Charting impact

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

The goal of The Emergency Assistance Center is to provide emergency food assistance to all low-income families in our service area who need help. We aim to provide nutrient dense foods and a balanced menu by providing fresh fruits and vegetables, diary items, frozen poultry or beef, and breads, along with personal hygiene and diapers. In addition, we also offer access to additional onsite resources for Medicaid and SNAP assistance, and mental health services.

We are 100% community-funded through monetary donations, as well as food and hygiene donations by local individuals, business, schools, churches, and organizations. We work hard to maintain strong relationships with those who support us.

We accept the help of anyone who wants to volunteer to help maintain operations at the Center and work with clients.

The Emergency Assistance Center sustains relationships with our donors and the community through personal contact, our Facebook page @teacenter, and our website www.teacenter.org.

We currently have 50 regular volunteers who give their time every week to support the operations of the Center.

Goal 1: By increasing funding, we will be better able to serve our current clients and will continue to look at expanding our services and areas. We have recently partnered with Ohio Department of Job & Family Services , Veterans Affairs, and with an organization for mental health services, so that anyone in the area can meet with representatives at our location.
Goal 2: By having a well defined policy, our stakeholders have a clear message on why and how we are obtaining our long term goals.
Goal 3: We believe that The Emergency Assistance Center will continue to grow, not only by volunteers and donors but by clients. We believe that it will continually positive identity within the communities in which we serve.
Goal 4: Our Fundraising committee continues to work on goals of fundraising and event in which this will occur. They report to our Board of Directors.
Goal 5: We believe that our Social Media presence will continue and will look at ways to expand and use other forms of social media to talk about not only the Emergency Assistance Center but to talk about food insecurity in our community.
Goal 6: We are looking to retain and to continually train our board members.

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.

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.
