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.

Executive Director

Mrs. Deyso Crespo

Each day KCM renews our commitment to strengthening families by building caring relationships. Through the generosity of our donors and supporters; our staff, volunteers, and Board members everyone works hard to meet our community’s needs and bring hope to the thousands of residents we serve. Looking over this past year, KCM is proud to have played a role in our clients’ accomplishments and personal successes. The letters of appreciation, the testimonials of clients and members of the community, and our staff remind us of the difference we can make. For one single mother, our services ensured that she would receive financial assistance to pay her utilities and rent, even when other agencies turned her away. Our counseling enabled one woman to face her fears and gave her the confidence she needed to leave an abusive relationship thousands found hope when they thought there was none. In order to meet the demand for services in the West Houston/Katy area, KCM is part of a Capacity Building Initiative through the Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries. The Katy community is fundamentally changing – the scope of which is unique in the diversity and pervasiveness of the challenge. The Capacity Building Initiative is KCM’s response. KCM plans to grow in terms of (1) scale, (2) consistency of funding, (3) diversity of programming, and (4) next-generation leadership expertise to manage and sustain growth going forward. These objectives will act as benchmarks toward the progression of the Initiative’s goal. By growing rapidly and by having this growth be a deliberate and tactical reflection of community needs and programmatic solutions, KCM will better be able to create a stronger community tomorrow by helping individuals and families meet the challenges they face today.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 05/16/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • 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 analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • 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 disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • 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 have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • 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.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
