When they no longer need to access ALP services
Our next steps include ensuring we record, retrieve and report on the data connected to these outcomes. The implementation of electronic information data system (a database called OTIS) will allow us to track participants and the journey toward their goal.
We are committed to understanding the people we serve and we strive to learn the number of people who need support with respect to:
We are interested not only in the numbers of people requesting support but also the number of people who use that support to meet goals. Furthermore, we want to know the number of participants who do this and achieve long-term stability; this will require check-ins and follow-ups to determine if this is the case. Our hope is that Aunt Leah’s commitment to inclusive community building will encourage people to, as one person put it, “come visit because they want to, not because they need to.” We will also track
the number of people who wish to “give back” as volunteers. Youth in care need to feel that they belong, have worth and valuable contributors to their community. Aunt Leah’s Place is committed to long-term, wrap-around support of youth equivalent to the family support received by their parented peers.
