Mission Statement
The mission of the Community Service Center of Wilmore-High Bridge is to identify basic needs within the community, obtain and organize resources, and administer a program in order to meet those needs.  The goal of the organization is to assist clients in need, to keep them in their own homes through unforseen financial circumstances, to help clients avoid or overcome a financial crisis, and to help them with referrals to other agencies that may be able to assist them.  Another goal of the organization is to help families and individuals become self-sufficient so that they will be able to meet basic needs on their own without the additional assistance of social service agencies.
Background Statement
The Community Service Center of Wilmore-High Bridge was started as a clothing bank, but soon donations of all kinds were coming in.  It was then decided that a non-profit organization should be formed so that more needs could be met.  CSC was incorporated in 1981, forming a board of directors, with an Executive Director hired to oversee the program.  A thrift store was begun, offering clothing and household items at nominal prices to help fund the program put in place called the Basic Needs Assistance Program.  The thrift store is still in operation. The Basic Needs Assistance Program assists clients in the areas of rent/mortgage payments, emergency shelter, food pantry, clothing bank, and utility assistance.  The program also administers many other activities and addresses other problems clients may have.  We have been a member agency of the United Way and God's Pantry Food Bank for many years.  The Executive Director is the only paid staff person, and is governed by a board of directors.
Impact Statement
In 2013, the organization added 2 new board members. The President of the Board has organized committees and charged them with certain goals.  The organization  moved to a new location which is accessible to everyone.  We are now housed in the basement of a local church, requiring only 6 steps down to reach us, plus the bonus of an elevator so that all residents can get to the Center.  With this change of location, we hope to raise awareness of the Center's services, and make it easier on clients to reach us.  We have recruited more volunteers, and have been able to expand the hours of our thrift store thereby increasing revenue.  We are excited at the prospect of  serving our clients better and more efficiently. As of May, 2013, we have relocated to our new facility in the basement of Clark Chapel at the Wilmore United Methodist Church.  We are now handicapped accessible and everyone can reach us. We have seen an enormous amount of new faces in the Center, and also has boosted sales in our thrift shop, allowing more finances to assist those in need.
Needs Statement

 

  1. Financial donations for our Basic Needs Program. Any amount will help.
  2. Food and clothing donations.
  3. Volunteers to help expand the hours of the store.
  4.  Increased awareness of our services to potential clients.
  5. Increased communication with other social service agencies.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
The Community Service Center is one of the few agencies in Jessamine County that assist community residents in need of basic living necessities, such as assistance with rent, utilities, clothing, and food.  Recently, the Center has seen an increase in the number of persons requesting assistance. The Center has developed a community survey to determine the needs in our areas of service. The results of this survey will then be sent to local media, churches, and other organizations so that we may obtain funding and donations in order to meet these needs.

Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact.
Our goal is to help clients overcome or avoid a crisis situation in their life that may disrupt the daily flow of living, such as assisting with food, utility payments, and rent payments. Our ultimate goal is to help families stay or become self-sufficient through our assistance.
StrategiesHelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals?
As stated above, we hope to assist clients in staying or becoming self-sufficient by assisting them when an unexpected issue arises in their life.
CapabilitiesHelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals?
We are capable of assisting clients in need through financial donations from churches, individuals, organizations, and sales in our thrift shop.  We also have a grant from the United Way of the Bluegrass, and from the Jessamine County Fiscal Court.  We are also a member agency of God's Pantry Food Bank and receive government commodities.  We are also able to purchase food from the food bank at a very nominal cost, allowing us to fill monthly food boxes for families and individuals.
ProgressHelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far?
It is difficult to measure what has been accomplished since we assist clients in an emergency situation, such as loss of electric, water, or gas service.  Many clients move often, and are hard to track.  Other clients are elderly or disabled and on a fixed income, making it hard to track any progress. Measuring our accomplishment relies mainly on tracking new versus repeat clients.

The organization had a wonderful opportunity to move to a new location.  It is centrally located in Wilmore, and will be accessible to all residents, which were two of the biggest challenges the Board was trying to overcome. As of May, 2013, this goal was achieved.

The Community Service Center of Wilmore-High Bridge is also a member agency of God's Pantry Food Bank.
Description
Our Basic Needs Assistance Program is designed to assist low-income families and individuals with avoiding or overcoming a crisis situation in their lives.  Assistance is provided to eligible clients in the areas of utiliy payments, rent or mortgage payments, food pantry, clothing bank, and volunteer projects ranging from yard work to small home repairs.
Budget 61000
Category Human Services, General/Other Emergency Assistance
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent, Elderly and/or Disabled, Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short Term Success
By the end of a 12 month period, we will assess the amount of return clients (clients accesssing our services more than once for the same area of need), and determine a rate of success on the clients part.
Program Long term Success
The Community Service Center is hopeful that by providing services to clients in need, the clients will be able to avoid or overcome a crisis situation in their lives.  With our assistance we hope that they will be able to continue to keep a job,get a job, go to work, feed their family, and in general not have the flow of daily living disrupted by unforseen financial circumstances.  We do realize that there will always be clients in need, such as the elderly and disabled who can do little to supplement their income.  Therefore, the success rate of most of our clients is hard to track.  In that case, we consider a success rate of 50% of our clients not having to return for assistance to be valid.
Program Success Monitored By
Tool used to monitor program success with clients includes monthly services report forms, client surveys, client file notes kept by the director, quarterly financial reports, and feedback from clients and community members.
Examples of Program Success
The Center receives information from other agencies concerning clients and uses that information to help track the success of clients.  We provide referrals to other agencies in order to help clients achieve success.  It often takes the assistance of several agencies to help a client become self-sufficient and not in need of our services.  We have testimonies from several clients stating that our program has helped them become self-sufficient and able to live without the support of social service agencies.
