Overview

Mission Statement

The St. Vincent DePaul Society at St. Charles Church, Woburn MA is part of the international Catholic lay organization offering assistance to individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. We assist people regardless of what, if any, religious affiliation they may have. We interact with other community resource organizations in efforts to help clients manage their way out of their current financial need.


Background Statement

St. Vincent dePaul at St. Charles has been operating for 25 years and some our original volunteers still serve on the board. We receive donations from church attendees and residents (mostly Woburn) and use those funds to provide clients with short-term assistance for food, rent, utilities, clothing, dental care, education, etc.

Impact Statement

During the past year we've moved our pantry operation to much larger and brighter quarters. We added new lighting, painted, installed new floor covering and new grocery shelving. We also purchased a new refrigerator - freezer and now provide refrigerated and frozen foods to our clients. We saved money by obtaining donated tables and chairs, lighting, and much of the labor. We are now increasing the operating hours to serve clients in the late afternoon and early evening.
 
We had the pleasure of providing donated food to 462 people during our last reporting year, made 125 home visits, and spent $21,181.00 assisting clients with rent, utilities, and clothing.
We added two new programs: Dental Care and Educational Assistance.
The Dental Care program provides select clients with much needed care and products for mouth hygiene. We pay for dental cleaning, fillings, and now stock dental care products in our pantry.
Educational assistance will allow low income families to keep their child in St. Charles School. We are currently assisting four families, one Brazilian, one African-American, one Jamaican, and one Caucasion. We will also provide clothing assistance for the children at the beginning of the next school year.

Needs Statement

Our needs are our clients needs, meaning that our most pressing need is donations of money. Money to assist clients with utility bills, rent, and clothing. And to support our Life Change initiatives providing assistance with child care, education, counseling, job training and employment. And we need donations of food, paper products, and soap/shampoo/toothpaste/brushes for our pantry.

Board Chair Statement

Our small group of volunteers has assisted families in need for over 25 years. Our ability to help is limited by the donations we receive. We spend 100% of those donations directly on assistance. We have many happy-ending stories that nourish our energy. A case this past year was a single mother of two girls. She had lost her job, needed immediate financial help, and needed to update her computer skills to qualify for a better job. We assisted her with food until she found part-time employment and while she attended computer classes. Her life is now much improved and her stress reduced.

Programs

Lifestyle Improvement

This program will expand our services from our current short-term relief efforts to offering long-term lifestyle improvement for cases deemed appropriate. We will add a variety of counseling services; finance management, education, job training, and job search. We would seek out professionals to assist with the various disciplines and, working with our volunteers, develop and implement client specific programs to help them achieve a better life. We would ultimately seek out businesses to assist in training and ultimately hiring the client. We will document each case, the steps taken, and the results.
Our first year would include the up-grading of our pantry and office space and the goal of implementing the new services with three clients. 
Budget  $25,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Family-Based Services
Population Served Families Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Unemployed, Underemployed, Dislocated
Program Short-Term Success  Our goal is to work with three families during the first 12 months and have completed, or have in process, the necessary steps to bring them to their individual lifestyle improvement goal.
Program Long-Term Success  The long-term success of this program will be families moving from dependency to independence, from non-productive to productive, resulting in a happier life (permanent lifestyle improvement)..
Program Success Monitored By  We will document the steps planned for each individual client/family, the progress to plan, and the final result. This monitoring will be done by our volunteers at St. Vincent dePaul while adjustments and improvements will be made as experience guides us.
Examples of Program Success  As detailed in the previous sections, we'll have a case-by-case reporting that will detail the success (and non-success) of each.

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.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
