Programs
Description
This program and the corresponding funds help provide individual and/or family counseling services for those who could not otherwise afford these services. As funds are available, we offset the cost of counseling services for those who qualify for the program.
 
The budget is reflected on a per session rate: 
Budget $50
Category Health Care, General/Other
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Short Term Success We are already seeing success as more than 100 families have received counseling at a discounted rate.
Long Term Success Long term success of this program will consist of no one being denied counseling services due to inability to pay for professional counseling services.
Program Success Monitoring
Counselors keep track of progress made by individuals in the Wings of Hope program and the Executive Director keeps track of funds available and monitors the need for those funds by individuals seeking counseling services.
 
Executive Director also communicates with counselors to keep track of how many session are needed by each client in the program.
Program Success Examples A client who was able to receive counseling as a part of the Wings of Hope program finished counseling, obtained better employment, and has now donated to the Wings of Hope Fund to help others in the same situation.
Description
Uplifting Pastors Ministry is meant to help local pastors deal with the stress/burnout often associated with being the pastor of a church.  Surveys have shown that more than half of pastors experience depression, anxiety, and burn-out as a result of their job.  Our UP program offers 5 free counseling sessions to pastors with one of our counselors.  We are also offering gift cards as a way to help pastors spend time with their families, and free day trips to help them have the opportunity to relax, be refreshed, and spend time with other pastors.
 
Budget below is cost per pastor:
 
Budget $200

Population Served Adults
Short Term Success Pastors will have the opportunity to meet and spend time with other pastors as well as be treated to time with their families.
Long Term Success Pastors will be less burnt-out and better able to serve their churches due to the support they have from others in the community.
Program Success Monitoring Success will be monitored by feedback from pastors as well as staff evaluation.
Program Success Examples We have provided a total of free counseling sessions to more than 20 pastors and/or their families.  We have also been able to send gift cards to pastors on their birthdays as a way to encourage them in the ministry they do.
