Annual Reports for 2014-2015 Just Published
We have just published the Annual Reports for our 15th year of providing basic needs for people who would otherwise go without food, clothing, health insurance, medical equipment, and diapers and other baby goods. In prior years, we have published a single report describing all of our activities. Because our programs serve distinctly different populations, we are publishing two separate reports this year: one describing our Baby Essentials for Safety and Trust (BEST) program, which serves 70% of our clients, and one describing our other three programs (IOHIO, ASK and HELP), which we collectively call Connections to Care and which serve 30% of our clients.
Our BEST program received over 1900 requests for assistance from over 700 families and was able to fulfill over 90% of the requests; the services provided saved our clients $90,400. Click here to read the BEST report.
Our Connections to Care programs received 675 requests from 331 clients and was able to fulfull almost 90% of the requests; the services provided saved our clients $134,562. Click here to read the Connections to Care report.
