How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

For the past 15 years Hannah's Treasure Chest has partnered with over 50 school districts, nonprofit and social service agencies in 4 counties to provide new and gently used children's items to 7,000 children. This partnership network has allowed these agencies more freedom to provide the case management, financial planning, schooling, etc instead of having to source items a family needs. With the assistance of the community who provides roughly 95% of items that are distributed our team of volunteers and staff are able to quickly assist these children with basic necessities they would have normally gone without or very little of.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

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

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Provide new and gently used children's items to children ages 0-18 who are in need by partnering with local school districts, social service agencies and nonprofit organizations.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    1) Have a strong network of nonprofit and social service agencies who are providing direct service to children and families in need of basic necessities.

    2) Provide a strong communication link between all agencies in the network to provide collaboration and resource sharing not only for all agencies involved, but also for the children and families being served.

    3) Have a strong team within Hannah's Treasure Chest to provide a specific point of contact for programs, including volunteer opportunities.

    4) To be an outlet for the community to get unwanted and underused items back into the hands of those who are in need and also being responsible for sharing items that are not within the scope of our service to agencies who are a better fit.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    1) A strong staff and volunteer team that is trained in areas of expertise.

    2) Large warehouse space to adequately sort, shelf and store items for distribution. This facility also is large enough to accommodate volunteers and volunteer groups in a safe manner.

    3) Strong board who understands their duties of governance and fiscal oversight.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Tracking monthly incoming donations by number of donors.
    Tracking volunteer hours on a monthly basis.
    Tracking the number of children served by agency, zip code and county.
    Communicating the number of items distributed to each agency on an annual basis.
    Maintaining regular open communication with the 50+ agencies we collaborate with each year.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    2014 - secured additional funding for program expansions and to add a Volunteer Manager to the staff
    2015 - received support for Diaper Awareness Week from Governor and 11 municipalities
    2015 - secured additional warehouse space in current location.
