Background Statement

Ascentria Care Alliance (Ascentria), formerly Lutheran Social Services, has been serving people in need for over 140 years regardless of background or religious belief. The first program, an orphanage, was established in 1872 when a faithful Lutheran brewer named Gottlieb Burkhardt took four orphans under his wing and created the Martin Luther Orphans’ Home at Brook Farm in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. This orphanage evolved into the agency’s first adoption program, which continues as a program of Ascentria today.

Today, 1,400 Ascentria employees serve nearly 5,000 people each day in 60+ human service programs throughout New England. At Ascentria, we are called to strengthen communities by empowering people to respond to life’s challenges. Our community-based programs serve children, youth, and families through foster care, adoption, family support, teen parent services, and group care; adults with developmental disabilities through residential and case management programs; refugees through resettlement, education, and vocational support; and older adults through in-home care, assisted living and skilled care.
 
Ascentria continues a tradition of innovation and responsiveness. For example:
 
-Ascentria launched services for refugees in the wake of World War II and continues today to serve people who are fleeing persecution and war.
-In 1996, Ascentria founded Good News Garage, the first program in the country to utilize donated cars and provide them to low income individuals and families, helping them move from welfare to work.
-Ascentria launched the Language Bank in 2001, a social enterprise that offers expert, face-to-face language interpretation services to professionals and the people they serve who have limited English proficiency.
-In 2014, Ascentria began developing an innovative, client-centered care model to help individuals and families move forward and thrive – physically, intellectually, socially, spiritually, and economically. This new holistic model is being piloted at our new client center in Worcester.
 
Ascentria is a member of Lutheran Services in America (LSA), the national umbrella network of Lutheran social ministries that comprise one of the nation's largest charities.
 
Ascentria is accredited through the Council on Accreditation. Accreditation is designed to recognize excellence in the delivery of human services to identify providers meeting the highest level of standards and quality improvement.

Examples of Program Success 

When Grace* first came to Good News Garage (GNG), she was just beginning to rebuild her life. She had lost everything in an apartment fire in New York, and had moved to Vermont to find a safer environment to raise her two boys. Through the state's Reach UP program, she was able to find housing and employment. She then learned she was eligible for GNG's Wheels to Work - a program that awards vehicles to low-income families to help improve their financial stability. She was a perfect candidate and a week later, she had a car - she was excited and grateful.

Today, Grace and her family are thriving. She's working at Kohl's and her two boys are on the honor roll in school. And, having reliable transportation has expanded Grace's horizons. She's currently in training to receive her commercial driver's license and can't wait to pursue this lifelong dream.

Examples of Program Success 
(14-year-old girl) “I have been in foster homes almost my whole life. I never liked being a foster kid until I came here. The feelings I have of being a foster kid is that I feel special. My foster mom is like a friend. We do a lot of fun things like movies and we dance together even if she is old (47). We go out to eat and learn good manners. I have nice new clean clothes that other kids don’t. My foster mom is the best mom I never had. I hope I can stay with my foster family forever.”

(12-year-old boy) “I’ve been in many foster homes, residentials, and hospitals. I have two fantastic foster parents that take care of me and love me to the bottom of their hearts. They buy us toys and foods most foster kids don’t get. The best thing is they let us have TV’s and not just a bed and a bureau. We have closets to put our nice new clothes in. My clothes have only my name on them.”

Robert had lived in a refugee camp in Africa for seven years. When he arrived in Worcester, all of his personal belongings fit in one small carry-on suitcase. He also carried a woven mat to serve as a bed. With the support of Ascentria and the generosity of donors, he was given a comfortable bed with clean, warm bedding and all of the household items needed to finally feel at home. While our staff support helped him with a place to live, English classes, and employment, our donors and volunteers helped him feel safe and at home!

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?
