Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

To help victims of interpersonal and intimate partner violence achieve great safety.
To help victims of interpersonal and intimate partner violence achieve housing stability.
To help victims of interpersonal and intimate partner violence maintain or increase their income.
To improve the parenting skills of victims of intimate partner violence.
To help victims of interpersonal and intimate partner violence increase self-sufficiency.
To help victims of interpersonal and intimate partner violence increase self-determination.
To help women and girls become empowered.

We assess for safety, provide personal and legal advocacy, court support, parenting classes, some financial assistance, and transportation. We have a 24 hour, toll-free crisis line and transitional housing.

All of our advocates are trained and meet Minnesota's mandate for sexual assault advocates. We are capable of housing victims, providing a hotel/motel safe home for emergencies, work with local law enforcement to improve safety and help our communities be healthier places to live. We are capable of accompanying victims to court and to the hospital for emergency forensic exams.

Client evaluations that are positive.
Trainee feedback and positive evaluations.
Community involvement in our programs and events.
Volunteer support.

We have provided high quality services to victims for almost 30 years. We give clients evaluations with self-addressed stamped envelopes, of those that have been returned, 98% have been positive over the past 6 years. All advocates ask clients if they feel safer at the end of each contact.
We have consistently met all of our goals for the State and HUD with the exception of income, which was below our target for 2011. That was the only housing goal we haven't met since 1998 when we started the June Kjome Place transitional housing program.
