How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In 2011 Changing Course realized a goal that began in 1998. We seen the need to develop a Boys home and in February 2011 we moved into a home and now have 5 young men raning in age from 13-18 living in the home.

For 2012, one goal is to expand the Boys Ranch.

Another goal is to use the expertise of our Executive Director and her newly acquired Masters of Science in Managment to help corporations with their communication and being able to be more effective in their workplace.

Funding Needs

At this time Changing Course has set a capital campaign goal of raising 2 years worth of operating expense. We have grown tremendously within the last 3 years and would like to continue that growth by providing a stable finacial portfolio. Our other current immediate needs are to raise $9,305.10 by January 30th for the balloon lease payment on our foster home that we support.
