Mission Statement

SAVE, Inc. provides comprehensive housing solutions to empower socially and medically disadvantaged people to improve their health and lead stable lives with personal dignity.

Background Statement
Since 1986, SAVE Inc. has opened many doors in the Kansas City metropolitan area for those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. The founders of SAVE Inc. and several community volunteers realized that many people dying from AIDS had little support to see them through the end stages of this horrific disease due to the stigma surrounding AIDS. SAVE Home was opened in 1986 serving as the first 24-hour hospice care facility in the State of Missouri for individuals dying from AIDS.
From this original hospice six-bed facility, SAVE Inc. has expanded its services to owning and operating 9 buildings, which include 64 units of housing for transitional and permanent purposes. SAVE Inc. provides rental/utility assistance to individuals or families that choose to live offsite in one of the 15 county metropolitan areas as well as referral services and furniture. Altogether, SAVE Inc. serves over 900 individuals and families every single month, spending over $300,000 per month to do so. SAVE Inc. has invested over $3.7 million in capital improvements in the east midtown area of Kansas City, Missouri, successfully combining affordable housing development with urban revitalization.
SAVE Inc. was initially created with the vision of providing a hospice facility, a place where people with AIDS could live out their final days with dignity. Today we have expanded to serve clients with mental illness and substance abuse as well. Approximately 25% of our clients have HIV/AIDS, and 75% are living with mental illness or substance abuse. Many are actually dual diagnosed and each of SAVE, Inc.'s clients are struggling with issues of self-worth, poverty, and access to resources. Stable, affordable and quality housing is key. 
Impact Statement

Our top accomplishments for the past year include:

In the past year we were able to add case management to our Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Program for the first time.  In the past our Housing Specialists assisted clients as they negotiated the leasing process but due to case loads, were often unable to maintain consistent support past that.  Once a client is leased up and moved into their new home, the Case Manager works with the Housing Specialist to help the resident remain stably housed.  
We have been able to stabilize our staff and have brought our turnover rate down to 15%.   
Our top goals for the upcoming year are: 
  1. Raise unrestricted funds to help fill the gaps of program grants that do not fully cover their administrative expenses.
  2. Continue to expand our Case Management staff in order to keep clients stably housed and address issues before they become a barrier to maintaining housing.
  3. Secure funding to build a new permanent supportive housing facility on our campus.  This facility will contain 50 residential units and provide the wrap-around services that will help the residents remain housed.  
  4. Renovate and re-purpose two buildings on our campus in order to make sure the programs offered through those facilities are the most effective and efficient they can be.
Needs Statement
  1. An increase in general operating support of roughly $10,000 a month to cover general expenses associated with maintaining 9 properties and a staff of over 30.
  2. An increase in Corporate support to offset the decrease in individual giving and allow us to cover our minimal fundraising expenses. SAVE, Inc. currently spends less than 5% of its total revenue on fundraising. Minimal corporate sponsorship would easily cover these costs, allowing individual donors to have a greater impact on client services.  
  3. In-kind donations of landscaping materials and supplies to help upgrade the landscaping surrounding the 9 properties that SAVE, Inc. owns and operates.

For any number of reasons, those living with complex health issues compounded by environmental factors often need a safe, secure place to stay temporarily while they stabilize their life and begin the process of transitioning into permanent homes. 

Whether they are relocating to Kansas City from surrounding states in search of medical expertise and supportive services, fleeing domestic violence situations, or working to escape homelessness – SAVE, Inc. provides a supportive place where lives can be rebuilt. 

Stepping Stones provides 12 months of housing in a fully-furnished studio apartment, as well as financial assistance to help remove existing barriers to permanent housing.  Clients living in Stepping Stones also meet with a Housing Specialist to make and execute a plan to obtain permanent housing. This program is truly the step up that so many need to escape homelessness and stabilize their health.

Short-Term Success Clients and residents choose from a range of housing options that enables them to make choices about the kind of home they want to live in. All individuals and affected family members living in SAVE Inc supported facilities feel like they have a “home.” All persons living in a SAVE Inc supported home report having greater access to healthcare and are better able to manage living with HIV/AIDS.
Long-Term Success Individuals living with HIV/AIDS in the metro area will live in safe, affordable housing, engage in health care and lead healthier lives with dignity.
Program Success Monitored By Client files are maintained which include established client goals. Clients meet with our Supportive Housing Specialist on a monthly basis to create a permanent housing plan, so that at the end of the 12-month period, they are prepared to move onto permanent, stable housing. 
Examples of Program Success SAVE, Inc. served a total of 4 individuals last year on this program. With the addition of the STAIR program, there are only 2 units available for the Stepping Stones program, but the 2 units are always full and help individuals transition successfully onto permanent housing. 

SAVE Home is one of SAVE, Inc.'s seven residential properties, and the only one designed to offer a congregate living environment for clients who are medically unable to live independently.

The founding of SAVE Home in 1986 marked the birth of SAVE, Inc., as volunteers recognized the need for a safe haven for those dying from AIDS. It was the first hospice facility in the State of Missouri specifically for those with HIV/AIDS and today, has transformed from its initial hospice roots into a place of permanence for the socially and medically disadvantaged who need the most support to regain their strength and transition into independent living.

Short-Term Success Improved healthcare and a dignified living situation are the most immediate goals of our SAVE Home program. Many individuals come to SAVE Home in such dire conditions that they cannot see a future beyond mere weeks or months. But through the 24-hour supportive care they receive, residents slowly regain their health and their hope for the future. They are able to effectively and efficiently take their medications, they have the mental and emotional support of our compassionate staff, and most importantly, they regain a sense of self. Residents are in a warm environment where they can be nurtured without fear of discrimination or intolerance.
Long-Term Success SAVE Home is a haven for those who are need of the most care and support. Day by day, SAVE Home clients work to build their strength and regain control of their healthcare situation. From needing 24 support to being able to live in their own independent living situation is the goal of our SAVE Home program.
Program Success Monitored By Our SAVE Home Manager and staff keep daily reports on the healthcare situation of all residents. They are always on hand to manage issues that may arise, be it health-related or issues of a social nature. A system to file grievances is in place so that residents always feel empowered to manage whatever situation may arise. Residents work closely with their Case Worker and with our SAVE Home manager to make any necessary changes. In many cases this involves the SAVE Home Manager working hard to find a more independent living situation after a resident's health has improved to such a point as to warrant that move.
Examples of Program Success Positive progress is clearly evident when residents feel their healthcare has improved to a point where they can move into a more independent living situation. Because our other SAVE Inc. properties function as such, many residents chose to stay in the SAVE umbrella, but live on one of these more independent properties. This is the clearest signal that the supportive system at SAVE Home is successful. There are also successes evident within the house itself, as a few residents chose to stay for long periods of time, even after their health has improved. They feel empowered and supported at SAVE Home; finding a sense of belonging & family that they wanted to hold on to. "I'm appreciative especially for SAVE Inc., for its people who give others respect and dignity often in the midst of despair, fear, or pain." SAVE Home Resident since 2004.  SAVE Home provided permanent, supportive housing for 13 individuals last year. 

The Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Program offers 850 rental vouchers to socially and medically disadvantaged individuals and families so that they may attain and maintain safe and stable permanent housing.  

Currently, SAVE, Inc. collaborates with Johnson County, KS, the City of Kansas City, MO, the MO Department of Mental Health, and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to offer 5 different rental assistance voucher programs.  Clients on these programs have the freedom to live anywhere in the 15-county Kansas City Metro Area - in both Kansas and Missouri - that is convenient and comfortable for them.

Short-Term Success Many individuals on this program suffer from alcohol or substance abuse illnesses and their ability to regularly seek & attend counseling/healthcare sessions is a great goal of this program. Through housing, individuals are able to focus on managing their pre-existing illness, as well as on the dangers of their at-risk behavior. Stable housing makes the choice to continue their at-risk behavior a true CHOICE and not a necessity. Such empowerment means more awareness, smarter decisions, and a significantly higher HIV/AIDS Prevention rate.  SAVE, Inc. also hopes to see that people entering into housing can maintain their housing after one year.  Last year, 94% of clients that SAVE, Inc. housed on the TBRA program successfully maintained their housing or exited to other permanent housing programs. 
Long-Term Success It is the goal of this program to lift the most vulnerable people out of poverty.  Individuals and families who are low income and battling HIV/AIDS, mental illness and/or a substance abuse disorder have an extremely difficult time accessing care,a s well as other social supports if they are homeless.  SAVE, Inc. seeks to provide a permanent housing safety net to help these individuals and families refocus on improving their health and other social determinants so that they may have a higher quality of life.  
Program Success Monitored By All client files are managed individually by housing assistance specialists who take the time to evaluate each client's situation and work to find the best housing solution. These housing specialists have resources that they share with the clients and their case workers to help them manage their pre-existing illness. They work with all parties to find appropriate housing and conduct yearly inspections to ensure that all properties meet HUD standards. This frequent interaction and client-centered approach to this housing program means that clients have a steady support throughout the entire time they are on the program. Should they need more or less support, the housing specialist knows their individual case and can adjust accordingly. An accurate database, including detailed reports of all interactions, is diligently maintained so all information is current and readily available. There is also an upfront grievance and appeal process to empower the client to manage any situation.
Examples of Program Success This past year, over 884 individuals and families that were formerly homeless or unstably housed, now have a home. This includes 461 youth under the age of 18. Having a home allows them to address other social determinents of health, reduces use of emergency rooms for primary care, increases access and maintenance in care and brings stability to the entire household.

Our Community Campus is comprised of 7 residential properties throughout the Midtown Kansas City area with 59 independent units of permanent housing.

SAVE, Inc. serves as the landlord for all tenants and residents are free to be as involved as they would like in community activities. The SAVE, Inc. Community Campus gives those who are battling the dual crises of homelessness and a disability a safe, supportive place to come home to.

Short-Term Success Individuals truly blossom as residents of one of our 7 properties. They know they have a landlord sympathetic to their condition and their situation and we work with them to meet their needs both financially, physically, and mentally. Our residents show improvements in their current health and a much improved ability to manage their medication regime, as well as any tertiary complications. They develop a strong sense of self, focus, and determination. They are able to secure employment if desired, maintain healthy personal relationships, and develop a sense of dignity and independence by managing their own apartment. 
Long-Term Success The SAVE Inc. community campus was established to meet the needs of those living in the community battling HIV/AIDS, mental illness and substance abuse disorders. Our goal is to be a safe haven, free of discrimination and intolerance, to all those who need our services. Through this community campus, we strive to empower our residents to live stable and healthy lives full of dignity and hope for the future.
Program Success Monitored By Individuals have the freedom to be as involved or independent as they'd like. Our offices are located on campus as well, so all housing and maintenance staff are available to assist with any needs that may arise or just provide a helpful ear. Each resident goes through a yearly assessment process with our Property Manager and has immediate access to our Supportive Housing Specialist who can link our clients to the social services or care services they need. 
Examples of Program Success Clients on the community campus program have the comfort of knowing their neighbors are sympathetic and supportive of their situation, which can improve our clients' mental state. Several clients living on our properties serve as each others power of attorney or are the point of contact for emergencies. Many of our clients are able to gain income while living on our properties or are able to better manage their disabilities. A great example of program success is a client who has been clean and sober for 2 years since moving into SAVE's properties and is now going back to school to become an alcohol abuse counselor. 
Description Due to the complex health issues that a socially or medically disadvantaged individual or family may face, SAVE, Inc. realizes that many folks are unable to financially sustain safe, stable housing during times of extreme health crises.

Through the Rental Assistance Due to Medical Crisis Program, SAVE, Inc. can temporarily pick up the bills that may otherwise push families into poverty and homelessness during periods where working may become impossible due to illness.  This program provides a safety net for those battling a chronic disability, preventing them from sliding into homelessness due to temporary setbacks and allowing them to live with dignity and recover without the devastation that can be delivered due to prolonged illness.
Category Housing, General/Other Transitional Housing
Population Served People/Families with of People with Disabilities, Homeless
Short-Term Success Individuals on the Health through Housing Stability Program first and foremost are able to secure permanent housing in a location & environment that best suits them. They transition immediately from homesslessness to stable housing and they have the support of our housing assistance specialist. Once stabily housed, clients on this program are able to spend their energy managing their disease and their medications. Not only do we see increased healthcare once these individuals are stabily housed, but an increase in general awareness and education about their HIV status. They are able to make smarter decisions about other aspects of their lifestyle because they are not worried about a place to stay for the night. The options open to them are much more viable to maintaining a healthy condition.
Long-Term Success Housing stability is the first step in helping those suffering the dual trials of homelessness and HIV/IADS. Through this housing assistance program, individuals are able to live in an environment that works for them and focus on managing their disease and medication regimen. The long-term goal is to ensure those living with HIV have the ability to effecitvely manage their health and live their lives full of hope and dignity.
Program Success Monitored By Our housing specialist for this program conducts in-depth interviews with any clients willing to share. Never are clients forced to give more information than is necessary to secure housing, but when they chose to share, that information becomes a valuable tool for this program. Many clients have said that housing allows them to get their health back on track, feel a sense of pride, and function as regular member of society able to entertain guests or build friendships. In addition to the yearly check-ups, our housing assistance specialist is available as a resource for other social services and works extremely close with all case workers to monitor client housing situations. Upfront grievance and appeal processes are explained to all clients so they are empowered to manage any situation that may arise with their housing assistance voucher.
Examples of Program Success The simple reality is that individuals living with HIV/AIDS while simultaneously struggling with housing have a substantially reduced life expectancy and an increased likelihood to infect others. The statistics are stunningly clear, homelessness and HIV/AIDS are causal and interwoven. At any given time up to 16% of all persons with HIV in a community are homeless, and the death rate amongst these individuals who are concurrently HIV positive and homeless is five times higher than housed people with HIV. Furthermore, stable housing is the cornerstone of HIV/AIDS treatment. Homeless persons living with HIV/AIDS are 3 times more likely to be without medical care than those with stable housing. In short, this program allows individuals to manage their disease, maintain access to medications and care, and reduces HIV transmission. Thus, the ultimate result is clients living on our campus live longer, healthier lives.
Description SAVE, Inc. provides emergency assistance funds to help individuals and families struggling with complex medical issues pay rent, mortgage or utility bills.

Emergency Assistance can help prevent a family - who is otherwise living in safe, stable housing - from losing their housing due to a temporary monetary hardship. 

This program is a sign of SAVE, Inc.'s proactive approach to addressing homelessness and our efforts to mitigate the number of families driven into the dire circumstance of homelessness due to an economic crisis, high energy costs, or temporary fiscal hardship.

Category Housing, General/Other Housing Expense Assistance
Population Served People/Families of People with HIV/AIDS
Short-Term Success Each program year, SAVE, Inc. hopes to ensure that every person living with HIV/AIDS in Kansas City has the ability to access stable housing. Emergency assistance is crucial to ensuring that old utility bills do not become a barrier on top of the hardship of paying monthly rent, etc. 
Long-Term Success SAVE, Inc.'s Emergency Assistance Program is designed to help clients break down barriers to securing permanent, stable housing.  The long-term goal is to ensure that minor barriers such as inability to produce a security deposit, pay past-due utility bills or secure a birth certificate or other form of ID are non-existent - so that every individual who is capable of paying rent can access stable housing. 
Program Success Monitored By SAVE, Inc. tracks all recipients of our emergency assistance in MAACLink. All clients present to SAVE a written plan of how the one-time assistance will help them access stable housing.  Because clients are in MAACLink, SAVE, Inc. is able to see if they are still stably housed after one year. 
Examples of Program Success The emergency assistance program has anecdotal success stories from clients who have been able to access housing after receiving deposit payments, utility payments and help acquiring IDs. 

SAVE, Inc. funds a Transitional Housing for Addiction Recovery program for those living with HIV/AIDS and struggling with substance abuse issues while they seek help in addiction recovery. 

SAVE, Inc. understands that overcoming substance abuse under any circumstances is exceedingly difficult - and doing so while living in or on the precipice of homelessness is nearly impossible. 

This program is truly a path back to health: a bridge to new beginnings and a doorway to a renewed focus on managing ones HIV, reducing risk behaviors, and leading a life of hope.

Population Served Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers
Short-Term Success By the end of each program year, SAVE, Inc. hopes to see that all clients supported in the THAR Program are either still able to support themselves in recovery or able to support themselves in stable housing.  SAVE, Inc. also hopes to see that clients are managing their HIV/AIDS illness and practicing safe needle methods, if applicable. 
Long-Term Success Ultimately, SAVE, Inc. hopes the Transitional Housing for Addiction Recovery (THAR) program will allow clients battling HIV/AIDS and a substance abuse disorder the proper time to fully address their illness and put them on the path to ultimate recovery and health. 
Program Success Monitored By SAVE, Inc. partners with Benilde Hall to support the clients in the THAR program and relies on the staff at Benilde Hall to provide updates and outcomes on our clients. 
Examples of Program Success Examples of program success include the transition of several SAVE, Inc. clients from Benilde Hall to our Community Campus, where they continue to manage their substance abuse disorders and their HIV/AIDS diagnosis. Maintaining housing on our properties means that the client is recognizing the need for support, embracing the idea of permanent, independent housing with traditional rent/landlord rules and therefore headed in the right direction for recovery. 
Description SAVE, Inc. and Truman Behavioral Health have partnered to provide transitional housing for individuals who are low income and battling a mental illness and/or substance abuse disorder.  Truman provides the intensive case management, while SAVE, Inc. provides daily care and support to help clients manage their medications, learn to prepare meals and increase their ability to live independently.  
Category Housing, General/Other Transitional Housing
Population Served People/Families with of People with Disabilities
Short-Term Success SAVE, Inc. hopes that short-term success includes a substantial increase in adherence to medications, learning basic cooking, cleaning and laundry skills, and an increased ability to live independently for long periods of time. SAVE, Inc. also hopes that clients will learn how to navigate relationships so that they can better communicate with support systems, case managers, doctors and potential landlords. 
Long-Term Success The ultimate goal of the STAIR program is to give clients who have traditionally had trouble maintaining independence due to their mental, behavioral or developmental disability the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to live on their own and to successfully transition on to a permanent housing program where they can live with dignity. 
Program Success Monitored By Program success is monitored via daily progress reports from SAVE, Inc. staff who work the STAIR program. These progress reports are sent to Truman Behavioral Health so that their case manager is aware of daily activities and to help recognize growth or other patterns of success. SAVE, Inc. hopes to see progress in these reports that indicate clients can transition onto a more independent living situation. 
Examples of Program Success A great example of STAIR program success is a client named 'John'. (Name changed for confidentiality)  John is a schizophrenic and had lived the bulk of his adult life in a residential care facility with minimal access to his income, as well as minimal opportunities to learn to take care of himself. Given the support of the STAIR program and John's willingness to learn and absorb information, he is now working part time and has learned to prepare basic meals in his apartment, as well as tracks his medication better.  John is soon to be transitioning onto SAVE, Inc.'s community campus where he can live close to the supports of SAVE, Inc. staff but gain an even greater level of independence. 
CEO Comments SAVE Inc.’s programs have been designed to meet a myriad of housing needs that socially or medically disadvantaged individuals or families may require to stabilize their lives. The continuum of housing services offered at SAVE, Inc. provide a cornerstone for individuals to access life saving medical care. Without this stable housing, individuals struggling with the dual crises of homelessness and a disability have very little chance of rebuilding their lives.

CEO Comments SAVE, Inc. is being asked by many of its service partners in the region to partner on additional housing programs for our mutual clients. In order to do so and to meet the rising need while still offering high quality service, SAVE, Inc. needs to expand our capacity, both in terms of personnel and space.  Our existing space is maxed out and we are looking for creative ways to add administrative capacities so that we can say 'yes' to these partners and continue to grow our housing continuum. In the next 12 months, SAVE, Inc. hopes to build on our existing programs and create new housing opportunities for those individuals and families struggling with the dual crises of homelessness and a disability in our community.

Organization Comments
While SAVE, Inc. has been financially stable throughout its long history, it has also seen a drastic increase in need for housing services in our community and is currently operating within a federal funding environment that is inconsistent at best. Additionally, a recently broadened mission of providing housing resources for both those with HIV/AIDS, as well as those with mental illness and substance abuse resulted in the need for increased staffing to accommodate the increased services.
Our state and local government funding partners have been outstanding at recognizing the importance of safe, stable housing for the most vulnerable among us, however the across-the-board federal budgets are disproportionately affecting those who have few other safety nets.   Additionally, the federal government again reduced the fair market rent amount for the housing vouchers we process. This reduction, in addition to burdening our clients, means a smaller percentage in administrative reimbursement for SAVE, Inc. to operate with. SAVE, Inc. currently gives 87 cents of every dollar to client programs and is seeking to diversify our private funding so that we can continue to operate so efficiently and maximize governmental support. 
Additionally, SAVE, Inc. is continuously seeking out new funding and service partnerships that can generate unrestricted revenue for the agency that is critical to our ability to be flexible in creating programs to meet the growing need.
