The Assisi Foundation’s implementation of Transition to Success truly showcases the social enterprise at the heart of the TTS methodology. When a social worker at a Memphis-area children’s social service organization heard about TTS, she heeded Dr. Wilson’s call to action and contacted the Assisi Foundation of Memphis’ Executive Director, Dr. Jan Young, and introduced her to TTS.

Dr. Young’s interest led the Assisi Foundation to host a community forum with Dr. Wilson, which led to a TTS training. Through this initial training, the United Way of Mid-South became of aware TTS, which led to their own implementation. The Assisi Foundation’s training incorporated Memphis-area health, human service, educational, government and faith-based organizations, working together to address the cycle of poverty and the connective issues diverse organizations face in addressing, complex social issues with a collaborative approach. Today, in Memphis, more than 40 organizations have implemented TTS.

Child and Family Service
 

Child & Family Service has partnered with Transition to Success to pilot a national model in Hawaii that treats poverty as a diagnosis affecting a family rather than a character flaw.

Over the past year Child & Family Service has partnered with Transition to Success to pilot a national model in Hawaii that treats poverty as a diagnosis affecting a family rather than a character flaw. Through our Family Centers on Maui and Kauai, Child & Family Service worked with families to map their dreams and help them create a path to get there. Youth who said they wanted to become NBA basketball players were not discouraged, but rather helped to put in motion the pieces to get there, such as a good education, which would motivate them to do well in school and get them on the path to confidence, achievement and self-sufficiency.

The success of the program is predicated on setting goals and dreams for family members, but bringing those dreams to fruition requires the collaboration of many community partners. On Maui and Kauai we partnered with more than 15 agencies, businesses and organizations who could provide important pieces to the puzzle, such as basic needs, literacy, getting an education (including GED and higher education for parents), financial literacy and volunteerism, job training and placement, all key components for self-sufficiency.

We are collecting data to measure the effectiveness of this pilot and so far the results are promising, with 80% of participating families meeting at least two of their stated goals during the first year.
