Paving the path for ex-offenders

By Lynn Sygiel, editor, Charitable Advisors

Rhiannon Edwards goes to work every day dreaming of a better life. A good job with a bright future. A nice place to live. She dreams of being a productive part of the community.

Edwards doesn't yearn for these things for herself, but for some of Marion County's hardened and most difficult individuals.

Since 2006, Edwards has been executive director of PACE (Public Advocates in Community Re-Entry), a nonprofit on Indianapolis' Eastside that provides everyday, useful services for people with felony convictions to adjust to life outside of prison.

PACE, which started in the 1960s, annually serves 1,500 new clients and 2,000 returning ones. The work isn't always easy. Read more.

Nonprofits rehabbing local ex-offenders

RecycleForce focuses on transitional jobs, employability skills training and supportive services, and last year employed 338 ex-offenders full time.

Since its beginning in 2003, it has helped over 1,000 individuals return to home communities. Last year, the nonprofit recycled more than 13 million pounds of material, keeping them out of Indiana landfills and producing $3.3 million in sales and generated revenues.

Horizon House has had an average of over 52,000 visits in the past two years. Its approach is holistic and focuses on helping clients permanently end their homeless situations, according to Executive Director Teresa Wessel.

The dayroom at this Near-Downtown facility averages 160 people a day and initially offers basic services. Without daytime center, it is difficult to access to other services. The facility has a health center, not just a drop-in clinic, with access to medical and mental health services run by Eskenazi Health.

PACE, Inc. has been a United Way organization since 1967. At its inception, volunteers were ministering inside prisons.

The agency provides one-on-one life skills and develops personalized transition plans that identify potential barriers to success (substance use, lack of transportation, housing, identification, clothing) and ways to overcome them. PACE also offers substantial pre-employment programming, including skills assessments and job-readiness and retention workshops.

University's intense training, develops nonprofit leaders

By Michael L. Jackson, director of marketing and communications, Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs in Indianapolis

In the complex world of nonprofit management, today's leaders must possess a unique set of skills in order to navigate the industry's challenging landscape. Whether it's working with board members, leading a group of volunteers, or competing for fundraising dollars, those charged with running the organization need a broad array of skills.

The Executive Education division of the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) partners with The Fundraising School at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy to provide leaders with the critical tools needed to run a successful nonprofit. Through the Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership program, the two schools have developed a four-course program that delivers intense training for real-world impact. Read more.

Seven attributes of a great fundraiser.
What sets great fundraisers apart from others on their team or nonprofit organization is often based on seven traits or attributes identified in a research study by Dr. Adrian Sargeant and Jen Shang.

Donate-and-skip-the-wait app allows public to jump a restaurant's queue. Using CharityWait, a diner makes a donation and skips the line. Smartline, the company behind the apps, says it's on a first- come first-served basis with reserved tables for donors.

The price of debt. Nonprofits, too, can make fatal or at least seriously hobbling errors when it comes to debt transactions. But nonprofits have an obligation to not only consider the risk of the organization's assets but the public's.
