Impact and Programs
PROP supported over 1,100 households the last fiscal year. 99% of our survey recipients stated that PROP makes sure that they have enough nutritious food for their family needs. PROP rolled out a senior mobile delivery program (after a pilot year) and had over 250 food deliveries. Of those receiving emergency financial assistance to stay in their home, 79% were in their same residency after 3 months. Ninety-four percent of those surveyed that received employment assistance, were employed (67% full time, 27% part time) after 3 months from their last visit. Ninety-five percent of our recipients were satisfied with the support and help they received from PROP. PROP understands that by providing comprehensive support and wrap-around services we can support our clients by keeping them stable and helping them towards a path towards self-sufficiency. PROP is all about prevention. The studies are clear that families that are stably housed and have access to healthy food, are healthier physically, mentally and emotionally, Children do better in school and are emotionally stronger.
PROP serves low-income households by ensuring families are stably housed and have enough nutritious food. Our goal is to provide more food choices for clients and increase the amount of fresh foods, especially produce (65% output through the Fresh Choice Market); grow our senior food delivery program by 15%; and support children and youth by continuing to fund a Summer Food For Kids Program and Youth Scholarships. PROP's goal is to receive satisfactory survey for quality of SFFK Program. For those receiving financial help to keep stably housed, 75% are in the same residence after 3 months of assistance. PROP will need to increase housing support to meet this goal as affordable housing is more precarious. 80% of those receiving employment assistance are employed 3 months after last visit. To be more welcoming and supportive, PROP will expand its written and verbal communications for non English speaking clients. All relevant printed materials will be in multiple languages and PROP will add a language line. PROP will streamline its food program by moving to an electronic process. Ninety percent of our clients are satisfied with the support and help they receive.
