PEERS Committee In a continued effort to stay mindful and diligent in regards to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion conversation Hoyleton Youth & Family Services created a PEERS committee made up of a diverse group of leaders throughout the

organization, focused on advocacy and collaboration to create a culture where diversity, equity and inclusion are valued throughout the Hoyleton Community. PEERS stands for: Promote-Educate-Empower-Redefine and Support. The members of the committee finalized their FY 2022 objectives and these were recently approved by the Board of Directors. These objectives give the PEERS group an opportunity to work towards achieving goals which align well

with Hoyleton’s initiatives throughout the agency and community. The PEERS group is evaluating current common language within our organization and introducing social justice and social identity terms and the “why” behind the importance of using updated/appropriate terms. Members of the committee are developing a list of comprehensive terms and language to disseminate to staff. They will also be assembling a reference /resource virtual

library, made up of videos, books and documentaries, for staff and community members to further learning about social identities and systems. Another action item in the PEER group objectives for FY 2022 was a salary analysis request to ensure equal pay throughout the organization. Hoyleton is currently evaluating salaries to determine if adjustments in pay scale is necessary. In the coming months our staff will have the opportunity to attend Lunch and Learn events, hosted by the PEERS group, where DEI information will be provided and employees can share their lived experiences in small more intimate settings. The PEERS committee will also provide the Hoyleton clinical staff the opportunity to consult with a specialist in cultural competence if needed. Hoyleton marketing will include language that supports and promotes DEI awareness on our website and in our recruiting materials and videos. These intentional marketing efforts will continue in our messaging to our communities via the media or on billboards, transit system advertisements and client handbooks. Our commitment to DEI initiatives will be consistently communicated through donor, foster care and employee newsletters. With the guidance of the PEERS committee we are creating processes to assess and identify diverse vendors for partnerships. The Hoyleton mission is built on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to realize the wholeness of life that God intends. Hoyleton moves forward fully embracing these objectives in an effort to effect positive change within our organization and in the communities in which we serve.

Above the Line Tax Deductation for Charitable Contributions Increased As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), fewer taxpayers were able to itemize their deductions and receive a tax benefit from their charitable contributions because of the increased standard deduction. In turn, some donors lowered the amount of their contributions. The CARES Act reincentivized charitable giving by creating a $300 above the line deduction for qualified charitable contributions. The CAA increases the available deduction to $600 in 2021. This deduction is available to all taxpayers who plan to take the standard deduction on their 2021 tax return. To qualify, the donations must be in cash, not stock or donations of clothing or other property, and must be made directly to a qualifying charity, not certain private foundations, or donor-advised funds.

wish lists.

As we enter the last quarter of the calendar year, taxpayers are beginning to evaluate year-end giving opportunities for budgeting and tax planning purposes. Standard giving strategies such as qualified charitable distributions (QCD) from an IRA and the donation of appreciated stock are always worthy of consideration.

FALL 2021

Elimination of the 60% Charitable Contribution Limit Extended Under the TCJA, individuals that itemize are allowed a deduction for cash contributions to certain charitable organizations up to 60% of their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). If the amount of the individual’s contributions is greater than the 60% limit, the excess is carried forward and treated as a deductible contribution for the next five years. Section 2205 of the CARES Act modified the contribution limits for individuals that itemize to deduct qualified charitable contributions up to 100% of their AGI. The CAA extends this benefit through 2021. This change only applies to cash contributions made to a public charity, excluding supporting organizations and donor-advised funds. Stock donations and gifts to private foundations are still subject to the 30% of AGI rule. Opportunity for IRA Distributions Eliminating the 60% contribution limit creates a huge opportunity for donors who want to make a significant impact to charities this year. Under these rules, a donor can take a significant distribution from their IRA, rather than the annual $100,000 QCD limit, donate it to charity, and take a deduction for the full amount. If you’re considering leaving a large portion of your IRA to charity in your estate, this may be a year to consider a large gift, especially if you are expecting to have a taxable estate. You could benefit from tax savings and see the benefits your charitable donation produces during your lifetime. Every taxpayer’s situation is different; please contact your tax advisor to determine if any of these strategies make sense for you.

our youth and families.

Longtime supporter of Hoyleton, Pearl Spies, remembers visiting her grandparents years ago in Hoyleton and seeing the community newspaper in their home printed in German. Her grandparents took her to visit the Children’s home back in 1933 and Pearl fondly remembers the youth at Hoyleton.

Our donors, regardless of the situation, continued to support Hoyleton and our mission. For many, giving to Hoyleton is a tradition, it is a routine. Generations have supported Hoyleton because their parents had. Times have changed over the years, but the desire to support our mission continues to exist. We could not have made it to where we are today without our donors’ desire to provide. Pearl, who is 92, forged through the past three years remembering the youth at Hoyleton and providing for them through our Back to School Drive and Hope for the Holidays campaign. She adapted to the

Times have changed since Pearl’s visit almost 90 years ago but our mission, to enable all people to realize the wholeness of life that God intends, remains constant. For years, Pearl’s family supported Hoyleton in various ways and Pearl continues with that same passion her parents had for the Children’s Home.

Hoyleton Golf Classic Our annual golf tournament was a huge success! Good times and lots of fun memories were made. Of all of those who responded to our survey, 100% of golfers said they would highly recommend others to attend. It is a day out of the officer to enjoy the weather, socialize with friends, and most of all the opportunity to support Hoyleton Youth and Family services. When asked what makes the Hoyleton Golf Classic unique, responses included, poker hands, drink stations on the course, and a copious amount of hospitality, food and drink. Not to mention the friendly staff who volunteer on the course! 34 teams was a great turnout!

Hoyleton continues to grow and develop into a robust social services agency. As a result of a grant that was secured from the state of Illinois Department of Mental Health, in July of this year, our growth will now include a crisis care department which will ultimately provide Mobile Crisis Services in St. Clair County.

Ellen Ahlmeyer Roland and June Ahlmeyer Carole Augustin David and Audrey Steiner Albert Dick Barth Joyce Barth

Being a provider of this state program will allow Hoyleton to respond to citizens in St. Clair County while they are experiencing a mental health crisis and assist them in getting the support they need during the crisis as well as offer follow up services. The goal of this program is to establish a continuum of crisis services to anyone, anywhere at any time.

Valerie Bates Carol Holbert Albert Bathon Lavonne Bathon

Current suicide rates in this country are at the highest levels since World War II. In 2018 48,000 Americans died of suicide. The need for quick, reliable access to emotional support and crisis counseling has never been greater and Hoyleton is committed to providing life-saving resources to the community we serve. This is a 3-year project with this first year focusing on building the capacity to provide mobile crisis care. We are currently recruiting a Manger of Crisis Care and will soon be hiring and training staff on Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) best practices. Hoyleton plans to have this mobile mental health team in place ahead of the rollout of the national 988 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline taking affect July 16, 2022.
