Impact Statement
Each day of the year The Salvation Army meets basic human needs by providing food, shelter and emergency financial assistance to those in need.  We are working to end the cycle of homelessness by providing homeless individuals and families with a safe environment, programs that address barriers to self-sufficiency and services that promote self-reliance and independence.  One of the primary efforts of The Salvation Army is to move those who are experiencing homelessness to housing.
Needs Statement
The Salvation Army is a religious and social service organization dedicated to the never-ending battle of helping those in need.  We have a long history of successful programs where clients that desire to undergo a life change can participate in programs that allow them to make these needed changes. Our programs are designed to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the men, women and children who have nowhere else to turn. 
Our biggest needs are related to funding of our primary programs that include but are not limited to the following:
  • Daily Feeding program for breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Emergency Financial Assistance - homeless prevention
  • Emergency Shelter for men and  women 
  • Pathway of Hope - homeless family residential and other services
  • Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation programs
  • QLife - Quality Life by Choice - for chronically homeless adults
Background Statement
The Salvation Army, founded in 1865 in London, England has a rich history of providing help to those across the world who are less fortunate.  With its services of compassion, the Army found its way to Sarasota County in 1927.  Since that time, an array of programs have been offered to residents who have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances, those who have either been forgotten by or left out of mainstream society.  The Salvation Army adjust programs based on national best practices and the community interest.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
In 2017, The Salvation Army celebrated 90 years of providing life-changing programs to those in need in Sarasota.  During that time, the Army has been at the forefront of dealing with everything from hunger, disasters homelessness and addiction in our community.  As both a board member and volunteer, I have seen first-hand how hopelessness is transformed into hope, individuals throw off the shackles of addiction, and at-risk families step from homelessness into a home, all through the amazing work of the Army’s dedicated officers and staff.

A current focus of the Army is its Pathway of Hope, a multi-generational approach to support at-risk families.  This approach addresses not only the needs of the adult family members, but also on the needs of the children in an effort to break the cycle of poverty and addiction. 

Through its two, highly successful residential treatment programs and the addiction “Recovery Pods” in the Sarasota County Jail, the Army seeks to break the chains of drug and alcohol abuse that bind so many individuals, especially our community’s youth.  Nothing is more heart-warming than attending a commencement ceremony from our treatment programs where individuals, now clean and sober, are reunited with their family and loved ones.

Through its rental subsidy programs, the Army, in 2017, moved 319 adults and children from homeless into a home; not a shelter, but an apartment or house they can call “home”.   

The Salvation Army of Sarasota strives each day to do the most good in tackling some of the toughest problems in our community. I hope you will join me in supporting their life-changing efforts.

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
The Salvation Army has addressed the challenges of homelessness in Sarasota for many years.  The Salvation Army continues to re-evaluate our response to be more effective.  We believe our efforts need to move from just meeting basic needs  to providing access to affordable housing, supportive services and critical financial support.
The Salvation Army in Sarasota continues with the promise of "Doing The Most Good." The Salvation Army has aggressively sought to simplify the vision and program services to more effectively engage public participation in our efforts to fulfill that promise.  Specifically, The Salvation Army has aligned all programs under three priorities; 
  • QLife - is our effort to increase the quality of life of individuals through behavioral choice models.  The simple goal is to move persons from homelessness to housing by extending strengths and choices which in turn reduces the cost to society and the risk to the individual. QLife, in it's third year, is proving effective in reducing the days and thus the years of homelessness.
  • Pathway of Hope: 2 Generations Quality of Life - is our effort to serve both generations of families that are homeless or at risk of being homeless. By focusing on the social momentum of the parents and the social mobility of the children, The Salvation Army is able to assist families to break free from the traps of generational poverty. A concentrated effort, the Pathway of Hope focuses on increasing the income of the parents and the education achievement of the children. This program is an extension of The Salvation Army's youth and family work experience from the last 150 years. 
  • Life Recovery - are those programs that assist persons whose lives have become unmanageable to gain control once again of their future. Life Recovery starts within the county jail pods where Salvation Army curriculum is used to bring forth knowledge and allow a choice for change. Life Recovery includes the ten week programs at the Center of Hope that brings forth new disciplines through community interactions.  Life Recovery also assists with enhancing employment, sustaining housing and creating stable social networks. 
The Salvation Army Sarasota Area Command is focused on Mission-Vision-Strategy-Execution-Leaning.  Our service is reflective of the compassion and expectations of the community.  Reflecting the quality of community in the lives of Others allows an increase in the quality of life for All.  As I joined this Sarasota community in June, 2017, I have not only been impressed to see how this community stand with us to embrace best practices and new efforts, but how it continues to work together to address the many needs .  The Salvation Army would not be able to do what we do without the support of our donors and community leaders. 
Major Charles Whiten
Area Commander 
Emergency shelter services are available to anyone in need regardless of race, creed, age or gender. We have more than 200 beds. Those in need of temporary shelter are provided a safe, secure environment along with nutritional meals throughout their stay.
Chronically homeless clients are invited to participate in the QLife program which is working with case workers to address their immediate need for housing. 
We are considered a "low barrier" shelter and we follow national best practices of "housing-first" model for shelter services.  Our priority is  to help clients move into housing, not just to shelter more clients

Short Term Success
A client entering The Salvation Army is provided shelter and case management.  Through our QLife - Quality of Life choice model, clients can be provided 28 days of shelter.  (3 days of comfort, 25 days to meet with case worker to develop a plan - PATH/Plan of Action To Housing and to work on this plan). If clients do not wish to make changes in their situation or meet with case workers, the daily fee for their food and shelter is 30% of their declared income.   Through case management at the entry level, there are options to move to various programs, including Street Teams - a work readiness program, to CRP(Community Recovery Program) - a drug and alcohol rehab program or transitional living programs. If clients decide to enter one of our life changing programs, there is no fee. 
Long Term Success
In most cases, homelessness is a temporary situation.  For clients entering the shelter, we must first assist them as they move past the immediate crisis stage that brought them to The Salvation Army. Then to the goal of self-sufficiency and ultimately to successful independent living.  They first establish a plan of action to stabilize the situation, seek solutions for immediate needs and then long term goals.
Program Success Monitoring
We track client services in HMIS (Homeless Management Information System) which is the required software of HUD.  We also use a 90 -180 day cycle to test policy and procedure changes in an effort to improve efficiency and effectiveness.  
Program Success Examples
Based on a note left  in December, 2017 for Mark, who works with QLife and HOT.... as written by client and not corrected for grammar or spelling.
"Hello Mark.  I just wanted to say thank you! You have helped me so much.  I came to you Hopless, Homeless and alone in the dark.  You gave me Hope, when I had none.  You gave me a Place out of the cold.  You also lit a light and Pointed me the right way. Thank you!
I would also like to Thank you for all you and The Sally done for me.  I will alway remember the people here and all you guys do.  I watch you help many people everyday with many problems.  God bless you all.  Thank you!
Your a great man, You got a great heart Thank you!
Always with a kind word and smile goes along way =Priceless = Thank you so much

I will always remember you here at the Sally
Thank you, you saved me.
God bless you all!"

Our Social Services serve as the Homeless Prevention program of The Salvation Army.   Previously, struggling families and individuals are pre-screened through United Way 2-1-1 referral service for eligibility for assistance with rental/mortgage assistance, utilities assistance and clothing assistance.  We are currently working to adjust procedures to accommodate the changes created by the restructuring of 2-1-1. Case managers meet with clients to verify financial status and documentation of needs.  Clients must be Sarasota County residents in order to request assistance and must be at or below 150% of the national poverty level.
Budget $1,432,901
Category Human Services, General/Other Temporary Financial Aid
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served General/Unspecified Other Economic Level
Short Term Success
Short term success means we were able to avert a family/individual from entering the homeless cycle since we were able to provide emergency financial assistance. 
Long Term Success
Long-term success for clients receiving assistance is achieved when the clients are checked 90 days after receiving assistance and they are still in residence - they did not become homeless.
Program Success Monitoring
All services are tracked through HMIS(Homeless Management Information System).  When rental/mortgage/utility assistance has been provided, we check 90 days later to verify if they were able to maintain their residence and have not become homeless. 
Program Success Examples In December, "Charles" a disabled man came to The Salvation Army. Charles disclosed that after several years of being homeless, he was granted access to Section 8 housing.He did not have enough money for an electricity deposit. His only income was Social Security. While Charles worked with a case manager on a case plan, they successfully secured Season of Sharing funds and used the funding to have the electric turned on in his new apartment. Charles was able to move into his apartment right away because of the assistance! This is an example of a tremendous success story in which a homeless, disabled man is now sustainably housed. It is through community collaboration and the help and support of multiple agencies that make this and other success stories possible. Charles reached a successful outcome through help from Sarasota Housing Authority, The Salvation Army, United Way and Community Foundation/Season of Sharing.



Pathway of Hope is The Salvation Army's national initiative designed to provide enhanced services to families with children desiring to take action to break the cycle of crisis and inter-generational poverty. With Pathway of Hope, clients have the confidence to meet their goals, improve their education, career and quality of life. 
Pathway of Hope is incorporated into our Family Resident Services - formerly called FAITH(Families In Transitional Housing) program.  Family Resident Services is a temporary housing program for homeless families with children.  Twelve furnished apartments are offered on the Center of Hope campus.  Families pay a maximum of 30% of their income; utilities are provided free and families may stay up to 6 months or until they are able to secure housing.  
Family Resident Services is a structured program where residents have an opportunity to gain employment, save their money, repay their debts, learn and practice money management.  This is coupled with intensive case management and basic life skills training.  This program helps fill in the gaps of life skills that residents have missed.  When residents leave the program, they are better equipped for success.  Personal responsibility and accountability are emphasized throughout this program.  Families move from homelessness to self-sufficiency. 
Pathway of Hope offers extended case management, sustainability groups and life skills classes where the goal is to move families from crisis to sufficiency. It is more than a quick and temporary help for families struggling with poverty.  Pathway of Hope families can receive these services for two years.

Population Served Homeless Families
Short Term Success
Short term success is  when the parent is working full-time, has established a savings account, is attending life skills classes, is completing required steps to seek housing options.
Long Term Success
Long term success is achieved when program residents go from homelessness to self-sufficiency.  In this case, self-sufficiency is achieved when the participant has completed life skills training and has moved to independent living.  With required savings benchmarks throughout the program, participants can achieve savings that represents first, last deposits as well as utility deposits.   
Program Success Monitoring
This is an intensive case managed program with one director and two case managers for 12 families.  Weekly paperwork, scheduled and unscheduled meetings with case manager to ensure appropriate spending and budgeting for self-sufficiency goals.   
Program Success Examples

Single mom with two young boys under the age of 4, came to Family Resident Services(FRS) in August  She was a Sarasota County resident that needed inpatient drug and alcohol treatment where she could have her boys with her. She completed a drug and alcohol program in Miami FL and came back to Sarasota not having permanent housing. Mom has a significant criminal history and two evictions on her record. While in FRS, mom has been able to obtain and maintain employment. She has secured preschool for the boys. She has completed phase one of the Financial Stability Initiative where she was able to learn practical financial skills to rebuild credit, open checking account and work on her monthly budgeting skills. She obtained a lease to move into her own apartment within 8 months of entering FRS. She has also been approved to join TSA Sustainability Group where she will continue to receive case management services and a stipend towards her rent while she works on increasing her income.

We provide two drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. CRP and VIP-ER are both ten week residential programs based on the AA 12-step model.
The VIP-ER (Voluntary Interim Placement -Enhanced Recovery) is a collaborative effort with several local agencies; the program is geared for those seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addictions.  The VIP-ER program case management philosophy is based on teaching people to become more independent, gain self-esteem and give them a sense of what they are capable of achieving.  The treatment plan is person specific, based on individual goals.  Based on the AA - 12 Step model, we work with each client to help them learn to live a "clean and sober" lifestyle. This program receives funding through Sarasota County and is often offered by the local judicial system as an alternative to incarceration. 
CRP (Community Recovery Program) recovery tract addresses the elements of faith and spirituality that clinical programs overlook. We stress making the right choices to break the cycle of addiction in this holistic recovery experience.  "With God, all things are possible!" This program extensively uses volunteers from the recovery community as teachers, mentors and case work. All expenses  for this program are covered by general Salvation Army private donations; no federal, state or local funding is provided for this program.

Population Served Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers
Short Term Success
Participants must be alcohol and drug free when entering the program and remain that way or they will be dismissed from the program.  This residential program while 10 weeks, may require several weeks to several months before they actually enter the program and then have up to 2 months to transition out once they have graduated from the program.   During that time, case managers meet individuals on a regular basis to evaluate their progress. In addition, every other week case managers and counselors meet to discuss each individual client's progress and make recommendations to help ensure success.
Long Term Success
Long term success is evaluated on how long someone stays "clean and sober" following a residential rehabilitation program.  National standard average 10-15% at one year's time - which is alarmingly small.  The VIP-ER program averages 60% at the end of one year.
Program Success Monitoring
All information is tracked through the HMIS(Homeless Management Informaton System) the required software program of HUD.  Contracts are reviewed by outside funders to ensure program integrity.

The Center of Hope provides breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days a year.  With an average of 600-700 meals a day, we are utilizing donated food to provide healthy, nutritious meals to more than 3,092 unique clients each year. For fiscal 2017 we served 159,917 meals
Budget $968,055
Category Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/Other Food
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Homeless Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers Families
Short Term Success
The short-term success of this program is judged based on the fact that we are able to provide three meals a day, 365 days a year, approximately 500-700 meals per day for those that need assistance. 
Long Term Success
There is no long-term success for a daily feeding program.  Since humans need 2-3 meals a day, they will be hungry every day. We measure our success based on the fact that a person receives a meal and is no longer hungry for that meal period.  We judge that the program is successful because we continue to have $1.5M of in-kind food donations and 300+ volunteers each year.
Program Success Monitoring
Actual number of meals and clients provided on a daily basis is provided through HMIS(Homeless Management Information System) - the approved software program required by HUD - US Housing and Urban Development.  In addition, we take client surveys periodically throughout the year.  Where possible, we implement the suggestions of the clients we serve. 
Program Success Examples

"Alex," a man in his early 20's, arrived at TSA upon release from jail, where he had been participating in the Recovery Pod program. Alex entered into our Community Recovery Program, looking to remain clean and sober. After being here several weeks, Alex learned that his girlfriend was pregnant. His first reaction was to leave the program in order to support her and the expected baby, a primary concern being food. The Managers devised a plan to support the mother and baby by granting access to the Food Pantry and receive Food boxes monthly or more as needed (the mother was working and receiving food stamps but it still was not enough). This unique arrangement was for the purpose of giving the family some stability and to allow Alex to get a foundation and the tools to stay clean and sober and eventually reach long-term success. Alex commenced the Recovery Program after Christmas and is doing well today. He stops in to say hello and thank you, and is expecting a healthy baby boy soon.

Program Comments by Organization
The biggest single challenge to successful outcomes for those who seek our assistance is the lack of safe, affordable housing. While we face the fact that people are financially struggling, their ability to move from homelessness to housing is limited by housing options available to them. (Housing barriers such as eviction history and felony records further complicate and limit options.)
The demands for our services continue and the cost of doing business continues to rise.  Despite  cost-cutting measures, we understand case management and extended time of services/assistance are critical components to successfully addressing issues of homelessness and generational poverty.  We seek to improve and enhance program services rather than eliminate programs. This is only possible because of the generosity of our community.

Management Comments by Organization
Since The Salvation Army is an international organization, there are standardized operating procedures that each location adheres to.  An example, there is not a formal succession plan for CEO; the army, however, historically changes officers on a regular basis with assignments usually ranging from 3-7 years in any particular location.
Should there be an emergency preventing the Area Commander(CEO) from performing normal duties, The Salvation Army can temporarily assign an experienced Salvation Army officer to take over any or all duties to ensure proper oversight of the day to day operations.

Governance Comments by Organization
Please note, on a local basis we utilize an Advisory Board for local recommendation and supervision rather than a Board of Directors.  All Salvation Army's are structured this way. 
The Salvation Army is structured to raise funds on a local level for its programs and services.  No fundraising occurs on a statewide or national basis.  Each local unit is assessed 10% of its revenue to the supervising headquarters for their support services.  Please note these are fees for services - we receive a significant return on these fees.  We not only receive an economy of scale but the pricing and level of service could not be achieved by a single location.  These support and supervisory services provide continuity and stability to the organization as a whole and gives cohesion and direction to our local service programs .  Our supervising headquarters also provides certain necessary and adminstrative services.  This service fee provides both program and financial audits ensuring compliance in all areas, employee and legal services , as well as portfolio management.  The centralization of these services allows The Salvation Army to maintain one of the lowest rates of operating costs among nonprofits organizations. This enables a larger percentage of our local dollars to be applied to direct service delivery.
