Move to PROSPER is an innovative nonprofit who focuses on improving life outcomes for children and their mothers in Central Ohio by creating opportunities for residential and financial stability. Their person-centered care model was developed through a partnership between The Ohio State University’s City and Regional Planning Program, community partners, and feedback from individuals in the community. Move to PROSPER makes affordable rental housing available to single moms in neighborhoods that offer access to opportunities, such as higher-resourced schools, safer neighborhoods, and employment. Life coaches assist program participants in increasing their personal, educational, health, and employment stability.
Move to PROSPER uses SureImpact to simplify the process for measuring individual and family life outcomes, and to prove they are better off as a result of their programming. “Healthy housing in a safe neighborhood decreases stress for mothers and children and enables them to create a foundation of success,” said Amy Klaben, Move to PROSPER co-founder and CEO. “The insights available in SureImpact enable us to understand and communicate to our donors and community stakeholders about participant improvements in areas such as health, child development, financial security, employment stability, and income.”
