Annual Report 2012-2013
Dear Partners and Supporters, This fiscal year started off with a theme: CHANGE. Over the course of the year, we used this theme to think differently about how we impact the lives of our clients. We stepped back, looked at our work, and thought about how to make it better. At the conclusion of the year, 30 members of our staff and Board of Directors began our real path of change and impact; we went through a weeklong Theory of Change workshop. Our new mission, our new service direction, and a greater vision for our future came out of this workshop. Our mission at Community Housing Partnership is to help homeless people secure housing and become self-sufficient. As you read our Annual Report, you will follow an arrow that represents our clients’ pathway to self-sufficiency. This pathway is enabled thanks to our staff, Board of Directors, and you, our generous community. Together we can break the cycle of homelessness.
Housing Development & Property Management Community Housing Partnership believes in the Housing First Model; an individual and family must have a home before they can begin to recover from their experience of homelessness. Each year our Housing Development team strives to add more apartments to our portfolio so more people can have a place to call home. The Housing Development team identifies real estate and funding opportunities for new construction and works to rehabilitate our older properties. Our Property Management team operates and maintains our high-quality housing portfolio.
Success • Housing Development secured funding for 188 apartments, including 120 apartments of new construction and 68 apartments of renovated housing for Transitional Age Youth.
• Housing Development also completed the
rehabilitation of an existing property, the Cambridge Apartments, for 60 clients.
• Property Management continued to operate and
maintain 814 affordable apartments throughout our 11 properties.
Gail Gilman, Executive Director
Case Management & Community Involvement Community Housing Partnership’s Case Management teams, also known as Support Services, provide essential services that help our clients reintegrate back into the community. Case managers meet regularly with clients and work with them to create individualized service plans designed to address issues related to their homelessness, increase quality of life, and become selfsufficient. Clients also become active members of their communities. Clients participate in our Community Housing Organizing Project (CHOP), an eight-week training on community organizing and our Recycling and Environmental Awareness Program (REAP), a tenweek course on environmental leadership in the community.
Success • Support Services staff engaged over 89% of clients
in services, and 43% of engaged clients had an active individualized service plan detailing short and long term goals.
• The CHOP trained 35 new clients in the We Are All
Organizers course and had 100 clients volunteer to increase voter participation.
• The REAP graduated 25 new environmental
leaders and diverted over 784 tons of waste in the Tenderloin and South of Market neighborhoods.
Training & Employment Preparation Community Housing Partnership’s Employment & Training team provides a suite of services to help clients enter or re-enter the workforce. Clients have an individualized employment plan to help guide their successful re-entry into the workforce. This plan includes strategies the client can use to address and overcome barriers to employment and create a strong support system. Together, the program’s three components, employment counseling, professional services workshop, and Lobby Services Training Program, help clients secure employment in the property management and hospitality industries.
Success • The Lobby Services Training Program graduated
47 clients, and the Professional Services Workshop graduated 69 clients.
• Helped 148 formerly homeless individuals gain
employment through our Employment & Training Services with an average wage of $11.29 per hour.
Supportive Employment, Solutions SF Community Housing Partnership’s social enterprise, Solutions SF, bridges the gap between our training program and full time employment. Solutions SF provides 24-hour on call lobby services to local businesses. Over 80% of Solutions SF employees are formerly homeless individuals. Solutions SF employees receive the necessary support and training to guarantee their success in permanent employment. Approximately 75% of Solutions SF’s costs are covered through the business revenue and the other 25% is subsidized revenue, which covers the social costs.
Success • Solutions SF’s business grew by 62% and achieved more than $1 million in sales.
• Solutions SF employed 120 individuals with an average of 55 employees at any given time.
• Solutions SF increased permanent job placements by more than 200% in one year.
• Helped 62% of clients maintain their positions for at least six months, a key benchmark in employment retention.
