Measuring Our Impact
For almost 150 years JF&CS has offered life-changing programs and services to an evolving community with ever changing needs. We have seen our programs make a tremendous difference to those in crisis - helping people feed their families, heat their homes, keep roofs over their heads, and so much more. Intuitively and anecdotally we know we are doing good.
But how good? And for how long? Are we doing the right things? We have decided to find the answers to these critical questions. In our 2010 strategic plan, we made a commitment to examine our work in a more rigorous way. We did this because we believe it is our obligation as a human service agency to spend every dollar that is entrusted to us in a judicious and prudent way. It is our goal to prove that every intervention makes a difference.
