Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In Fiscal Year 2022, MORE served almost 460 individuals in our two programs, Education and Social Services – almost 2,300 individuals total impacted - an increase of 8% from last fiscal year. In Social Services, we served participants more often than the previous two years. The number of average visits for Social Services increased by almost 45% to over 6 visits per person since 2020. With an Onsite Workplace English Class at Bix Produce taking place about every quarter, we saw the number of Adult English Learners in our Education Program more than double last year! Over 95% of our Education Program participants also receive support from our Social Services Program.
Current Goals MORE’s mission is accomplished through overall goals that include: helping refugees/immigrants and other low-income residents of our area meet their basic needs, stabilize financially, achieve or sustain self-sufficiency, assist refugees/immigrants in improving their English skills, and empower them to learn the skills necessary to function more independently in the United States. We work to improve the lives of our newest neighbors by providing programs that remove barriers and ensure our participants’ equal access to important resources and opportunities. Our programs focus on supporting New Americans to learn English and help meet their basic needs. For the current fiscal year, programmatic goals include: increasing the impact of our Education Program by expanding the number of free English class offerings including: adding the Friday Job Club class, growing the Onsite Workplace Literacy Program to an additional two employers, and increasing the number of students in standard classes. For our Basic Needs Services – increase the number of participants in our weekly free food distribution by 5%.
