Tenant partners report that they are better able to achieve their goals (the Center’s name lending additional credibility) by maintaining stronger revenues, delivering higher quality services, operating larger programs, and benefiting from improved staff morale, recruitment, and retention.
In 2021, our Center’s tenant partners touched the lives of over 24,000 individuals in our community through 93 programs delivered by over 200 staff. The economic impact is profound, as the tenant partners’ budgets totaled over $25 million. Those dollars help to offset and alleviate burdens on other major social welfare systems such as healthcare, the criminal justice system, and education.
The Center’s operational expenses are covered by the agencies’ rent payments, grants, returns from investments held at local foundations, and donations from generous community members.
