Charting impact

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

Our purpose is to plan a course of action of providing quality educational services for the at-risk youth in Southeast Hanford California. Many of the children spend a great deal of their leisure time on the streets of Hanford as primary targets for known street gangs for new recruitment. This action along puts the youth at-risk of becoming involved in gangs and other criminal activities. Hunger Free America has created programs to combat crime and provide intervention for youth. The program offers them ways to change their immoral behavior in exchange for a safer, nurturing and learning environment. Therefore we attempt to offer them hope through our community oriented programs designed to change lives through education, shared experiences, and exploration.

The organization encourages staff members to share their expertise and innovation as part of a shared vision. The organization has three evaluation purposes; (1) encourage staff and clients to excel using technology (2) to promote innovation effectively (3) fostering communication and learning among all staff and members. The organization has implemented strategic goals and currently tracks both financial and non-financial indicators to determine goal achievement. These strategy includes checking to see if operational programs are being effective in reaching it intended goal. And we encourage feedback from staff and clients using surveys. This Strategic approach provides the organization balance and makes necessary changes to the program for long-term goals using both staff and clients input for effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the program.

Our organization is small and currently depends on volunteers from various walks of life to work in administration, distribution and other areas as ambassadors. The volunteers help us maintain the programs while keeping costs low.We have some contributions and donation from local farmers and businesses to help sustain day-to-day operations. We are currently networking with City of Hanford, Edison International and others local organizations. We have over 15 plus sponsors for programs, such as, Status Neighborhood Giving, and Alllie's Hands of Joy which provides much needed assistance to individuals and families. The programs operate through informal social processes and/or organized efforts by individuals, organizations and social networks. Which gives a sense of community among residents, a commitment by residents to organize and act to improve the community, an ability to act to solve problems, and access to resources within and beyond the community. Because residents are the core of a community's assets, they represent the first level in the ecology of community change. As both agents and beneficiaries of community change, they play a central role in shaping, implementing, and sustaining the change needed. Hunger Free America are part of a National initiative investing in communites.

Hunger Free America feels that our staff and board members are doing something that matters personally to a larger world. Our goal was to serve 300 to 400 families, however we have the capability to serve 1200 families which has exceeded our intended goal within 5 years. Our organization provides ample opportunities for employees and self-development. Teams are routinely used for creative problem-solving. Honesty and openness are encouraged and rewarded. Furthermore teams are used to accomplish tasks that cut across work areas or groups. Everyone understands and supports a shared company/personal vision. Team leaders view themselves as teachers and facilitators of the learning process. Relevant information is shared with all people within the organization. Individuals are encouraged to inquire about and address each others assumptions or mental models. When there is a success, everyone shares the credit. There are effective, informal learning networks where people from different levels within the organization exchange ideas. Leaders feel free to experiment, take risks, and openly assess the results of their actions. What does not work is when team members and staff do not feel valued and the company suffers because their morale low and they want to feel needed. Staff members treat each other with mutual respect regardless of what positions they hold. The organization makes it possible for others to learn something new every day. Our long-term goal would be to extend the program within the next 2 to 5 years to others areas of the city. We have achieve a National model in which others states have adopted.
