Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of Gifts of Hope Unlimited (GOHU) is to raise resources for those impacted by relationship violence. GOHU provides timely financial assistance and basic home resources to individuals and their families who aspire to obtain independence and self-empowerment, while striving to rebuild for their future.

Background Statement

Gifts of Hope Unlimited was first conceptualized in 2012 to provide financial assistance to be used for legal advocacy. A pilot program was created to re-sell donated merchandise to fund legal advocacy run by the Domestic Violence Services Network (DVSN). Although the fundraiser was successful and enabled pro bono services, funds depleted quickly while servicing a few because legal advocacy costs were high. As a result, the founding team determined that the program would be able to assist more people if funds were directed towards everyday needs rather than just for funding legal needs.
 
Gifts of Hope Unlimited Inc. was successfully relaunched as a 501c3 in October of 2016 with the goal to collaborate with town social workers and domestic violence service provider agencies. GOHU was founded by individuals and volunteer advocates, that worked for similar programs and were familiar with not only the statistics but also saw these needs first-hand. Therefore, the goals of GOHU have evolved to provide timely access to short-term financial assistance and timely access to resources that can make a significant difference in the lives of individuals and their families as they strive to rebuild their lives.  The programs continue through individual donations and community-sponsored grants.
 
Since the relaunch in 2016, the major source of GOHU's funds has been through individual donations, more than $20,000 since initiation. The second source of GOHU's funds comes from grants and ongoing fundraising activities.  

Impact Statement

GOHU assists individuals and families affected by relationship violence either directly or through partnership (i.e. collaboration with the local social workers and local domestic violence service providers). Supporting individuals and families through these programs is leading to a longer-term impact of creating stronger and healthier communities.
 
Some key initiatives that GOHU focused on during 2018 to serve residents in the Metrowest Boston: 1) Educational Assistance: Provision of financial support to participate in educational programs such as vocational skills training, occupational programs, etc. For example, GOHU partnered with Voices Against Violence which serves 32 individuals living in their 6-bedroom shelter and the Metrowest community. 83% are females, 9% younger than 25, 51% have a disability, 23% speak English as a second language and 54% are minorities. Many adults struggle to join the workforce or keep their current jobs often time due to the increased stress of becoming a single parent after leaving an abusive relationship. 2) Financial Support: As some of these individuals and families struggle to rebuild their lives, the situation is often exacerbated by the inability to financially support routine needs. To date, GOHU has provided 75 individuals with over 500 units of household goods, and approximately $8000 in cash and gift cards. 3) Drop-off Center Development: GOHU also actively supports impacted individuals as they move into their new homes with basic items to furnish their homes. GOHU has partnered local organizations like the Second Step which serves 300 survivors of relationship violence. At any given time, 58 individuals are served through their shelter program, 250 survivors are served through their community outreach program and 500 child survivors are served. 
 
 


Needs Statement

In 2017, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducted a census of services in which 48 out of 48 (100%) domestic violence programs in Massachusetts participated. Results of this survey showed that there were 298 Unmet Requests for Services in One Day, of which 64% (190) were for Housing. These requests for services—including emergency shelter, housing, transportation, childcare, legal representation, and more—could not be provided because programs lacked the resources or means to meet victims’ needs.  
 
The need for assistance continues to be paramount in helping victims of domestic violence reclaim their lives due to little access to funding. Re-establishing new homes can be a costly, long-term struggle. People are often paralyzed by the overwhelming complexity and fear of having to make decisions, resulting in despair, PTSD and sometimes homelessness. The focus of GOHU’s program is unique because our activities result in the creation of channels for access to household goods and clothing as well as financial support. As a result, our most pressing needs are funds to: 1) purchase basic necessities, 2) allocate for payments that impact livelihood, 3) cover operational cost of moving donations, 3) implement inventory management system, and 5) invest in creating awareness.


CEO Statement



Board Chair Statement

In 2012 volunteer advocates from Domestic Violence Services Network came together to found an organization that could continue to help families affected by relationship violence after their initial contact with police and service providers. We realized that women often had no legal representation. Our initial thought was to raise funds to help with this crucial piece. As we worked on raising funds, we were not able to raise enough money for our mission. Instead we realized that people enjoyed donating all the things that families transitioning from a shelter to an apartment would need to start a new home in the Metrowest area, including furniture, household goods, and clothing. In October 2016, the Gifts of Hope Unlimited (GOHU) adopted a new more sustainable model – collaborating with town social workers and domestic violence services provider agencies. Our client referrals come through these agencies. In August of 2016 we became a 501c3, non-profit organization with the mission to provide household goods and financial assistance to families affected by relationship violence. Our Lady of Fatima in Sudbury gave
us a $5000 grant to help prevent homelessness with just in time donations. In record time, often within days of receiving a request to help, we could find furniture and items needed to set up a new home. Our model gives our clients hope, a sense of security, confidence and ability to do the work necessary for day to day living, retain a job, and more importantly a sense of community. To date we have assisted more than 50 families and received donations from local faith- based organizations, the local League of Women Voters, the Sudbury Historical Society, and the Sudbury Garden Club as well as from friends and neighbors. In July of 2018 we received a grant of $11, 900 to rent a warehouse and to furnish paper goods and cleaning supplies for the agencies we work with. We moved into our new 1600 square foot warehouse in Acton in July of 2018. In September the real estate owner of the warehouse decided to let us use the space rent free, leaving us with funds to help with expenses of moving furniture for our clients and keeping the warehouse stocked. We continue to from partnerships with community and faith- based organizations and area businesses. We have seen the difference our work makes and the lives we have touched simply by delivering basic things needed for a home. Every family deserves the right to feel secure and comfortable as they settle in to become cherished residents of our communities. With the help of community and friends we are well on our way to accomplishing our mission to provide the ‘Gifts Of Hope Unlimited’ to those affected by domestic abuse.

Programs

Financial Access Program

Survivors impacted by relationship violence struggle to maintain a level of normalcy for themselves and their dependents especially as the financial means to survive in a single-provider household are enhanced. This program provided the necessary monetary funds to help the victims fund for daily lifestyle needs (i.e. buying diapers, vitamins, special foods, counselling for themselves or their family) or for additional expenses incurred because of the situation (i.e. legal fees).

 

 

Budget  --
Category  Human Services, General/Other
Population Served At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

GOHU claims success when, as a result of outreach, volunteer resources, local social service departments better understand

- how our partnership with social workers (Department of Health) can benefit by meeting the financial assistance needs of victims of domestic violence

- need for partnership with faith-based organizations can provide temporary financial funding in a collaborated effort towards prevention of homelessness

- resources required for raising monetary funds are available

- how to partner with other local town organization to support those in need with financial assistance

Program Long-Term Success 

GOHU will have achieved long-term success when:

- victims of domestic violence feel have achieved economic independence and/or are empowered to take steps necessary to plan towards economic independence (i.e. participating in training or adult education programs)

- victims of domestic violence give back to society through volunteer activities

- consistent/long-standing donors to continue to provide for victims in need

Program Success Monitored By 
GOHU’s program success has been monitored by the Board of Directors since 2012. In 2018, GOHU also appointed an Advisory Board comprised of local Sudbury leaders to assist in providing guidance during GOHU’s current and anticipated growth in the community it serves.
Examples of Program Success 
GOHU has been consistently able raise monetary funds from individual contributors since 2012 and through fund-raising programs since 2017. These initiatives have enabled GOHU with the ability to provide necessary funding for financial needs of impacted individuals through this program. GOHU has also successfully expanded efforts by partnering with local community-based organizations, resulting in receipt of grants (such as Lady of Fatima, a faith-based organization). In addition, GOHU has received storage space which has provided the necessary operational budget required for GOHU to dedicate its financial resources towards helping those in need.

Product Access Program

Survivors impacted by relationship violence feel as though they have been left stranded on an island of their own. Many institutions offer contacts that can help the survivor meet daily needs. Unfortunately, this results in the survivors spending time to call multiple helplines for each of their needs. This program allows GOHU to work with the local social worker to identify needs that can be fulfilled (i.e. requiring beds, small appliances etc.) so that the survivors have one less thing to worry about and therefore just a little bit more time to focus on rebuilding their lives.

Budget  --
Category  Human Services, General/Other
Population Served At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

GOHU claims success when, because of outreach, volunteer resources, donators and local social service departments in the serviced region better understand:

· how our partnership enables a channel of access for resources required for everyday needs for victims of domestic violence

· how an organized effort between GOHU and the community can fulfill the needs of survivors (by providing necessities for day to day living) transitioning from a shelter to an empty residence as they restart their lives

· the need to sustain the current volunteer resource base

· the impact GOHU makes partnering with local town organizations to support the community’s need in an area that is less commonly discussed

Program Long-Term Success 

GOHU will have achieved long-term success when:

· a furniture bank is created to store donated (including large pieces of furniture) goods, provide access to local service organizations so that resources are available in emergency (short timeline for turnaround) situations, and monitor the contained inventory effectively and efficiently

· local social workers from neighboring towns initiate ways in which GOHU can partner to help them provide the necessary resources for victims of domestic violence

· the community understands the impact it can make by donating household goods to GOHU and therefore enables the development of a consistent/long-standing donator pool

· consistent and long-term volunteers (made up of individuals and organizations) are available to assist in acting on the needs of the organization (i.e. picking up donated goods, providing for transportation needs, etc.)

Program Success Monitored By 

GOHU’s program success has been monitored by the Board of Directors since 2012. In 2018, GOHU also appointed an Advisory Board comprised of local Sudbury leaders to assist in providing guidance during GOHU’s current and anticipated growth in the community it serves.

Examples of Program Success  GOHU has been maintaining a “just in time” inventory of furniture and household goods through various locations. Recently GOHU secured a small storage location in a public space through efforts with a local organization. This new storage has provided GOHU the ability to provide its local Department of Health partners with better round-the-clock access for accessing product needed to set up a new location for survivors.

Individuals with trucks and vans within the community have come forward to assist in picking up and delivering large pieces of furniture. This has allowed for GOHU to operate on the bare minimum and dedicate its financial donations towards the survivors.

GOHU has built its board capacity by identifying the strategic needs of the organization and aligning those with recruitment efforts (i.e. professional marketing, development and fundraising team). In addition, GOHU has expanded partnership efforts with local community based organizations to drive awareness of the GOHU resources and services.

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?

Gift of Hope Unlimited aims to provide financial and product assistance for domestic violence survivors in the Metrowest Boston area by providing access to home goods and financial needs. With the growing rate of victims becoming homeless or restarting their lives but limited funds, GOHU provides a much-needed resource in communities that can help survivors of relationship violence reestablish a new normalcy with the hopes that the families have an easier path to feeling safer and empowered.

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

In order to accomplish the goals, GOHU has developed Financial Access Programs and Product Access Programs. The Financial Access Program helps fulfill monetary funds to fund small daily needs or for expenses incurred from the situation of being in relationship violence. The Product Access Program provides household goods and other needs such as clothing that support survivors by making it easier for them to restart their lives.

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

The volunteers at GOHU continue to plan and execute fundraising programs to solicit monetary funds and household good that can help bring in the necessary donations to help survivors of relationship violence. The organization continues to make connections with local town social workers and community organizations (such as local faith-based organizations, VOICES, etc.) to help ensure that survivor needs are identified and supported as quickly as possible.

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

We will know that we are making progress when we see an increase in the number of individual/families we are helping per month. This will require for close interactions with organizations that are aware of a relationship violence survivor needs. We can meet the needs of an individual/family with the resources that are already part of our inventory or by soliciting through our growing network of donors. Lastly, increasing volunteerism as well developing a system (which includes storage space) to help manage the inventory of donated goods will help set the organization up for successful expansion.

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

We are making progress towards our goals but there is quite a bit to accomplish still given the increasing needs in society. We have been able to secure healthy monetary donations, enough donations of household goods, are increasing our volunteer base and have increased and/or deepened relationships with other organizations in the community. We need to become more systematic about our operations (for efficient solicitation and use of donated resources and volunteers), and can deepen relationships with organization and social workers in many other cities in the Metrowest Boston area. Your help in our efforts to continue to develop the organization would be highly supportive.
