What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The women that CWJC serves often lack transportation, childcare, and basic needs. The more CWJC can expand their resources and partner with other agencies, the better we can empower women in their education and job resource needs, ultimately changing their lives in a more permanent, long-lasting way. CWJC Waco is working on solutions to the problem of childcare for our class needs. We have structured an online platform for learning during the COVID-19 crisis and this is a promising solution to a continual threat to our organization's outreach. Still, though online classes are one solution, the process of learning and growing in a face-to-face environment is more desirable and produces the sustainable change CWJC looks for in its clients. If we were able to adapt to the need of childcare and transportation for our clients, we could greatly expand our services and reach more women with job training skills and high school equivalencies.

Charting impact

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

CWJC Waco is working towards a county-wide reach that will need a great deal of economic support to accomplish. While we are set to serve all of McLennan County, we have truly only served the expanse of the city of Waco in the 15 years of CWJC McLennan County's existence. Our longterm plans include the hiring of more staff to help us train and cover the county, which stretches some mileage. Strategically, having more staff to train remote education sites and direct case management will assist in covering the county. Additionally, the trouble of childcare and transport for clientele is always a hurdle we are aiming to overcome.

1. Build our digital profile through social media, video and written blog, website management and strategic capturing of traffic data.
2. Build revenue through strategic partnerships, both local and national. Additionally, build grant income through strategic grant writing and planning.
3. Continue to build community relationships and donor relationships through partnership and transparency.
4. Expand services and hire with excellence.
5. Provide excellent staff support and salary packages enabling staff longevity and commitment.

CWJC Waco is well-known in our community for excellence of character and excellence of practice. As we look to expanding our services to women all over McLennan County, CWJC will have to capture the intrigue of the greater McLennan County community. Expansion of our community partnerships and campaigns will greatly assist us in aligning our goals with the county's interests. This longterm goal, while challenging, is attainable through the hiring of excellent staff and the support of an already supportive Board of Directors. The strengths of our programs - holistic education coupled with mentoring - carry with it the promise of transformation for the community.

CWJC Waco made a great leap forward with the hiring of excellent staff in 2019. Our Executive Director and Site Coordinator have already realized many goals in 2019-2020, even in the midst of global crisis. Within the first few months of hire, the Executive Director secured a Technology Fund Donation enabling the organization to conquer its largest hurdle to date. The campaign to upgrade and curtail technology problems for the overall organization was highly successful and saw increased technology usage both in the classroom, by the staff, and by the students. Together, these two staffers were also able to mobilize a very successful campaign to increase enrollment by 50% from Fall 2019 to Spring 2020 - with an influx of students that doubled our served population. These two staffers were recognized in the local Wacoan Magazine for their excellence in women's leadership in April 2020.
