Call Details

What We'd Like To Talk About
Project topic
I'd like strategic advice on using Salesforce to track clients in different programs over time and report varying outcomes to funders.
Additional Context

We paid a consultant to help us tailor Salesforce somewhat, and then worked with a Catchafire volunteer to brand Saleforce and make it mobile, but now I am wondering whether our hopes to use Salesforce to both track all clients and collect data in different programs and produce reports is just too much. I'd also like feedback about whether this is something a volunteer is likely to do for us.

"Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.

About The Org

Our Mission

The Centerforce mission is to support, educate, and advocate for individuals, families, and communities impacted by incarceration.

What We Do

Centerforce is a California-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting, educating, and advocating for individuals, families, and communities impacted by incarceration. For over 30 years, Centerforce has been a national leader in providing groundbreaking, evidence-based programs to incarcerated people and their loved-ones. In fact, Centerforce is one of few agencies in the U.S. to offer a continuum of transformative services during incarceration, reentry and after release.

Centerforce's work began in 1972 by establishing a visitors' center at San Quentin State Prison. Centerforce went on to establish visitors' centers at all California state prisons, and successfully lobbied the State Legislature to providing ongoing funding for these centers.

We pursue our mission by:
- Developing and delivering comprehensive and effective client-centered services to currently and formerly incarcerated individuals and their families.
- Designing and implementing programs that foster constructive experiences during incarceration, promote successful re-entry, and decrease re-incarceration.
- Researching, evaluating, and sharing innovative and current best program practices.
- Collaborating with key stakeholders, including corrections, to achieve our goals.
- Creating awareness and shaping the debate around incarceration and its effects.
