NATIONAL SERVICE & FAITH-BASED & COMMUNITY INITIATIVES Working Together

A STRATEGIC PLAN

2005-2006


2005 2006 goals

2005-2006 GOALS

Goal One:Empower communities to recruit volunteers to assist

with the mentorship of children of inmates and ex-offenders

upon reentry. (“Justice Cluster Initiatives” and the First Lady’s

Helping America’s Youth Initiative).

Goal Two:Continue to remove barriers and (create equal

access for FBCI’s) level the playing field with emphasis on

modeling at the state commission (Governors’ FBCI) and

city partnership levels. Increase private sector leverage to

sustain and strengthen grassroots initiatives.

Goal Three:Increase service programs and participants

in faith-based and other community-based organizations.


National service faith based community initiatives working together

STRATEGY 1.1

Provide mentors to 25,000 children of incarcerated parents

through AmeriCorps*State and National, Senior Corps, Learn

and Serve America, and AmeriCorps*VISTA programs.

Dr. Wilson Goode, founder of the Amachi Program, a faith-based national mentoring model for

children of incarcerated parents.

“AmeriCorps State members helped Amachi during the critical start-up time by providing volunteer and mentor coordination in the local churches. We now have AmeriCorps*VISTA members as part of the overall national expansion for Amachi. Support from the

Corporation has made it possible for us to move quickly and effectively to make a difference in the lives of these children. They have been great. We’re grateful for this support and look forward to continuing the partnership.”


Strategy 1 2 promote disadvantaged youth service

STRATEGY 1.2 Promote Disadvantaged Youth Service

Strengthen and document a national network of youth and adult

reentry models and link volunteer resources with innovative ex-

offender reentry initiatives.

Problem:

  • More than 650,000 adults and 200,000 youth offenders are being released from prisons/institutions every year. (http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/reentry/learn.html

    http://www.urban.org/url.cfm?ID=410927 )

  • These ex-offenders will return to a life of crime (and back to prison) at a rate of 67.5 percent within the first three years of being released. (Bureau of Justice Statistics)

    Goal:

  • Reduce ex-offender recidivism and promote successful reentry into society by connecting mayoral, DOJ, HUD and DOL reentry initiatives with linkages to volunteer support and faith-based and community initiatives.


Strategy 2 1

STRATEGY 2.1

Forge dynamic partnerships with governors FBCI

liaisons, State Commissions and local mayoral

initiatives.

STRATEGY2.2

Assist States in barrier assessment and monitor Equal Protections actions with appropriate T/A tools and guidance.

Strategy 3 1

STRATEGY 3.1

Expand technical assistance and outreach to better demonstrate how national service programs and their members can be a resource to faith-based and other community organizations via program T/TA funding commitments.


Strategy 3 2 pilots partial list

STRATEGY 3.2 PILOTS (partial list)

  • Asset Development - Individual Development Accounts, Financial Literacy (AmeriCorps*VISTA and AmeriCorps*State and National projects, including Accion and National Federation of Credit Unions)

  • Housing, Rural Development and Volunteer Disaster Response

Strategy 3 3

STRATEGY 3.3

Collect accurate and timely data on participation of faith-

based and community-based organizations. Work with OIT to

make data collection a uniform and routine part of program

administration across streams. During the next two years the

Corporation will track the following metrics across programs:

  • Mentoring at-risk youth and children of prisoners, and ex-offender reentry data

  • Faith-based and Community-based participants


National service faith based community initiatives working together

“If federal programs can succeed in empowering grassroots organizations, faith-

based communities, mayors, states, and other vital engines of civil society – and

if together we can strengthen that partnership and make service to others the

credo of every American – then we can truly overcome the challenges that face us.”

David Eisner, CEO, Corporation for National and Community Service

Strengthening America's Children and Families Conference, Jackson, Mississippi, January 16, 2004
