Resource Champion Network
One of things we have learned from conducting Poverty Simulations is that people living in the crisis of poverty spend a great deal of time trying to find the resources they need. These folks go from one office to the next filling out similar forms that are often 5+ pages in length. HMFC and the Northwest Wyoming Poverty Alleviation Coalition dreams of the day people can spend more of their time improving through education or looking for a job. To help with this challenge HMFC has purchased a cloud-based, networking tool call CharityTracker by Simon Solutions. CharityTracker was purchased using funds through the Foundation of the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming and Christ Episcopal Church. With these funds HMFC has the ability to provide unlimited access to businesses, churches, and organizations for two years.
HMFC and the Northwest Wyoming Poverty Alleviation Coalition has created a program, The Resource Champion Network, to connect as many businesses, churches, and organizations as possible. The program allows resources in Big Horn Basin to make referred, find resources quickly and do so in real time. The benefit to members is it:
- provides up-to-date resource information
- provides resource referrals for their clients in real time
- a secure website that contains a custom database which tracks client use and gives a comprehensive view of support provided in the Big Horn Basin
- data reports are available for grants and agency information
The network is also a benefit to individuals as it allows them to go to one place and get the help they need.
