We are a Nonprofit Outreach Seeking Philanthropic Funding from the General Public or Private Foundations anywhere. STA does not seek or receive any Federal funding in order to remain neutral and productive.
We are Straight Ahead Outreach-Taking Back Your Life Inc. (STA) an IRS registered 501c3 Nonprofit Public Charity Mobile Crisis Outreach.
STA is looking to expand.
We are different….very different. We are also small and intense.
We are looking for most likely a different….very different Philanthropist or group of Philanthropists and or Private Foundations.
STA does what ever it takes to prevent and or end homelessness for someone individual or families, especially if we have the funds and equipment to do so. For as long as it takes, given the opportunity.
STA is not a program….it is a Process.
STA helps Where Ever We Are, Where Ever We Can. We do What Ever It Takes. Not what others say to do, but rather what Jesus and His Father require and direct us to do. Like Families should be doing. Like it was meant to be and designed to be by our Father God Jehovah and His Son Jesus Christ.
You will have a difficult, very difficult time finding another organization who does what we do in the way that we do it.
Browse around our website, read a number of the stories/blogs and pages and you should learn quite a bit about us i hope.
The situation and the needs or wants in regards to expansion
Mobile Crisis Outreach Vehicle: STA is seeking funding for a replacement Mobile Crisis Outreach van equipped properly so we may reach those in need, your Lost Sheep dear Jesus more efficiently as our current 1995 Chevrolet Mobile Crisis Outreach cargo van has over 250,000 miles on it and pushing its limits….We are looking to obtain a unit large enough to contain one shower, one bathroom, washer/dryer, an area to heat up food items, and a small resting/interviewing area. Most likely a used tool truck we can adapt or renovate as the vehicle needs to handle well and be maneuverable in a number of different situations.
Small Facility: STA is seeking funding for a building in Clearwater, FL to obtain, lease or use on a donated basis, where we may install 2 showers, 4 washers and dryers, a small kitchen, a small office, a thrift store and a resting place. This would be a closed door facility except for the Thrift Store, for use with those we are specifically assisting not for a place to loiter. The laundry, showers and resting place would only be for those we are assisting that we ourselves bring there.
Mobile Ready Computers (4): STA is seeking funds for 4 new mobile ready computers as we are 100% mobile at this time and our current computers are laptops from 2005 and do not have much capacity to them. Two of the computers would be used for our clients use, for locating housing, potential jobs and more. We do not need and are not seeking the most expensive, simply something appropriate for our needs. Our needs are very reasonable.
High Volume Color Printer: STA is seeking funding for a high volume color printer. This would be used for many different facets including printing our STA business cards, Project Clean-Up cards and paperwork documents for those we assist.
Operating Funds: STA is seeking operating Funds to provide our services uninterrupted for one year in order to prevent the up and down roller coaster each month. This may be done on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Wages (for 2): No one at STA has ever received a wage for the work we do. We would like to change that.
Myself, Lance Greene/Founder of STA, has done this work both as an individual since 1985 (other then the years 2001-9/2003 when i took a break) and since 2007 as Founder/CEO/Senior Case Manager of STA, without a wage and spending much of my own personal funds over the years. Almost 28 years. My wage if obtained would be $39,400.00 per year including healthcare coverage. Please keep in mind we make ourselves available up to and including 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. It would not increase until and if STA ever became a $5 Million corporation. That along with future wage restrictions and guidelines is in writing to the IRS within our 501c3 certification.
The same wages would apply to our Vice President, Pat Mishler. This is also in writing to the IRS. Since 2007 she has used a great deal of her own personal funds to fund STA, and continues to do so to this day. She is my fiance, i chose to call her my wife…ten years running…:-))!
