  • MUSKEGON - OCEANA COMMUNITY ACTION PARTNERSHIP, INC. IN
  • DEAR FRIENDS, THE YEAR HAS COME TO A CLOSE AND AS YOU ALL KNOW, THE DOWNTURNED ECONOMY HAS IMPACTED OUR AGENCY GREATLY. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE AND FAMILIES IN MUSKEGON AND OCEANA COUNTIES WITH HUGE BASIC NEEDS DUE TO LOSS OF JOBS AND INCOME. OUR MISSION IS TO SERVE THOSE PERSONS WHERE POSSIBLE. 2009 WAS A VERY SPECIAL YEAR FOR MOCAP WITH REGARD TO A SPECIAL FUNDING SOURCE. WE RECEIVED A GRANT FROM THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY (DOE) WEATHERIZATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM IN THE AMOUNT OF SIX MILLION DOLLARS; MAKING MOCAP’S CURRENT FISCAL BUDGET MORE THAN $7 MILLION DOLLARS. THE DOE GRANT WILL BE USED FOR WEATHERIZATION OF HOMES IN MUSKEGON AND OCEANA COUNTIES. WE HAVE INCREASED OUR STAFF TO COVER THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, KENNETH SHELTON, HAS LED OUR BOARD THROUGH THE NEEDED STEPS TO ACCOMPLISH A LOT DURING THE PAST YEAR AND HIS DIRECTION HAS BEEN INVALUABLE. NEXT YEAR WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK ON THE PROGRAMS WE HAVE IN PLACE AND YOU CAN READ ABOUT THEM THROUGHOUT THIS REPORT. WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITIES BY OFFERING HOPE, GIVING VOICE, AND BUILDING DREAMS. WE HAD OUR 4TH ANNUAL YOUTH EMPOWERMENT RALLY IN 2009, AND THIS INVESTMENT IN THE YOUTH OF OUR COMMUNITIES IS VERY WORTHWHILE. WHEN A THEATER FULL OF TEENAGERS IS SILENT AND LISTENING TO THE EXPERIENCES OF SOMEONE WHO HAS OVERCOME ADVERSITY IT IS EXCITING. THE YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM HAS BEEN VERY REWARDING, BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE ATTENDEES ARE “GETTING IT.” THANK YOUR TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR BUSY SCHEDULES TO ATTEND MEETINGS AND KEEP THE OPERATIONS GOING. THANK YOU ALSO TO OUR STAFF, VOLUNTEERS AND ALL OF OUR OTHER SUPPORTERS. WITHOUT ALL OF YOU, THIS AGENCY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GO FORWARD. CORDIALLY, EVELYN KOLBE EVELYN KOLBE KENNETH R. SHELTON, SR. BOARD CHAIR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND CEO
  • One lean green Weatherization Team! Not only has our weatherization department ramped up production on weatherizing homes for home owners in 2009 there was a hugh increase in the number of renter occupied homes that got weatherized throughout the year. Thanks to all of the news coverage and publicity recieved in reference to the Stimulus Plan and AARA funds we’ve experienced a non- stop influx of calls for energy efficientcy services. MOCAP staff have used this opportunity to educate more people on the importance of energy efficientcy. Our weatherization department was transformed under the leadership of Mr. Ed Elsey, Assistant Director of Energy Services. There were a slew of new regulations and requirements to wade through for the entire weatherization team and they have been performing with flying colors. Even our contractors had to undergo extensive training in order to be in compliance with new laws and we are glad that each of them and their teams have continued to partner with us to forge through to achieve greater results for the community at large. Our agency is truely evolving into one lean environmentally friendly machine. In house recycling of everything from ink and toner, to light bulbs, batteries, plastics and card board has been taking place at the administrative office. We feel that each of us must lead by example. MOCAP is proud to show that the agency is committed to the health and renewal of our environment.
  • SENIOR PROJECT FRESH The Senior Project FRESH program has been a big hit now for 3 years. Program participants are delighted each spring to find out that the program will be available to those who are eligible within our service area of Muskegon and Oceana Counties. Over 550 seniors living in Muskegon and Oceana Counties received food vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at area farmers markets. The average dollar value of vouchers received by each participant was $40.00. MOCAP reflected excellent redemtion rates for the prior year. We are proud to report outstanding redemption rates. This program reached even more volnerable seniors thanks to Senior Resources of West Michigan (SRWMI), an Area Agency on Aging, who partnered with MOCAP during the 2009 fiscal year. Thanks to Ms. Sherri King, MS our Health and Wellness Specialist at the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging new funding is sought out and made available to help stretch locally raised dollars in a effort to continue expanding the program throughout our service area and increase assistance to each client.

More than 800 applications were taken at our action centers. Many of these clients continue to receive services each month. The benefits of Safelinks Wireless are truely invaluable.

The entire team has worked with true dedication during this time of transition and growth. By having extensive knowledge of our demographics and each of the communities that we service we have been able to identify the need to relocate one of our action centers to a larger more easily accessible location and also remodel another action center allowing clients to receive assistance without having to travel long distances eliminating a transportation barrier. Through a SWOT examination we were able to determine where we needed additional core personnel and how to restructure current personnel in order to provide the highest quality of service to our clients. AARA funds are certainly being put to good use because Muskegon and Oceana counties residence have come to realize that Weatherization Works & Saves Green. These individuals and families are eager to participate in our programming.
