Basic needs such as stable housing, food, clothing and to access medical care are important determinants of health and well-being. Poverty rates, in combination with lack of sufficient affordable housing, has made securing even the most essential needs difficult for many people in our area. This has a profoundly negative impact and individuals and families, as well as the larger community. The COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated this situation, and shined a further spotlight on the need and inequities that exist.
There are many ways LCS measures success – the number of people we serve, the economic benefit of our services, the prevention of escalating consequences, and the impact on people’s lives. Some things can be measured specifically, and others depend on an individual’s circumstances. Success looks different for each one of our clients. We use a blend of statistics and personal stories to help us measure our impact. Through working with clients every day, we know that the impact of preventing homelessness, providing nutritious food, and creating access to health services is substantial.
