Our programs

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

Welcome Program

We connect volunteer teams with refugee and immigrant households to accompany newcomers for their first year in the United States. As part of this program, we collectively go on three community outings to experience culture and the wonderful things that St. Joseph County, Indiana has to offer. In addition, we advocate when there are structural barriers preventing newcomers from being fully integrated into the community, and we offer educational support through ESL tutoring and themed workshops.

Charting impact

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

We are aiming to welcome newcomers to our community in a way that keeps them from being isolated. This includes relationships, advocacy, and education. We want each newcomer to feel that they belong in our community and that they are able to thrive.

Our strategy is to match newcomers with local volunteers, who will act as community guides and friends. We also address structural issues and barriers that prevent newcomers from fully integrating into the community, such as discrepancies in healthcare or language accessibility. Finally we provide cultural education to newcomers and anti-racism education to volunteers to ensure safety and equity. We also provide education in language proficiency, workforce skills, financial literacy, health, and more.

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.
