What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The 2019-2021 Strategic Plan was centered on organizational growth: investing in our people, growing our capacity to serve, leveraging resources, strengthening financial health, and enhancing community engagement. While progress was made on all of these priorities, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in significant disruptions to both our operations and also to our clients. HumanKind worked to adapt its service delivery and personnel management to meet the new reality, emerging stronger and more nimble thanks to enhanced community outreach and the growth of digital assets and resources. In 2022-2024, we are working to bolster our internal processes and advance our community presence while promoting innovation and responsible growth.

Our programs

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

Early Head Start

HumanKind's Early Head Start provides support for parents and free, full-time child care for infants and toddlers in Bedford and Lynchburg. This program provides tools and resources to families of children ages 0-3 at home and in our centers so that they can build a strong foundation for life.

Population(s) Served
Parents
Infants and toddlers
Children

Financial Empowerment programming is organized through Economic Resource Centers (ERCs) in Richmond, Lynchburg, and Roanoke, which are hubs for helping individuals and families overcome financial challenges and build wealth. Educational workshops, coaching, financial navigation, loan assistance, eviction prevention programs, and advocacy with financial institutions enable clients to reduce debt and move toward long-term stability. Under the ERC, HumanKind has operated the highly successful Ways to Work program since 1999, connecting low- to moderate-income individuals with reliable and affordable transportation as a fundamental step toward economic self-sufficiency. Ways to Work provides vehicle loans and financial literacy education for working individuals with challenging credit histories who are often ineligible for financial services, including through traditional CDFIs. The program has provided over 2,500 Virginia residents with more than $12M in vehicle loans since its inception.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Adults

Since 1903, we have provided safe and loving homes for those in need. Today, our Adult Services department provides sponsored homes for adults with intellectual disabilities across Virginia. These safe, caring, and supportive environments help our residents lead full and meaningful lives while developing hope for the future.
Our Adult Sponsored Homes program places clients in the home of a loving family that provides individualized support and the opportunity to experience life in a community setting rather than in a state institution or group home.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities
Adults

HumanKind's foster care program provides around-the-clock support, ongoing training for foster parents, and a network of professionals to assist with the daily needs of children in foster care. Providing a stable foundation of support, we create a place for healing and growth for children.

Healthy Families is a free and voluntary home-visiting service that supports new parents prenatally through the childs fifth birthday by focusing on positive parent-child interactions and providing education related to healthy development and family functioning.

Darkness to Light, an interactive workshop, includes videos, discussions, and take-home workbooks on strategies to respond to and prevent child sexual abuse.

Parent Child Nurturing Classes bring together the whole family to address areas of communication, expectations, and family roles.

Life Skills for Incarcerated Women supports skill-building and offers case management as needed.

Family Partner Meetings involve birth families, community members, resource families, service providers, and agency staff in placement decisions to ensure a network of support for the child and the adults who care for them.

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.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • 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 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.
