Fresno Covenant Foundation 2006 Annual Report

Looking back on last year, I’m humbled to see what was accomplished at FCF in one year’s time. In 2006, we reaffirmed our mission and began our first strategic planning process. It was last year, that we had the highest funding and personnel resources, enabling us to offer more services to empower our children and their families. It was last year that we had a chance to assist other small organizations to grow so we can all better serve our community. No matter what accomplishments have been made, our Board, volunteers and staff remain dedicated to honoring our record of effectiveness while maintaining our history of integrity and exceptional services for the people we serve. In 2007, we move forward with a well defined mission - to empower children and families to achieve productive self-reliant lives. We move toward the unforeseen challenges and opportunities that await us. I’m looking forward to another successful year for the Fresno Covenant Foundation, but the true measure of that success will come as more parents have a chance to see their children realize their own . In 2007, I invite you to continue with us on this journey of developing potential and hope for the children in our community.

Fresno Covenant Foundation 2006 Annual Report

T u t o r i n g P r o g r a m The Fresno Covenant Foundation’s first program was our literacy tutoring program. The program started in 1999 with 30 students and has grown to over 500 students daily. It is common for children to enroll in the program who are 1-5 grade levels behind. The goal of the tutoring program is for a child who is enrolled in the program for 6 months or longer, to improve by at least 1 grade level in reading and comprehension. To monitor their progress, each child's reading level is assessed every nine weeks. People from all adult generations come to one of our tutoring sites to read with children. The goal is to give children the individual and small group help they need to improve and be able to read at grade level. Volunteers can work with a child 1-4 times per week, for 1-2 hours (based on the volunteer’s availability). FCF operates five tutoring sites throughout Fresno, five days per week, for three hours per day. Based on FCF’s experience working with struggling readers, FCF (with the guidance and support of teachers and reading specialists) created a curriculum that is available for use by the tutors.


• In 2006, over 700 children were enrolled in FCF’s tutoring program. • 70% of the children who were enrolled for 6 months or longer improved by at least 1 grade level in reading.

Fresno Covenant Foundation 2006 Annual Report

P a r e n t I n v o l v e m e n t Child success is the goal of all of FCF programs and the Parent Involvement Program was designed based on research which shows greater parental involvement correlates with student achievement and success. The Parent Involvement Program works with parents on practical educational issues that they encounter when their child is struggling in school. Parents learn how to navigate the school system, how to work with their child’s teacher, and how to create a home environment that will help their child learn. We work with parents through classes, workshops, one-on-one meetings, and in-home visits. The centerpiece of The Parent Involvement Program is an RV (recreational vehicle) that was transformed into a mobile classroom. This classroom on wheels allows us to provide training in locations convenient for parents, such as apartment complexes, churches, supermarkets, and other non-profit organizations. Our parent trainers are also sent to a variety of locations throughout Fresno and provide workshops in parents’ native languages. Since 2003 The Parent Involvement Program has been funded by a federal grant. 2007 will be the final year of federal funding for this program. FCF plans to continue the needed program through other streams of funding from both grants and community support.


• In 2006, The Parent Involvement Program, was evaluated by CREAD (a research firm of California State University, Fresno). Children of the 13,000 parents who have participated in the program (from 2003-2006) on average scored significantly better on their English Language Arts and Mathematics standardized test scores than those children of parents who have not attended our training.

Fresno Covenant Foundation 2006 Annual Report

E a r l y C h i l d h o o d “A parent is a child’s first teacher” is the philosophy of FCF’s Early Childhood Education program. FCF uses PAT (Parents As Teachers) for the Early Childhood Education Program. PAT is a nationally-recognized, research-based program, deemed an effective program for children aged zero to five years and their parents. This program was started when it was recognized that the children in the tutoring program wouldn’t be as far behind if they had started learning before they started school. This Early Childhood Education program includes home visits, group meetings, and health screenings, with curriculum that focuses on educating parents about their children’s development. This program focuses mainly on nurturing young children and educating their parents.


• In 2006, 200 children ages 0-5 were enrolled in the Fresno Covenant Foundation early childhood education program. • FCF’s staff conducted 2,139 home visits for families with children 0-5 years old, to mentor the parents on how to help their child’s development and prepare the children to start school.

Fresno Covenant Foundation 2006 Annual Report

H e a l t h E d u c a t i o n A n d R e s e a r c h FCF’s Health Program was expanded in 2006 with funds from California Endowment. FCF conducted a Community Health Assessment with the parents we work with, in the Fresno and Firebaugh communities. The purpose was to identify areas of health concern most prevalent within these households, for the purpose of raising awareness and promoting health advocacy within their own families and communities. FCF is also conducting research on adolescent overweight/obesity in an attempt to reduce ineffective parenting strategies, thus increasing practical knowledge about how to prevent unhealthy eating habits. Poor health can easily harm a child’s education, but is often overlooked as a cause of drain on a child’s energy, attention span and brain function. From this program and future research, FCF plans to build our capacity to more effectively respond to community health concerns by addressing the identified needs and becoming a leader in changing unhealthy behaviors among the children and families in our community.


• In 2006, FCF completed a comprehensive, Community Needs Health Assessment. • FCF was highlighted in the study as an organization that is actively providing health education to promote healthy lifestyles among families in Fresno.

The College Preparation Program is one of Fresno Covenant Foundation’s newest programs. Through this program we provide high school freshmen at Firebaugh High School with practical, hands-on workshops and activities in preparing for college. The students named their club - The Eagles College Club. Activities include career planning, guest speakers, and field trips to colleges and universities. The goal of the College Preparation Program is to increase the number of students who go on to attend college. In September, FCF brought motivational speakers Richard Santana and Guillermo Lopez from “Homeboy Goes to Harvard Productions” to Firebaugh High School to speak to the students about the importance of college. Using personal stories and struggles, Richard, a former gang member who changed his life around and went on to get his Masters Degree from Harvard, encouraged the students to stay in school and attend college.


• 60 High School Freshmen signed up to participate in the College Prep Program. • In 2006, the Fresno Covenant Foundation took students to tour Fresno Pacific College, California State University, Fresno, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and Stanford University.

May 1-21, Fresno Covenant Foundation was blessed by the very generous effort of Scott and Liesl Garner, owners of Garner Tree Services, who launched the Tree of Knowledge Book Drive to collect books for the children of the FCF tutoring program. With support from the Women’s Chamber of Commerce, Citi Financial, Grandma’s All Natural Vegetable and Herb Nursery, an entire group of Mary Kay representatives, the school children of Mickey Cox Elementary in Clovis, the Fresno Falcons and countless others, 8,736 books were collected to give to the children in the tutoring program. Through this effort, we were able to provide 15 books for each of the 500 students we tutor, to take home and keep. Not only were we able to collect books for our children, the drive also brought some wonderful attention from our local media. FCF’s programs were highlighted on the radio, on television, and in Bill McEwen’s column in The Fresno Bee. This kind of positive media attention does amazing things for our organization, our fundraising efforts, and our ongoing drive to bring in new volunteers. Our most sincere appreciation goes out to the Garners and all those who participated to help support FCF.

Back to the Fifties, June 06 In June, the Fresno Covenant Foundation (FCF) celebrated a special occasion. Our Executive Director, Luis Santana, turned 50 and we celebrated in a big way. All donations made in honor of Luis were doubled by an anonymous donor. Luis’ birthday was celebrated with a dinner, dance, live and silent auction, all to benefit the FCF tutoring program. Despite the 108 degree heat, a great crowd turned out and over $50,000 was raised in honor of Luis’ birthday. Thank you to everyone who braved the heat and came out in support.

The most important part of the evening was having a chance to turn the spotlight on Luis and honor him for the tremendous contribution he’s made to our community. Luis has dedicated his life to empowering people. In the 7 ½ years that FCF has been in existence, Luis’ expertise and his vision has taken FCF from a small tutoring program with 30 children, to a well respected organization that has served over 3,000 children and over 10,000 parents in the greater Fresno area. Because of Luis’ emphasis on results, the Fresno Covenant Foundation has been recognized by the White House Initiative on Faith and Community Based Organizations, and the United States Department of Education. Chairman Eric Johnson and the Board of Directors surprised Luis by presenting him with Fresno Covenant Foundation’s first ever Donald G. Larson Award for Excellence.

Thank you to all who donated to help us reach our $50,0000 goal.

D e a r Fr i e n d The word hero is a term that is used very loosely in our day. The media portrays many kinds of heroes, from the person who rescues a kitty from a tree, to a solder killed in service in Iraq. A hero’s definition can vary from generation to generation and person to person. Sometimes, politicians, soldiers, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses and teachers make up a hero’s list for a middle age or senior person. A famous sports player, a rap singer and sometimes a gang leader tend to make the hero’s list of most of our younger generations. Parents are mentioned less and less as heroes. The definition of a true hero is getting blurred as time goes on. For me, a hero is someone who I can look up to as model of a person I want to emulate. In 2006, I lost a hero in my life, my dear friend Eleanor Swenson. I met Eleanor when she was just 77 years young. Most of us consider this a good age to begin slowing down, but not Eleanor. In the last 15 years she taught me more about how to live than I had learned in my previous 35 years. This past February, one month short of her 92nd birthday, was when she was called to meet her Maker. Eleanor was an amazing person, up to the very end. Eleanor’s memory seemed to get even better with age. At age 89, she decided that a typewriter wasn’t for her any more, and she went out and bought a

In Loving Memory of Eleanor Swenson


computer and learned how to use it! Eleanor drove her own car and lived in her house by herself until the end of her life. In hindsight, I wish I had told her more how much I appreciated all I learned from her and with her. She wasn’t rich but she believed in the work of Fresno Covenant Foundation (FCF) and is the person who made the largest financial donation, although I never asked her for any donation. Eleanor was a teacher who loved teaching but decided to take early retirement to take care of her elderly mother until the end. At age 85 she became a tutor at FCF. Math was her favorite subject. After a few years tutoring FCF’s children, she needed to have a second hip surgery, making it impossible for her to drive to FCF. I told her that it was probably time to stop tutoring her 6th grade student, but giving up was not in Eleanor’s vocabulary. She decided to continue tutoring this girl at her home. Within six months Eleanor had brought the girl to her grade level in math. Later on, I learned from the girl’s mother that Eleanor provided much more than math skills to her daughter. In the last two years, Eleanor took the role of my advisor. She had a soft voice forcing me to listen attentively for her wisdom. I already miss our long conversations over a cup of coffee and a plate of delicious Swedish cookies she made. Farewell my friend and hero, I will see you again when my Maker calls me as well.
