As a service provider we are being mandated to grow and function in a much wider capacity as coordinator of local services and as a developer of new support programs and services as dictated by the community and county we are physically located.
In order to increase the number of youth services provided, the number of youth serviced, and to function as an accredited agency hub for youth services we are pursuing a program to raise $500,000 in seed capital order to form our YSO Series 1 cluster.
This cluster will produce, at full capacity, 48 youth service capacity (total serviced at any one time) 64 jobs, and $400k+ revenue income into the local economies. Each area the cluster is located and centralized around a community revitalization target area.
We have developed a clustered grid that encompasses a framework of ten management teams for infrastructure services and support as outlined in our GBI Series 4800 standards or Q3:ISO4800 Business Incubation Standards Framework. These teams include Finance, Community Dev, Real Estate, Advertising / PR, Publishing, Insurance, Technology and Management.
The ignition spark is built around our 8 grid residential service homes consisting of virtual admin office and 8 homes. Our residential services matrix is described below to service the following populations and time frames:
2 male and 2 female long term care homes 30 days to adulthood for at risk youth 12-17,
1 male and 1 female emergency care facility short term residence 24hr – 30 days
1 male and 1 female transitional homes services 18-24 yr olds
Within the cluster we are set to service a minimum of 48 youth total in long / short term and male / female facilities population thereby helping to also diminish homelessness because of the continuation of care, enabling the youth to achieve a successful transition into adulthood, independence and community living. We currently have 2 youth group homes in operation so the expansion will put 8 facilities under our supervision and successful programs which include rehabilitation, family reunification, education and re-entry.
