Charting impact

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

Endeavors seeks to provide comprehensive, effective and innovative services that empower people to build better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. We serve our clients by providing services that target homelessness, unemployment, child abuse, disabilities, mental health, childcare, education, disasters, self-sufficient living, and counseling. Endeavors unifies families torn apart by poverty, unemployment or neglect providing real, practical solutions and a path to earned income and autonomy.

Families receive counseling, crisis intervention, case management, homeless prevention services, parent training, practical life skills, and vocational support, training and employment. We provide services through many programs, several of which focus on homeless individuals, families, and Veterans.

Endeavors has 53 years of experience serving the community with best practices for homeless and disabled adults, at-risk children and youth, national disaster relief, and Veterans in crisis. We have experience leveraging public, private, and corporate resources to assist people in crisis, and we have built a reputation on collaboration in order to expand our services. We have demonstrated expertise in working with all of the populations we serve and we understand that a community-wide support system is crucial in order for our clients to believe in themselves, belong to a community, and become the person they aspire to be.

Our Fairweather programs are successful in providing supportive housing, case management and life skills to individuals and mothers with children. Family Endeavors' KPIs indicated the following May 2016 results for the FWL and FFL:
• 100% do not require psychiatric hospitalization once placed in our program
• 79% are either employed, in continuing or other community activities
• 90% have increased their Life Skills documented through pre/post testing.
• 86% have increased their Family Income

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
