Nonprofit Becoming a Fully Integrated Services Delivery Model
Ken Goodgames has resigned as CEO from Transformance, the Dallas-based nonprofit where he promoted organizational change from the top down, beginning with changing the name of the previous Consumer Credit Counseling of Greater Dallas. Goodgames has been appointed CEO of the Community Council of Greater Dallas, effective Dec. 20. Transformance has installed Dr. Daniel B. Prescott as interim CEO until a full-time replacement can be found.
“Leaving Transformance was a difficult and personal decision,” said Goodgames. “We’ve achieved so much in the way we deliver services in just two short years. I know that Transformance will continue to thrive under the very capable leadership of its Board of Directors and its current team of leadership executives. My plan forward is to continue expanding my role as a servant leader within the Dallas nonprofit community.”
Transformance, an integrated financial capability nonprofit, has undergone a real transformation of its own under Goodgames’ leadership—from a core competency of financial literacy to becoming a fully integrated services delivery model. These efforts were based on the Annie E. Casey Working Family Success Model, which stresses the three key components of financial education, social services and workforce development. Here are some of Transformance’s strategic examples of implementing this approach:
• Children’s Health – piloted a program for 15 Lake Highlands’ families with uninsured children, restricted to those with at least one child having an ongoing health issue. Provided nutritious food assistance and medical resource/placement assistance
• Community Counseling – formed a partnership with Safe Conversations, a nonprofit dedicated to providing couples, families and organizations with communication techniques proven to strengthen relationships at home, work, and school. The Transformance staff is now certified through Safe Conversations training sessions
• Job Placement – created a proprietary employment program with GameStop, which included job training, placement and even transportation services for qualified job-seekers
• Veterans Assistance – formed alliances with veteran service organizations (VSOs) such as NPower and Grace After Fire to provide job placement, housing assistance and counseling
• Education – created mobile apps and online games, Pocket Change USA and Pocket Change KIDS, to teach financial literacy skills through a gamified learning process
“The pride I take in what the board, stakeholders and staff have achieved at Transformance is nothing short of inspiring for just two short years,” said Goodgames. “This organization will continue to set a first-class example for what servant leadership can accomplish in developing sustainable communities.”
As an organization, Transformance pledges to continue their growth and outreach, enhancing the vision of support and coaching for those they serve. The nonprofit has a rich past, and a rewarding future ahead.
