The Father's Heart Foundation Project Summary

The Mission The Father's Heart Foundation is a compassion organization, specializing in relief, local outreach events, and long-term empowerment programs. Our vision is to create significant improvement in the quality of life for people who are often neglected. Our approach is to meet the physical needs, and then empower people with the skills and resources to live sustainable lives. We are committed to the restoration, rebuilding, and recovery of individual lives, families, communities, and the overall health of our nation. Our organization seeks to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to needy youth, homeless and hungry, prisoners, elderly and disabled seniors, unemployed fathers, single mothers and vulnerable children living in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area and surrounding cities, without distinction of gender, race, creed, religion or color. By providing assistance and advocacy for people in financial and emotional crisis, and tailoring our development programs to meet their needs, our organization will stabilize our clients' situations, then help them move toward achieving the highest possible degree of self-sufficiency and further away from economic hardship.

Ensuring our organization understands the necessity of Project Management in both business and technology initiatives and how those skills underpin our mission.

Help develop an organization that is aligned with a Business Strategy along with the skills to create a responsive, growing team to guide our efforts. Focus on the application of Technology as a means to achieve success, not try to use it as a way around the fundamental best practices of business. Understand that Governance comes in many forms, be it regulations from external bodies or internally from organization guidelines, and that governance frameworks can be used to our advantage. Assigning the appropriate importance to Leadership in the organization and how it can make or break our chances for success.

The responsibility of this Executive Management team is not only to recruit leaders, workers and volunteers, but to make them more capable, more skilled and able to tackle the next challenge on their own through ongoing support and training. Hope City For Human Relief and Rebuilding A team of professionals with a successful track record of large commercial projects will be contracted to supervise, design and restore/construct a 100,000 square foot center that will bring hope, relief, restoration and safety to people, families, and the community at large. The community center will be a mall of sorts that provides safety, care and developmental activities for children while their parents take advantage of services and programs that will help them recover, and restore them back into society as productive and contributing individuals. The Hope Center will operate during the day and night. Every program within the Hope Center will work collaboratively towards the same goal and that is to insure wholeness to every person that is helped. The following comprise the components of the Hope Center: • • • • Administrative Offices Retail Type Store Fronts Daycare Pre-School

Social Service Administration The administrative engine from which all of our services to the community originate is our Social Services Agency. This office will employ a staff of caring and compassionate workers. Their purpose is to interview, assess and qualify every applicant to determine which combination of services from our menu of programs will best benefit the person in need of assistance while keeping the overall goal of strengthening the economic, and social wellbeing of our community. Social Services will also collaborate with the community and similar mission-driven organizations as needed. The following are some of the programs which will be available: • • • • • • • • Housing Assistance for People with Diverse Needs Food, Water and Clothing Acquisition Community Re-Entry & Integration Career Development & Technological Training Life Skills Education Resources Vocational and Job Skills Transitional Living Assistance

Community Rehabilitation The collapse of the residential real estate market in the United States, which began more than 18 months ago, has lead to an economic crisis unprecedented in modern history. According to the latest statistics from, “A total of 3,157,806 foreclosure filings — default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions — were reported on 2,330,483 U.S. properties during 2008, an 81 percent increase in total properties from 2007 and a 225 percent increase in total properties from 2006”. With credit tight, massive job losses and consumer spending virtually paralyzed, there is no easy path to revitalizing these properties. This massive over-supply has a doubly disastrous effect. First, it depresses the value of occupied properties. The higher the over-supply in any one community, the lower prices fall. The second effect is that it decreases the appetite for further risk in development and drives down future demand for properties along with the goods and services this activity spurs. The net effect is a cascade of canceled contracts and layoffs all the way down the supply chain directly back to the consumer, be it a company or a family. Simply put, at the time of this project research, there is a 9.5 month supply of unsold homes throughout the United States. A healthy economy consistently maintains a 3 to 4 month supply of unsold homes. Massive tracts of residential developments stand abandoned and repossessed by mortgage companies and banks now on the verge of collapse. Commercial real estate, while not in this situation yet, is soon forecast to feel the effect of this “economic tsunami”.

This cycle must be broken to effectively reduce the inventory of homes and offices currently vacant. Since market forces are unlikely to reduce this inventory in time to prevent or reverse significant negative economic consequences, a more proactive approach can and should be taken. Our Real Estate acquisition division proposes to lead to a massive reduction in this inventory while simultaneously providing hope and housing to families that have become homeless due to loss of job, disability, foreclosure and other reasons. This project, while ambitious, does not propose an all-encompassing solution to the crisis. It does suggest a series of actions and programs meant to address the crisis and train up productive members within society. This effort has the potential of setting the foundation for future economic stability. How Will This Program Work? When enacted and managed properly, a program will be established that is designed to systematically reduce abandoned or devalued commercial and residential properties and buy up these toxic assets. It will need to be administered and monitored at the executive level. This project will accomplish the following goals: 1. Housing sub-divisions that will provide a safe community for homeless families in need of temporary relief. 2. Commercial buildings for needy elderly people, those in need of treatment and student dorms

Evaluation The Father's Heart Foundation will provide our donor with an annual report detailing the number of people who received assistance and skills training. This report will include a financial report, as well as a summary of the Foundation's follow-up efforts to determine the success that our efforts are having on the community. The Father's Heart Foundation was formed to encourage and protect faithful stewardship for the generous funding agencies and individuals who do not have the time to inspect the various aspects of a recipient organization. At Father’s Heart, strict compliance is ensured with the Internal Revenue Code, as well as federal, and state regulations. While upholding the highest level of accountability, our Development Executives maintain ongoing relationships with each individual donor or agency representative. Careful attention and supervision is given to every incoming contribution assuring that it is properly distributed to the

need it was intended for. By the same token, every outgoing disbursement has to be authorized, and every organization qualified. The Father's Heart field-audits and inspects agency activities from time to time ensuring that the bottom line results in changed lives. Our foundation will not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, gender, or national origin. Conclusion In conclusion, this proposal is designed to provide an approach to the current challenges facing our nation's cities and be used as a model in the Phoenix metropolitan area for future development of programs throughout the United States and the world. The Father's Heart Foundation is committed to meeting this need. We estimate about $15M for the land, $41M for the site facilities, $25M for investing to support the ongoing operations of the project, and 19M for a housing subdivision, dormitory building for interns, senior assistance living, baseball, soccer/football fields, charity fund, salaries, operational expenses for several years, marketing, unexpected building and immediate expansion expenses. The return on an investment of $100,000,000 will be seen in the increased number of those who have the greatest need and the least resources begin their life of sustainable productivity and contribution to their families and community and undo the cycle of destruction that has been caused by poverty.
