In 2016, Youth Haven needed to replace their full-time grant writer and contracted with Soukup Strategic Solutions to manage their grant writing and reporting, and to lead their management team through re-accreditation with the Council on Accreditation. For about the same cost as they had been paying for a single staff person to write grants, the Soukup Strategic Solutions team began writing Youth Haven’s grants, with a budgetary goal of $685K in grants income. Soukup Strategic Solutions exceeded the goal by 34%, with a total of $920K in grant awards for that fiscal year. Over the next several years, Soukup Strategic Solutions was able to increase Youth Haven’s grant awards to over $1.3M in 2020, which represents a 42% increase in 4 years. In 2021, grant awards constitute approximately 37% of Youth Haven’s annual budget, up from 22% in FY 2016.
