ForKids Financials and Outcomes

Transcript of 2010 ForKids Annual Report


  • 7,700 children will fall into homelessness this year in Hampton Roads.

    One in three homeless people is under the age of 18.

    Homeless children and families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.

    ForKids is currently serving 250+ families with 500+ children each week including 40 families with 80 children in residence each night.

    ForKids serves families throughout South Hampton Roads and Western Tidewater.



  • Dear Friends,

    Thanks in large part to the generosity of our community, ForKids

    continues to rise to the challenge of meeting the exploding need for

    services for homeless families. The good news is that, as of this writing,

    ForKids is serving well over 250 families with life changing programs;

    however, this good news is tempered by the continued increase in the

    number of families we turn away and the lack of growth in funding from

    our institutional funders. Turnaways, eligible families that we cannot

    serve due to capacity constraints, have risen over 50% and no end is in

    sight. The lingering effects of the recession will continue to impact our

    community for years to come as many have exhausted their savings

    and are just one unplanned bill away from becoming homeless. As a

    program and not just a shelter, ForKids is able to prevent our families

    from slipping through the cracks only to raise the next generation of the

    homeless. We can stop this cycle.

    The transformative effect of ForKids presence is on display on 38th

    St. in Norfolk as evidenced by the beautification of nearby homes,

    the private investment in the surrounding real estate and the recent

    rebuilding of the city playground. What started as a single duplex

    on a run-down block now encompasses thirteen apartments and a

    central service center surrounded by white picket fences and rose

    bushes tended to lovingly by our volunteers. ForKids continues to face

    significant challenges as government funding has not kept up with the

    increased demand for services and in many cases has declined. As a

    result, ForKids has pushed for efficiencies, but we have been forced to

    reduce the depth of services to remain fiscally sound. The community

    continues to step up as your contributions approached 50% of our

    budget this year and are projected to easily exceed that level next

    year just to maintain the current levels of service. Further erosion of

    our services is likely as stimulus funding expires in the year ahead.

    With direct services in Norfolk, Suffolk and Chesapeake, ForKids is

    now truly serving the region and hopes to break down historic barriers

    between cities to develop a regional solution to the problem of family


    Thank you again for your support and belief in the life changing work of

    ForKids. We are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of families

    and children at a time when they need us the most.

    FY 2010 SERVICES AND OUTCOMES ForKids served 333 families with

    715 children this year, an increase of 60% over last year.

    95% of school aged children in ForKids programs at the end of the school year advanced to the next grade.

    79% of families found transitional or permanent housing upon exiting ForKids programs.

    Our dedicated volunteer base logged over 8,700 service hours representing nearly $175,000 in value to the agency.

    Completed a 3 year strategic plan to guide the agency forward.

    Implemented prevention services in Chesapeake.

    NEW INITIATIVES FOR FY 2011 Expand Hot Meals and

    Homework in Chesapeake.

    Start up ForTeen, a targeted program for teen residents of ForKids.

    Open the ForKids Family Thrift to financially support our programs and to provide household items to families as they exit ForKids.

    Implement improved assessments for all educational programs.


  • Jennifers storyJennifer is a motivated 18 year old who seemed to

    always find herself in the wrong place with the wrong

    crowd. When she and her mother entered the Elizabeth

    Place Transitional Housing Program, she was on the

    wrong path heading nowhere fast. She was currently

    repeating 9th grade for the 3rd time and was on track

    to fail for the 4th time. Just a few weeks after entering

    the program, Jennifer was suspended from school for

    fighting. To make matters worse, her classmate pressed


    With her failing grades and court charges of assault

    and battery, Jennifer felt hopeless until her ForKids

    case manager suggested Commonwealth Challenge.

    Commonwealth Challenge is a free military-based

    program designed for at-risk youth in Hampton Roads.

    It provides structure and training, so struggling students

    can earn their GED. Given Jennifers involvement with

    the NJROTC at Maury and her dream of joining the

    military, the Commonwealth Challenge was the perfect


    When approached with the idea, Jennifers face lit up

    as she expressed her excitement to join the program.

    She continued to attend tutoring and worked diligently

    to participate in all the Childrens Services initiatives at

    ForKids. Jennifers case manager and her mothers case

    manager labored to gather all the items Jennifer needed

    for the Commonwealth Challenge, even donating some

    items themselves.

    With the necessary items in hand and the support of

    ForKids, Jennifer joined Commonwealth Challenge

    Youth Academy. Jennifer completed the Hard-Core Pre-

    Challenge and was promoted from Candidate to Cadet.

    Shortly thereafter, she wrote a letter to her mother

    telling her how much she loved her. She wrote that she

    was currently a road guard, but that she would soon be

    promoted to squad leader.

    At the end of her letter, Jennifer asked her mother

    to thank ForKids for all they had done in helping her

    make a change in her life. Jennifer is grateful for the

    opportunity and has plans to join the Navy and attend

    college after her graduation from Commonwealth

    Challenge. 24% of homeless children graduate from high

    school, but with the help of ForKids, well over 90% of

    our kids graduated to the next grade (compared to 60%

    nationally). Jennifer is a living example of breaking the

    cycle of homelessness and poverty, and this is why we

    do what we do.

  • FY09 represented another year of dramatic

    growth and change at ForKids due to the

    expanded regional presence of the agency

    coupled with growing demand for services.

    Net fixed assets increased to nearly $3.6

    million, an increase of $1.5 million as a

    result of the contribution of Suffolk House

    ($615,000) and the purchase of Dillon Place


    Revenue growth reflects continued growth

    in fundraising, the contribution of property

    associated with Suffolk House along with

    a number of one time gifts associated with

    the merger including nearly $200,000 in

    professional services that were donated to

    complete the acquisition. The Dillon Place

    purchase was funded by Government

    Grants and a $200,000 loan.

    I am once again pleased to report that

    ForKids received its 18th consecutive audit

    with no findings conducted by Cherry,

    Bekaert & Holland.

    Looking ahead, ForKids is continuing to

    expand its services despite the challenging

    governmental funding environment due to

    the increasing need and the requests from

    the communities we serve. Growth will

    only be possible with the generous support

    of the community although the Board of

    Directors is working with staff to address

    the corresponding fiscal challenges to

    manage growth responsibly.

    On behalf of the Board, thank you for your

    support of ForKids meaningful work. We

    ask for your continued support as we strive

    to break the cycle of homelessness and

    poverty for families and children in our


    Chuck Saunders, Treasurer


    FY10 represented another year of dramatic growth

    and change at ForKids due to the expanded regional

    presence of the agency coupled with growing demand

    for services. ForKids completed a healthy year hitting

    its expense and revenue budgets with an outpouring

    of support in June. The statements reflect the final

    transactions associated with the addition of Suffolk

    House. Services growth continued although revenues

    and assets declined on an aggregate basis as we did

    not have any major property acquisitions the year.

    Community contributions grew to 45% of total revenues

    and will exceed 50% in FY11.

    I am once again pleased to report that ForKids received

    its 19th consecutive audit with no findings conducted

    by Cherry, Bekaert & Holland.

    Looking ahead, ForKids is continuing to expand its

    services but at a much slower rate as government

    funding is stagnant at best. Growth will only be

    possible with the generous support of the community

    although the Board of Directors is working with staff to

    address the corresponding fiscal challenges to manage

    growth responsibly.

    On behalf of the Board, thank you for your support of

    ForKids meaningful work. We ask for your continued

    support as we strive to break the cycle of homelessness

    and poverty for families and children in our community.
