Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide a Christ-centered ministry of presence and support to inmates, return citizens and area law enforcement.

Pre-release and post-release programming for inmates/return citizens; training needs for Jail Chaplains staff and volunteers; and building community awareness and relationships with Cass County Sheriff's Office, North Dakota Parole & Probation, Southeast Human Services, treatment (addiction, mental health) providers, churches and community partners.

Our capabilities to meet our goals will be achieved through the work of the Jail Chaplains staff along with volunteers for our organization.

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.
