M I SSI O N Seeks to enable all people, young & old alike, to realize the wholeness of life that God intends.

Committed to Program Growth Fairness and Honesty Diversity Accepting Faithful and Faith-Based Committed to Families Excellence Integrity

CONTENTS Chris Cox, MSW, LCSW President and CEO Hoyleton Ministries


Annual Reports are an opportunity for us to show concretely the ways in which we have been faithful stewards of your gifts and trust throughout the past year. This 2012 Annual Report is testimony to the creativity, the tenacity and the responsibility with which the Hoyleton Ministries Board and Staff engage the work of healing and walking with God’s most vulnerable children to wholeness. It is not simply “a job;” for the calling to this work engages not simply the head but one’s heart. We do not do this work alone. Many hearts are forever changed because of their involvement with Hoyleton. The faces of these volunteers are as young as eight— mounting a Christmas Toy drive at her church; and as old as 90, making warm blankets for snuggling. The hearts of a dedicated crew brought life and gift to us during the week they were on campus as they tackled the renovation of our Bethel Chapel with paint and new doors, creating an inviting and useful space. 2012 was a year of incredible growth—new programs, new initiatives, and new efforts to meet the demands of families and children whose hearts are broken and lives are in deep need of tender care. Hoyleton Ministries listens carefully and responds again and again to God’s call. New programs mean change. New programs mean stretching and growing. Yet we can do nothing less… Because at Hoyleton—we indeed live each and every day— From The Heart.

All programs at Hoyleton Ministries are focused on hearthealing outreach to our kids and their families. Some kids come to us with broken hearts, and others come with shattered hearts. They need so much help to start healing from abuse, neglect and pain. They come with baggage that makes our own life experiences look like an overnight bag. The specialized, caring people who work in our programs share a ministry of presence as well as their expertise with our kids to help them heal and reach the highest level of wholeness they can achieve. One of our widely-known programs is FOSTER CARE. Children in foster care have been removed from their parents because of unsafe conditions at home. We provide children with loving foster parents and make sure they receive the health, education and counseling they require. We work with parents to learn the skills necessary to provide a safe home for their kids. Our foster care program currently stretches across 12 counties within Southern Illinois. At any given time, we have 200 children in foster care. Working in foster care requires walking into difficult home situations, driving countless miles, and attending numerous meetings always with a clear focus on what’s the best outcome for the child. We also help foster care families through COUNSELING, where we serve on average 50 children, adults, and families during the year. Foster care children often need care living with the impact of past physical and sexual abuse. Biological parents need help understanding what they need to change to bring their kids home again. Beyond foster care, we offer the

FAMILY CARE PROGRAM at St. John’s United Church of Christ in New Athens, IL and a new counseling program for teen girls at St. John United Church of Christ in Wood River, IL. When children reach the age of leaving foster care, we continue caring for them as they transition to living in the INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAM (ILP). We have approximately 30 youth between the ages of 19 and 21 years old in ILP, in 15 communities. Hoyleton provides an apartment and guides each youth toward reaching their personal goals. We help them find employment, continue their education, and learn skills to manage their household. They are released from state care on their 21st birthday. We recently expanded from our East St. Louis central office to a satellite office at Zion United Church of Christ in Marion, IL. HOPE HOUSE in Highland, IL is home for young adults who have reached 21 and are living independent lives through a Community Integrated Living Arrangement. They have support from Hoyleton staff as they navigate living on their own. We currently have capacity for eight residents. The historic foundation of Hoyleton Ministries is the



Annual Report: From the Heart • 2012

We can serve 40 young people at any one time in five residential cottages, and in the past year 55 kids spent all or part of the year with us. We specialize in caring for developmentally disabled kids between the ages of 9 and 21. Our kids have behavior disorders, psychiatric disorders and learning disabilities- and sometimes all of the above. We provide counseling through a Clinical Supervisor, five therapists and three recreation specialists to find heart-healing ways for our kids to live with memories of abuse. In total, it takes 84 staff to care for the 40 kids in our care, from their schooling, to their homelife, to their physical well being.

PUENTES DE ESPERANZA, or Bridges of Hope, is an

outreach to the growing Latino community in our area. We currently offer three programs to help families in transition that have little to no English-speaking abilities. The IMMIGRANT

FAMILIES RESOURCE PROGRAM served 278 unduplicated families last year, including 938 family members, and they did it with one full-time and one part-time staff person. Many government programs in our area have no bilingual staff. Our program helps families navigate paper work and language barriers to receive benefits they are eligible for. LATINO SPECIAL SERVICES serves approximately 40 families a year providing translation and interpretation services, well-being checks, and parental education to Latino families, often times requested by the Department of Child and Family Services.

THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM helps families that are non-English speakers be more independent, through counseling, a women’s support group, and interpretation/ translation services through the Department of Human Services early intervention program for developmentally delayed children. Many of our programs try to address problems before they happen, or before they escalate, including: • SEEDS OF SUCCESS, a program that helps families that have been investigated for child abuse but have not yet had their children removed from the home. The staff helps with education, bonding and nurturing the kids, teaching parents how to provide a safe and loving home for their kids and hopefully preventing further intervention by the state. • SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAM, working with kids 11 to 17 years old who are residents in most of the major cities in Washington and Clinton counties in Illinois, and who are at risk for substance abuse, including drugs, alcohol and tobacco. • PROJECT SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD, a program that serves East St. Louis, Centreville, Fairmont City and Washington Park, IL, aimed at reducing violence through increased law

enforcement presence and investigations in high crime areas. We are approved and certified annually by the US Attorney General office as the fiscal agent for this program. • TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION, currently working with 400 kids and 300 parents at five schools in Madison and St. Clair counties, empowering youth to change their behaviors to avoid sexual transmitted diseases and unintended pregnancies. • TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION specifically for residents of six residential programs, including the Hoyleton campus. Kids in residential programs are at greater risk of early sexual activity, unprotected sex, STD’s, HIV and pregnancy, This program aims to reduce high risk behavior through discussion and education that’s appropriate for the age and mental ability of the residents. Sometimes, unimaginable things happen to children and adults, and Hoyleton Ministries tries to pick up the pieces when they do. RESCUE AND RESTORE works with local law enforcement, health providers and social service agencies to raise public awareness of human trafficking. This modern form of slavery remains invisible to most of society, and its impact is devastating to those trapped in it. Rescue and Restore is currently focusing on identifying and stopping sexual exploitation of homeless and runaway youth in our area. At the most serious end of the spectrum, Hoyleton Ministries supervises two programs that deal with the death of children. We are fiscal agents for the SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CHILD DEATH INVESTIGATIONS TASK FORCE. The task force investigates unusual or unexplained deaths of children age 17 or under in the lower 38 counties of Illinois. They report their findings to law enforcement if criminal conduct is discovered, and they provide funds to aid in testing evidence when necessary. THE CHILD DEATH REVIEW TEAM, for which we are also the fiscal agent, examines all deaths of children under state care via nine regional teams. The teams look for ways to prevent future deaths through changes in practices and policies within the Department of Child and Family Services. Stop for a moment and think of the range of things Hoyleton does- from caring for an abused child in residential care, to working with a Latino family receive medical care, to teaching youth how to avoid pregnancy, all the way to investigating the death of a child. Our staff are truly hearthealing people in so many lives and in so many places. Our staff of 230 across all our campus’ and programs work every day to spread out across southern Illinois and knit together the struggling, broken and shattered. Without our dedicated staff, we could accomplish nothing. With them, we accomplish much that changes and improves the lives of children.

YOUR WINGS ALREADY EXIST ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FLY! 2012 • Annual Report: From the Heart



Every organization likes to say they have great staff, but we

really mean it. It takes more than skill to work for Hoyleton; it takes dedication. Working with kids all day may sound great, until you think about the issues that our staff deal with on a daily basis - physical abuse, mental abuse, mental illness, relived traumas, anger, grief, loss - and the list goes on.

Why do we do this work day in and day out? Many of our

folks could work any number of places with fewer emotional burdens, and perhaps make a few more dollars. They could work with kids with “issues”, just not so many of them that are as deep and heartfelt as they are at Hoyleton. That slogan


you see on all our printed materials, “Called to Care for Those


In Need,” says a mouthful. If our staff weren’t truly called to be here, they wouldn’t be. We are all called to this work, and we are blessed by seeing the hand of God move through us, helping children from unimaginable circumstances to live in community and reclaim their humanity.

We can not say enough about staff working on the front lines

with our kids, and that includes everyone working at Hoyleton, even our dedicated foster families.

The battle metaphor is

intentional, as we are in a daily battle to help deeply traumatized children find a place of peace in their lives. We think of our staff as heart-mending people, but that works both ways. All the staff at Hoyleton Ministries are healed through the gift of doing this work, too.

Annual Report: From the Heart • 2012

We enter 2013 with great expectations, with a number

of new ideas and initiatives starting to take root. The Board of Directors and staff have started working on a Strategic Development Plan to guide Hoyleton Ministries into the future, and we know some of the things we intend to emphasize going forward.

First and foremost, we are a faith-based organization

and we will continue to honor and respect that tradition. God walks with us daily at Hoyleton Ministries, and we are thankful for God’s continued healing, guidance and watchful care.

Second, we will expand as opportunities that mesh

historical roots, don’t take us for stodgy or stuck in our ways. Hoyleton Ministries is a nimble organization that provides the most current therapeutic practices and treatments across diverse settings to meet the needs of children, youth and adults. We expect both expansion of existing programs into new regions, and establishment of new programs to serve new populations in the coming year.

And third, we are a transparent organization, and we

are accountable in our finances to the community and to our donors. We want you to readily see where and why we spend money, and furthermore, to see the positive social change that those dollars make in improving the health and wellbeing of children.

We thank you for your continued prayers, volunteer

service and financial support. It is always heart-warming and inspiring to grasp how many people carry Hoyleton in their hearts.
