...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

Program I: Helping traumatized children in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) Resiliency can be nurtured through a relationship with a caring adult who can share a sense of hope. We will train local community members to help children in St. Vincent and the Grenadines using 3 "layers" of accompaniment. Program II: Focus for Success Improve learning and school performance for children by teaching focus and attention skills. Develop brain healthy lifestyles using the 6 pillars of brain health

What are your strategies for making this happen?

Program I: Each child will be matched with adult mentor(s) based on their needs. We will provide training for adults to serve as mentors and models. Training layers will be: • Kinship Partners training – to foster long-lasting relationships between caring adults and children and teens. • Stephen Ministry training – to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to children and teens who are hurting. (Later, this might expand to serve adults as well.) • Mental Health training and Spiritual Direction – to provide guidance to overcome trauma, abuse, and to find connection to God acting in our lives. Program II: Cedarbrook’s Focus for Success Children will learn to focus using Play Attention – equipment originally developed by NASA. Sensors read brain waves much like a stethoscope reads heartbeats. Students learn to activate the "brain waves for focus" by controlling computer activities ("games") with brain activity alone. Other components fo our Emerson Focus for Success program include: • Movement – physical activities that improve brain function and focus • Nutrition – enjoy healthy brain snacks (and bring recipes home to share) • Nature and Nutrition – plant and grow a brain-healthy potted garden • Relaxation & Mindfulness – learn relaxation and calming techniques that improve focus (and likely improve sleep at home) • Interact with others at brain-stimulating strategy games (chess, checkers, Go, and others.) • Students will also coach peers to improve focus and gain the benefit of improved learning and focus for themselves

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

Few in number but passionate volunteers. No administrative expenses (all-volunteer). "Large streams from little fountains flow, Tall oaks from little acorns grow." ~ D. Everett 1797 "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Helping traumatized children in St. Vincent and the Grenadines success is measured in reaching goals in the development process. After programs ane in place, we will have demographics of population served and measurements fo student success markers. Focus for Success measures brain activity for focus on a daily basis and parent and teacher report quarterly.
