IATT Project

The IATT Project is a collaborative partnership between the Isaiah 117 Project, Foster Care In The U.S., Junior League of Evansville, and Old National Bank. The project, which will serve young people in the five-county area of Vanderburgh, Warrick, Posey, Gibson and Spencer, focuses on empowering and educating homeless, at-risk and disadvantaged young people to assist them in obtaining the necessary job skills, connections, knowledge, education and civic leadership they need to be successful now and in the future.

At-risk young people are critically more disadvantaged than their counterparts. Most do not have access to the tools of success. Issues like food insecurity, illiteracy, broken homes, incarcerated parents, homelessness, abuse, racism, discrimination based solely on the color of their skin or orientation and much more, are all daily fights. These issues have plagued those in poverty for decades, and they continue to keep some of the brightest and best from achieving success

Population(s) Served

Social and economic status
Men and boys

The IATT House is Permanent Supportive Housing for homeless, transitional foster care, and at-risk young adults, age 18-24. The home, like the IATT Project it is named for, focuses on five, key, foundational areas of need and success: Development, Education, Preparadness, Civic Leadership and Empowerment. Program participants can live in the home for a 1-3 year time period. In that time, the home and program works with participants toward the overall goal of self-sufficiency.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 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.

Ms. Jessica L Angelique

I entered Foster care as an infant, and remained there until I aged-out into homelessness at the age of 16. I lived in fifteen different foster homes, group homes and one Orphanage. I attended seventeen different schools and went through a revolving door of 28-Social Workers, none of who knew much about foster care, the signs of severe physical abuse, sexual abuse or psychological trauma. I created Foster Care In The U.S. to address the needs of homeless foster care, and at-risk youth and young adults.

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • 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 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 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.
