COMMUNITIES RESPOND BY...
- Forming local and non-profit organizations
- Soliciting support from state and federal government offices
- Relying heavily upon donations from churches
Even with all the compassion and expertise available, people still struggle and suffer: with health, or hunger, or housing, or poverty, or transportation, or employment, or safety.
But often, it's all of them at once.
In Communities where so many people care and give,
why do we still see so many unmet needs?
Someone who needs help is usually not facing one singular problem. People are dealing with multiple, complex issues that cannot be fixed with a single solution.
VS. INTEGRATED SYSTEM
Because they are hyper-focused, local agencies are great at solving specific problems. Each organization holds a piece of the puzzle, but it is simply not a complete picture.
Both Agencies and community members lack awareness of the multitude of resources available in the area.
THE CRC MODEL MEETS THESE CHALLENGES
BY INTEGRATING RESOURCES
We offer a rural solution to a complicated set of problems that other organizations have simply not had the time or capacity to address. We offer bold and fearless solutions to tackle complex social challenges. We BUILD.
More than just a building, we provide a hub of service, central knowledge, and collaboration.
Our spacious buildings provide free offices for partnering agencies to serve community members in need.
Our space also provides a place for stakeholders to gather, for healthcare, for food and meals, and for hope and help.
In times of local crises, our buildings are equipped to serve as back-up emergency operations centers.
We bridge the gap between people, organizations, and stakeholder.
When community members come through the door, we link them with the resources they need to improve their lives in both the short and long term.
We also connect organizations into alliances.We can convene partners, policymakers, and providers to solve problems together.
We increase potential at the individual, organization, and county levels.
We offer outreach, marketing, community engagement, collaboration, and a knowledge base of all county resources.
Instead of using financial resources on rent or reception services, tenant agencies can use that money towards programs or operations.
No single agency has the time or resources to do what we can do for all agencies at once.
Acting as a central hub, we reduce gaps and overlaps in provided services in an effort to solve all needs, not just one.
We aren't a provider, but we are a catalyst for setting solutions into place.
