Legal Entity

Project Encompass, Inc. has been formed as a 501(c) (3) not for profit entity. The purpose of this organization is to offer women transitional housing, as well as teach skills that allow these women to become self-sufficient, independent, and free from their hurts, habits and hang-ups. Additionally Project Encompass, Inc. will also, when applicable, assist women to secure gainful employment and provide assistance in obtaining custody of their children.

Funds for the organization will come from many sources including: silent auctions and other in house fund raising efforts, local government funds, foundation grants, corporate and individual donations, and money from the federal government. Claryn Burnett has in-depth experience with fundraising as well as grant writing and this will be instrumental in Project Encompass, Inc.'s search for funding.

She received her Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling at Liberty University and is currently working on her Doctorate of Ministry in Congregation and Family Care at Bethel University. Her work background spans twenty five plus years in the non-profit sector where she participated in start up ogranizations as intake counselor and as a program manager.  She also participated as a grant writer for the organizations.  She gained much experience into the non-profit sector while working as an Assistant to a Director of United Way and is fully knowledgeable of the non-profit arena and in securing grants.  While at Humanity United with God for Society, (HUGS) Claryn worked as a program developer and intake counselor.  She currently holds the position of founder of Project Encompass, Inc. and serves as housing manager for the residence.  She also understands the many needs of this program through working with the Howard County Detention Center which she attends weekly.  She has first-hand knowledge and experience of this program from going through it herself. She realizes that only through the grace of God , she has survived and has remained substance free for the last 25 years.  She is an advocate of women who have fallen and are searching to find their way. She thoroughly understands the crucial need for this program in providing a second chance for the many women that have made mistakes during their lifetime.

Claryn began discussions with local community leaders to determine the level of support for a new social service organization. She found that there was money/funds to be had for a well-run, efficient social service organization that would offer transitional housing in the Howard County area. Project Encompass, Inc is a comprehensive empowerment program, that offer services that are absent from the County. Before she even began the business plan she was informally assembling the Board of Directors and researching sources of funds.
