healthy strong sustainable collaborations and partnerships. We see capacity strengthening aligning with our future endeavors by preparing our organization to be in position to receive partnerships, funding opportunities, and contracts with the local, city, state, and government with sustainability for the life of our organization. This will allow us to become a valuable solution and resource for our staff, volunteers, participants, and community.

Our third strategy is to appropriately grow our operations, with adequate staff we can incorporate our departments that will manage the separate entities of the organization protecting the office environment for staff and participants well-being. Leadership, as we continue to add staff, we want to always be in a position to offer leadership development to staff, volunteers, and participants. Working strategically and efficiently will ensure that we fulfill our mission of stopping the multi-layered multi-generational cycle of trauma, violence, abuse and trafficking producing healthy, lives, homes, and communities.

We are a survivor led organizational we have a shared place of identity and social experience, excluding power as a dynamic to overcome nonprofit organization. We serve as essential first responders to community crises. Tisha utilizes her twenty plus years of meeting the needs of underserved women who have suffered various forms of trauma hindering their ability to become self-sufficient and productive member in their community. Decades of nonprofit and charity work in Pennsylvania, California and now Texas makes her an expert in running a nonprofit foundation. She fully understands the 501c3 requirements, grant requirements, and dedication it takes to make a charitable foundation sustainable. Tisha will also hire a Bookkeeper / Accountant to manage all donations and funding, payables, and payroll. She will also hire an Executive Assistant that will closely collaborate with her to manage the office, schedules, and day-to-day operations. She also has a Director of Fundraising to help with sponsor outreach and obtaining a steady stream of charitable gifts in place. The most recent addition to the Board of Directors, we filled the role of Director of Operations, and their position is to work closely with Tisha for the day-to-day operations, expansion, and allocation of program and operational funds. There will be independent contractors hired as well from counselors, mental health professionals, social workers, security, and custodial staff to oversee their respective departments and teams. Lastly, she will have regular volunteers to assist with events and fundraising activities.

Our organization has currently accomplished securing funding to have a permanent office location to host, programs, outreach and events. We will be securing our office space within the next 90 days. Next is to begin our capital campaign to secure our facility where we will open phase II of our organization, the transitional housing program. The initial building will be for be for phase I, II of the programs once phases I, and II are operational we will be preparing for phase III which is the permanent shared community living.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Sep 01 - Aug 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
