Alison Lynn Bushman

Term:

Since July 2008

Profile:

Alison helped her twin daughters found Bake Me Home in 2008. She is originally from Silver Spring, MD and is a graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College. She has a degree in Psychology and Business and worked in vocational rehabilitation prior to staying home with her daughters. Alison also serves on the Duke Energy Children's Museum Advisory Board, is a member of the Junior League of Cincinnati, and is the Chair of the Alpha Xi Delta Beta Sigma Alumnae Advisory Board.

Leadership Statement:

As the President of Bake Me Home, and the mother of our Co-Founders, I am obviously very passionate about our organization.  What started out as just encouraging my daughters' idea has grown into a full-time volunteer position for me.  I am touched constantly by the opportunities we are given to impact the lives of other moms and kids who are struggling.  Other than raising my girls, it's the most rewarding job I have ever had.  I also feel blessed that Bake Me Home has given us a venue for others to come and volunteer, particularly young children.  I feel strongly that people of all ages can, and should, help others in their community.  I'm honored that we provide a place for kids as young as four to start learning that lesson.  The support that we receive from volunteers in our community means the world to me.  With no paid staff members, we certainly couldn't do this alone!

Program: Tote Bag Program

Budget:
$20,000
Category:
None
Population Served:
Homeless
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General

Program Description:

Our Tote Bag Program provides "Bake Me Home Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix," baking supplies, toothbrushes & toothpaste, a family cookbook, and a Kroger Grocery Store gift card to families from many local agencies.  We serve homeless and battered women's shelters, a transitional family housing center, local food pantries, and kids in foster care.  The purpose this program is to provide struggling families with a fun shared experience that may not otherwise have an opportunity to enjoy.

Program Long-Term Success:

Our hope is that our Tote Bag Program will increase the sense of well-being for disadvantaged children, and therefore increase their academic, and later in life, work performance. Gallup Student Poll research shows that well-being can being increased by providing children with an experience that may be otherwise unavailable to them, time for fun, and quality social time for parents and children together.

Program Short-Term Success:

The short term success of this program is in the number of bags we distribute, which bring great immediate joy to all the families we serve and the volunteers who participate in the program.

Program Success Monitored by:

The success of our Tote Bag Program is largely monitored by the number of bags we are able to distribute per bag, the cost per bag, as well as the number of agencies we serve.  We currently serve 15 agencies, and distributed 364Tote Bags during our last fiscal year.  We expect to serve over 500 this next fiscal year. Due to the population we serve, and the method of distribution (bags are given to agencies to hand out), we do not have direct contact with every family.  We rely heavily on feedback from the agency administrators and case managers for feedback regarding our program. Additionally, the growing numbers of volunteers for this program are a measure of the success of this program as related to our mission to "promote volunteerism."

Program Success Examples:

The perfect example of the success of our program comes in a quote from one of the shelter moms who received a Tote Bag from us... "The cookies were great!  We had everything we needed and I've even used my pan lots of times since then.  I really felt like I accomplished something with my daughter."

Program: Family Portrait Program

Budget:
$3,000
Category:
Children & Youth (0-19 years)
Population Served:

Homeless
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

Our Family Portrait Program provides 5x7 portraits on the spot to shelter and food pantry families!  We own all of our photography equipment and printer and receive donated 5x7 picture frames.  We work with volunteers and professional photographers to take portriats of disadvantaged families.

Program Long-Term Success:

Our hope is that our Family Portrait Program is providing life-long momentos, and preserving childhood memories, for families who may not be able to afford a professional portrait.

Program Short-Term Success:

We are able to provide immediate portraits to disadvantaged families, many of whom do not own a single picture of their child.

Program Success Monitored by:

We monitor the success of this program by the number of portraits that we take per year.  During our last fiscal year we provided 131 families with portraits. 

Program Success Examples:

The best example of our program successs is in a quote from one of our battered women's shelter moms who received a portrait... "Thank you for this.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  I will always look at this and remember our turning point.  I am free."
