Most Recent Audit
HFS served approximately 4,369 different individuals in one or more programs in 2010. That represents approximatly one in every eight people in our service area. 81% of those who utilize the foodshelf visited no more than two times last year. This is because our process is comprehensive and our emergency service workers are able to sit down with clients to help them with their budget and discover other areas in which we can be of assistance or where we can provide referrals or other resources to assist them back to self-sufficiency. We are committed to being more than just a bag of food, but to instead be a hand up instead of a hand out.
Current Goals
The HFS goals for 2011 remain the same as the previous year as we feel there is more work to be done in each priority area. However, we have also launched the quiet phase of a capital campaign and an additional priority is to raise the funds needed to purchase and renovate a building as well as the additional dollars for an operating endowment. This must be done while also reaching the operational gift goals as established in our 5-yr resource development plan that was established in 2009.
