What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

A Community of Blessings Childcare Center

We are a 24-hour childcare center in Harrisburg, PA. We support single parents, grandparents, and low to moderate-income families. Our center was born to help school-choice families have extended hours of quality childcare, allowing them to accept hours with more money. Parents who can care for their essential needs are more susceptible to being more involved in their children's education. Our services include care for children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. We offer farm-to-table meals, a STEM curriculum, drop-in care, on-site RN, transportation, headstart, pre-k, two unique payment options for parents, and more. We believe that children can learn early, allowing them a better start in education.

Population(s) Served

People of Latin American descent

Last updated: 10/30/2023

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

Data
  • 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 use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • 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.
