Impact Report No. 15: New Day For Children

NAME OF MINISTRY:

New Day for Children

NAME OF MINISTRY CONTACT:

Sharon Wood

DESCRIPTION OF MINISTRY:

New Day provides long-term residential restorative care and education to American minor girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking. The organization partners with a boarding school in a remote Northern California location. New Day pays all costs to help girls restore their stolen childhood and give them a future. The program is nine years old, so it has a solid track record. About 40 percent of New day’s clients return home and 40 percent graduate from high school—with many continuing to college. New Day has served 83 girls, who reside there an average of 15 months.

THE BIG QUESTION:

How does New Day for Children ideally expand locations in a sustainable manner to serve a growing client set of girls rescued from sex trafficking?

IDEATION SESSION:

Bob Garrett facilitated the Ideation and is serving as coach. Nine people participated in the Ideation.

After a deep dive into the issues, a viable growth strategy included expanding the current facility and adding additional homes.

The group also suggested focusing on the staffing puzzle as it is the hardest piece to fill in a growth strategy. It was recommended that New Day create a recruiting pitch speech for each major position, stating why working for New Day would be a valuable career.
