Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Originally from the USSR, Board President , Evelyn Gore came to the United States 26 years ago. Knowing the state of the country she left behind, decided to make a difference in the lives of people with basic needs in her new homeland.  Evelyn is a dynamic business woman with a strong devotion and a belief in supporting and helping others. Upon coming to America, she started her own private enterprise, launching a successful international travel agency.  She founded her Face_ of_ Hope outreach in 2008 and has been successfully helping families with children and single adults since that time.  Evelyn's work ethic and philanthropy is inherited from her father, a submarine captain and one of three Russian army military professionals handling international cargo shipments and her mother, a well known physician in the USSR.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
We are a unique group of people from all branches of employment from Book Authors, to Nurses, Doctors, Religious/Spiritual Ministers, Accountants, Educators and other professional and normal productive citizens of the United States.  We have a vast array of talent to offer in dealing with the poor and needy population of our underserved area.  We have come together to reach out to those in need and especially those that can not find help by any other resource.  We asses clients needs and come up with the the plan for each person and ad assign a staff or those who partner with, to perform the task we set out to deliver and with great success we might add.

Short Term Success There have been 70 individuals who have benefited from our educational program to date.
Long Term Success The long-term success of this program can be measured in the number of clients who no longer require weekly food, clothing and toiletries because they have been employed.  It can also be measured by those who, because of using new skills, go on to acquire more skills through training and employment.
Program Success Monitoring Our intent is to implement a tracking program that will allow us to determine exact numbers of persons helped.
Program Success Examples
Denise Yaffe, through our training and assistance, was able to find a job in the local school system.
Five Russian emigrants were helped to apply for janitorial positions at the Saratoga School District and were employed.
Forty-two others have been referred to department stores for janitorial work, two persons were hired at a local fence company,
and twelve working at data entry at the Nielson Research Center.
Nine more were referred to the Coastal Care Nursing Center in Venice.

Experience

Originally from the USSR, Evelyn  is a dynamic business woman  multi-lingual in English, Russian and  Ukrainian. She start her work career at the age of 16, and by age 22 Evelyn was elevated to the position of manager for VIP's at the Black Sea port club in Odessa. She earned a Masters Degree in Education and Business Administration from the University of Leningrad and operated a very successful international travel agency for over 20 years in NYC.  She has volunteered countless hours for many non-profits including  the United Way.
Evelyn founded the Face_of_Hope Foundation in 2008.  As an international project and the first of many charitable quests, Evelyn planned to give people in her adoptive Ghana West Africa community of Gomoa Techyam, west of Accra, the knowledge and tools needed to take charge of their families and survive the destruction they had experienced by natural disaster.  Through the exhaustive efforts of the FoH founder funds were provided to FoH from benefactors, the community is now self-sustaining. Evelyn moved to Warm Mineral Springs in North Port, Sarasota County in 2010 where she began the local FoH Community Outreach Program.  Each week FoH provides food to area families in need.  Through her efforts, over 400 families received services such as case management, housing, employment, vocational training and job placements, food, clothing, and children's items (dippers, formula, car seats, cloths and shoes). The future of the South Sarasota community will improve because of the relentless positive efforts of Evelyn Gore and her program.

Management Comments by Organization Opportunities are everywhere.   Needs are everywhere.   There is no place we look where there is not somebody in need of help...with either food, shelter or with some type of mental health or drug related issue.  We also desire to help those men and women coming out of prisons and those fathers who are coming to reconnect with their families.  It is very challenging but one that our board members and all those people who help us reach out are desirous to fulfill.

Comments
Governance Comments by Organization The primary challenge we have at the current time is providing remuneration by monetary means to our board members and unpaid staff members thereby rewarding them for excellent service so far. Just as anyone else we all have expenses and in order that these premium people continue to help us with their expertise and connections for matching funds with people we also struggle to help them meet their own needs.  This is a  challenge for us that we feel must be met so that all our contacts will stay with us and continue to supply us with their expertise and talents in reaching out to those with far greater basic needs in our community.  It is our desire that we remove transients from our streets and woods but not just to 'get rid' of them but to help them secure housing, food and hygiene and medical services. This will keep down the spread of  disease and famine running rampant in our own backyard.  Those are our goals.
