DCTS Internal Strategic Organizational Goals :
Davidson County Transitional Services Incorporated, also operating as DC Transitional Services, was established in March 2013. In June 2013, the Human Services and Consulting Agency (formerly called Crisis Intervention & Referral Agency), located in the Big Chair City of Thomasville, NC, was incorporated by the North Carolina Secretary of State. DCTS is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization and has been tax-exempt since June 11, 2013.
During the first years of operation, DCTS Inc. has been mainly focused on how to help our clients and their families within the community .Like many nonprofits, DCTS has been doing more with a little less within our agency, in collaboration with the CEO and Board of Directors. DCTS has made some tough decisions already; we know that more will emerge in the future. Our strategies are related not only to cost containment and productivity but also to what support is likely in the future. As a working team, the DCTS stakeholders has made decisions based on the long-term mission priorities and the sustainability of this quality agency. DCTS volunteers will continue to deliver services with the same commitment to the quality those we serve have come to expect.
At DCTS, we believe oppression is a societal blight that requires a broad societal response. Since such a response requires input from all sectors of society, DCTS is committed to engaging the wisdom and resources of community partners in our efforts to modify the social beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes that perpetuate disenfranchisement and other destructive behaviors. The experiences of persons who have successfully overcome barriers of marginalization, violence, or abuse and have transitioned into independent living are a rich source of insight and information concerning the multifaceted needs of victims and efficient strategies for meeting those needs. By sharing their testimonies, clients can encourage those experiencing these challenges and help service, governmental, and nonprofit organizations implement more efficient programs and outreach strategies. DCTS is committed to engaging our clients as passionate advocate partners in our efforts.
DCTS is committed to eliminating racism and all other forms of oppression. We understand this is a never-ending process requiring ongoing openness, diligence, and hard work. We believe that any form of oppression enables destructive behaviors, so efforts to end them must include an anti-oppression agenda. DCTS thinks that a wide-ranging array of perspectives results from inclusion and diversity, which allows our not-for-profit organization to be more effective; we commit to promoting inclusion and diversity in philanthropy and the not-for-profit sector. We are also dedicated to greater diversity and inclusion within our organization. We will provide equal opportunities to individuals of all races, ethnicity, genders, religions, sexual orientations, gender identifications, ages, socioeconomic statuses, marital statuses, geographic locations, philosophies, and veteran statuses at all levels of staff and governance.
