Rachel created a database of community resources for the Youth & Family Services division of Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland (BGCP). This will streamline the resource referral process and allow families to access the resources online through BGCP’s website.
Interviewed YFS staff members at each Club site to identify known resources along with needs of their Club members and families
Surveyed the community to determine the resources they access, what kind of resources they would like to know about, what additional resources they thought BGCP should offer, and how they prefer to find out about new resources
Researched and recorded agencies offering resources identified as priorities and organized for staff to access
Created webpage with information about YFS that listed resources available at each Club site, as well as external resources available to each community
Approx. 5,000 youth each year
