CHARISM - Community Outreach VISTA
CHARISM has been building stronger neighborhoods by building stronger people in Fargo, ND since 1994. We are able to work towards achieving this by providing educational and enriching out of school time programming for low income children, mentorship programs to reengage at risk youth with their education, provide basic necessities and fight food insecurity through our family grocery assistance program, and provide community resource connection supports to families in need. At CHARISM – Kids excel. Youth get on track, Families flourish The overall goal of the project is to increase our organizational capacity so we are able to develop stronger recognition and awareness within our community. A phrase we have been using is “Deepening our roots to expand our reach”. The intended result of this project is to be able to develop additional partnerships with local businesses and organizations to better serve our participants. Also to gain a better understanding of the needs within the community and strive towards meeting those needs.
