Charting Impact

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

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 improve the behavioral health and health status of the LGBT community in Houston. To link the community together to enable healing from the bigotry of the recent equal right ordinance defeat and negative media messages against the community brought out in the election.

Community forum and discussions, behavioral health services, positive messages about the community in the mainstream press and cultural competency education for other providers and the general community about the LGBT community.

The Center has staff and volunteers who are skilled in these areas. Funding is being sought for the education component.

The tone of the social media and mainstream media in the community is reviewed monthly to discern the understanding and support of the LGBT community in the media. Client surveys are conducted ongoing but semi-annually in an organized effort to take the temperature of the community.

The election is very recent. We have convened a debriefing meeting with all the organizations involved and initiated several media pieces on the community to correct the perception put out by the anti-amendment ads.
