How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

ResourceWest helps people become more connected, more resourceful, and more hopeful about their future. Staff and volunteers provide resources to families looking for food, clothing, shelter, healthcare, jobs, education and more. Families with limited incomes can struggle to provide basic needs and additional expenses without breaking their budget; we help families do both by providing free supplies through our three Children/Youth programs: Back-to-School, Winter Warm Wear, and Toy Chest. Individuals and families facing a financial and/or family crisis may need more intensive support from our professional social work staff; our Social Services Program may include: Case Management services, Emergency Financial Assistance and Housing Subsidy and Case Management. From crisis to action to hope, the services of ResourceWest stabilize families and ultimately help build healthier communities one neighbor at a time.

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?
    In all that we do, the Board of Directors and the staff are guided by four core values:
    - the potential of all children to succeed;
    - the ability of people to help themselves to improve their lives and their communities;
    - the need for people to live interdependently; and
    -the value of every person to society

    The goal of each program we offer is to empower the individual or family. We believe that a person can achieve their highest personal goal when they have access to power, resources and control over their life.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    As we develop plans, programs, and budgets, the Board of Directors and staff are guided by these three principles:
    - maximizing access for clients to existing community-based resources, including our own;
    - developing collaborative programs with organizations capable of supporting our mission; and
    - developing new resources for clients in partnership with agencies, organizations, and individuals aligned with mission and vision.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Not available.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Not available.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Not available.
