Mission 25's capacity to accomplish the strategic plan approved by the board of directors is great and has been proven to be successful. We have a highly engaged and functional board of directors who ensure the strategic plan is the North Star.

We have a highly competent and professional staff team and leadership team to ensure goals are met.

Lastly, we have a high capacity of building collaborative partnerships to ensure strategic priorities are met.

We partnered with a community mental health provided to secure a contracted therapist to meet Mission 25 client mental health needs. Clients served have access to mental, behavioral and physical health care providers, as well as access to providers for recovery and/or recovery coaches.

We remodeled a building that was gifted to us in 2018 and we opened up the first and only Recovery Engagement Center in our community/county in March 2023. We provide access to recovery resources, groups, support and recovery coaches for free. We currently have 5 certified addiction recovery coaches on staff. Between March - December 2023, there were just over 1,600 recovery engagements that took place at the REC.

We continue to work on disrupting detrimental cycles among those served throughout all Mission 25 programs. Mission 25 staff receives ongoing training for trauma-informed care / principles, as well as training around poverty, mental health and substance use disorders.

Expand Shelter and Housing services. Mission 25 was approved to build a NEW facility for Shelter Services which will be 3x the size of the current facility, as well as allow us to add bed capacity and new service lines. The new shelter broke ground in June 2024 and is slated to be completed by April 2025. Furthermore, Mission 25 purchased 3 housing properties in July 2021 which allows for individuals to transition from shelter services into supportive housing for up to 2 years.

Providing ongoing case management/support to foster long-term success. We have strengthened the capacity to provide wrap around case management supports, as well as financial case management, child case management and a navigator who will ensure goals are accomplished.

We increase financial literacy through financial classes and one-on-one financial case management. In 2023, there was a collective amount of individual client debt just over $34,000 that was paid off by the clients themselves; as well as over $40,000 was saved by the clients for their personal savings accounts and housing stipends.

The Mission 25 staff and board of directors works collaboratively to ensure we are an organization that can support it's mission. We do this through leadership strategies and financial oversight and a robust vision for the future.

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.
