Success Story: Getting Back The Time and Manpower Nonprofits Often Lack
A Loving Heart Youth Services in Dayton, Ohio, believes that at-risk youths’ current circumstances do not have to dictate their futures. And in many ways, they stick to that thinking when it comes to their own organization, too.
Like so many nonprofits, A Loving Heart could always use more time, more money, and more manpower. But they don’t let that hold them back. If they need the money, they look to grants. If they don’t have the time or the staff to find and secure those grants, they turn to Resource Associates for help.
A Loving Heart has grown and evolved a lot over the past two decades. Since its humble beginnings as a daycare, the organization has expanded to offer residential group home and foster care services for girls ages 14-18 and youth support and programming around critical life skills. When the organization saw a need for more after-school programming focused on resolving emotional issues that might impact learning, they turned to Resource Associates to help them find the right grants and write a strong proposal to secure funds for this new initiative.
