ESC Annual Report 2018


A LETTER FROM... John Joines, CCAP CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER A YEAR IN REVIEW It is once again the time of year to share with our funding sources, our board members, our community partners, our staff and all other interested parties information about the undertakings of Economic Security Corporation of Southwest Area (ESC). And, it is truly my pleasure to say thank you to all of those who have helped us to ensure that we meet our mission of “working within our communities to alleviate the conditions of poverty and provide individuals and families with opportunities that will enable them to achieve economic security.” LET’S TALK FINANCES The state of our agency remains strong. Funding resources for 10/1/16 through 9/30/17 totaled $17,516.881. ESC operates some 38 different programs utilizing 40 plus funding sources. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST This year there are two new projects of particular interest to our clients. ESC has been working with the City of Joplin and our for-profit partner, The Vecino Group of Springfield, Missouri, to develop 32 units of permanent housing to help address the needs for persons with disabilities, Veterans who are homeless, and seniors. Permanent Supportive Housing is another step towards ending homelessness in Joplin and continuing to rebuild from the Joplin disaster. This year ESC received a grant from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The Early Head Start- Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) initiative brings together the best of Early Head Start and child care through layering of funding to provide comprehensive and continuous services to low-income infants, toddlers, and their families. Federal Early Head Start funds are combined with Child Care Development Funds (CCDF) administered by the State of Missouri. ESC is one of 50 organizations throughout the nation to be awarded one of these grants. It’s the result of Economic Security Corporation’s Early Head Start program which has worked creating partnerships in over 6 Southwest Missouri communities to expand high-quality, no cost child care opportunities. This early childhood opportunity focuses on serving children ages zero to three years. The grant targets families who are working or going to school. The grant award will provide $6 million dollars over a five year period. Seventy-four new children will be served and fifty new jobs will be created once the grant is fully implemented. SUMMARY In addition to the new programs I outlined above, I am happy to report that ESC received increases this past year in virtually every program that it administers on behalf of low-income individuals and families. It is with boundless gratitude that we commend our legislators at the state and Federal levels for their understanding and willingness to help those less fortunate and those unable to help themselves. We look forward to continuing to provide innovative, as well as time tested, programs that will meet our client’s needs. John Joines, CCAP ESC Chief Executive Officer 4
