Mission

Through our Give Rides program, we serve other nonprofits and organizations who empower single moms who are survivors of addiction, domestic abuse, exploitation, homelessness and trauma by providing safe and reliable transportation solutions. The women we serve have all had traumatic circumstances impact their lives that created significant barriers to their ability to live independently, which impacts their children. Our collaborative approach ensures our single moms/survivors have the support they need on every level to empower them to make lasting changes in their lives and the lives of their families. Our goal is to provide safe, reliable transportation solutions to single moms with minor children on their journey to becoming independent.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our clients are single moms who are survivors of addiction, domestic abuse, exploitation, homelessness and trauma. They have decided to pursue a new life for themselves and their children by committing to a program provided by our nonprofit partner organizations (NPOs). However, they lack reliable transportation. This includes having unreliable transportation, no access to public transportation, cannot afford transportation, etc. With this in mind, we strategically partner with local NPOs providing financial assistance, recovery programs, emergency and/or transitional housing, etc. to address the transportation needs of the single moms in their programs. Our intent is to provide critical access to basic necessities, medical treatment (physical and mental), employment, and other crucial support services participants need to help them take care of their families and obtain independence.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

According to Single Parent Success Foundation, 37% of single mom-led families nationwide live in poverty. According to the last census, Georgia has nearly 4 Million households with 27.8% led by single moms. Putting those statistics together, over 400,000 households in Georgia are being led by single moms struggling to make ends meet. Everyday, they must figure out which needs they can address based on their limited income and transportation situation. They lack both the resources and time required to do everything necessary to make lasting progress. As a result, they enter a loop of impossible trade offs that keep them in poverty. We are one of few nonprofits in metro Atlanta that focus on resolving transportation challenges. Through strategic partnerships with 60+ nonprofits, Give Rides increases access to trauma, medical, financial, and housing needs, giving single mothers and their children the necessary tools to build or rebuild a healthy life for their families.

Give Rides

Through Give Rides, Heirborn Servants is one of few nonprofits that focus on providing reliable transportation in Metro Atlanta. We create a positive impact by partnering with local nonprofits (NPO’s) to provide single moms with key transportation that enables them to get back on their feet and thrive in their communities. Through strategic partnerships, we offer Car Gifting & Rideshare Funding. The programs run by our NPO partners focus on recovery, restoration and/or economic stability, and we come alongside these organizations to remove transportation barriers. Access to reliable transportation provides the opportunity for meaningful employment, pursuing higher education, career certifications, regular healthcare management, and other critical services that are necessary to attain and sustain self-sufficiency. We exist to change families trajectories by ensuring vulnerable woman receive the dignity and open doors she needs thrive without the limitations of poor transportation.

Charting impact

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

The programs run by our nonprofit partners focus on recovery, restoration and/or economic stability. We come alongside our partners to help remove the transportation barrier, so more single mom led families have an opportunity to reach self sufficiency. Give Rides fills a void that is often overlooked, yet necessary, to help end or prevent cycles of homelessness.

In 2022, we collaborated with Community Consulting Teams - Atlanta (CCT) to develop a formal 3 year strategy. The 3 year strategic plan focuses on expanding and enhancing organizational development, succession planning, consistent fundraising/resource mobilization and effective partnerships to better serve our target beneficiaries, single mom led families. The plan includes increasing the number of staff and volunteers, developing the board of directors, expanding our reach to additional counties in Georgia, and establishing partnerships with more local dealerships and repair facilities to create a secure transportation ecosystem. We anticipate strengthening this ecosystem will lower administrative costs as it improves efficiency/effectiveness and creates a natural pipeline that increases vehicle donations, which both lowers administrative costs (for vehicles eligible to be gifted) and generates a consistent revenue stream (for vehicles ineligible to be gifted).

In 2023, our goal is to serve 375-400 women by gifting 24-30 cars and funding 4,000 - 5,000 Lyft rides. Additionally, we intend to add 10-15 new nonprofit partners to increase access to our service for more single moms in Metro Atlanta, add 1-2 new auto partnerships, add 2 new board members, complete a new development strategy, and to hire a full time resource Client Success Advocate in accordance with our strategic plan.

Overall, our goal is to increase sustainability and provide more comprehensive and impactful services to single mothers, helping them achieve self-sufficiency and break the cycle of poverty. Our 10 year goal is to positively impact the lives of 10,000 women and children.

We believe our unique transportation services deliver an innovative approach to improving the lives of disadvantaged moms by removing a critical barrier which is often ignored. The Heirborn team believes that mothers, when given the right tools and opportunities, can improve the state of their children.

To measure success, we utilize the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a holistic business model with a complete set of simple business tools to produce the desired results. We use EOS and Vision Tracking Organizer (VTO) architecture to plan, stay on task, define goals/milestones, and address challenges/opportunities on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis. We also have an EOS Integrator on the team to ensure proper implementation of the model. He facilitates leadership meetings and holds the team accountable to goals and P&L results.

We leverage the EOS structure to ensure we are always working on the right problems at the right time with our current resources. This operating model has allowed us to continue growing each year while maintaining a largely part time staff, while balancing increasing demand and costs. It has also helped us add natural revenue components to our design which can account for 25%+ of our program budget as we grow for sustainability (service fees, reimbursements and vehicle donations).

A number of nonprofits in metro Atlanta provide resources supporting financial empowerment and trauma management. Nonetheless, there is still a specific need of the under-served communities that is still left widely ignored, which is equitable access to reliable transportation. In Metro Atlanta, there are few nonprofits, if any, that focus on transportation addressing transportation challenges. In fact, more than 60% of our current partners reported that they did not have any transportation budget prior to our partnership.

Our business model is collaborative and provides a critical support service that improves stability and sustainability for single moms recovering from trauma who are routinely in crisis and/or at risk of homelessness. We are strategically partnered with 60+ local nonprofits providing financial assistance, emergency and/or transitional housing (among other critical services such as employment, medical, etc.) to address the transportation needs of the single moms in their programs. These partners help us give our beneficiaries holistic services that will improve their lives and families.

Each of our nonprofit partners has a signed Memorandum of Understanding which allows them to refer eligible car gifting applicants, and 30+ of the above referenced agencies also participate in Rideshare Funding, where they reimburse us for 25% of spend within their budget.

Beyond our nonprofit partnerships (how we serve our clients), in order to provide that service, we rely on strong transportation partnerships as well that help us pride our services efficiently and consistently (dealers, mechanics, Lyft, etc.).

Since 2018, we have served 910 women, impacting 1,587 kids, by gifting 104 cars, and funding 7,882 Lyft Rides (thru 5/31/2023). We administer surveys to our Car Gifting recipients and our Rideshare Funding partners to measure the impact of our services. Last year, Rideshare Funding partners reported the following usage of rides:
-28% to find/keep employment, 28% to access medical care, 26% to help complete a program, 5% for supervised visitation with children in foster care, and 13% to other places that matter.

Below, please find some of the results of our Car Gifting survey administered to past car recipients in May 2022 (61% response rate). Past recipients indicated that receiving the car:
-95% - helped “substantially improve” their overall situation
-84% - helped them get more involved in their community
-73% - significantly helped them get a promotion or a better job
-76% - significantly improved the stability of their housing situation
-72% - significantly improved their ability to complete the requirements of the referring nonprofit partner's program
-70% - improved access to affordable medical care
42% - helped them no longer receive any outside financial assistance

Additionally, as of 5/31/2023, we have added 9 new nonprofit partners this year, added a new major auto dealership partner, added another board member, and hired a full time Client success Advocate in alignment with our strategic plan.

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.
