Need to Display Row % Breakdown for One Value in a Chart, Can Only Show This in a Matrix Visual

Hello, I have police call data and have used the actual response times to dispatched calls to create a column that assigns each call as either being responded to </= 5 minutes, or > 5minutes. We have a new target for this quarterly result that says we want the </= 5 minute responses to be at least 30% of all dispatched calls. I used a matrix visual to break down these percentages quarterly between <= 5 mins and > 5 mins. I did this by showing these field values as percet of the row totals. 


I need to be able to breakdown each quarter this way in a chart visual, AND I need to take it a step further and calculate the percentage gap between each quarter and the 30% target mark so we can see our quarterly progress to that target as we try to reach it. I have no dea how to get to this last step because I cannot figure out how to show each quarterly % of calls that are </= 5 mins in any other visual besides a matrix. I dont have that same option under "show value as" in any other visual. I only have the option to show values as a percentage of the grand total which is totally obsolete for what I am trying to break down for each quarter, which is just the percentages of the two values in my field (</= 5 mins and > 5 mins). 


Here is what my quarterly matrix looks like with my two column percentage values broken out for each quarter, and the path I selected from my Total Calls measure to get there:


If I need to create a measure that breaks down these value percentages by row (quarter) to be able to use for a chart visual I would be happy to do that, I just have no idea how to calculate the measure to tell it that I want the percentage of just one value in the field (</= 5 mins). If I can create a measure that can do this, perhaps I can use that measure to calculate the percentage gap between each quartlerly percentage of calls </= 5 mins and our 30% target value and show those gaps in another quarterly chart. 


I hope this makes sense, I would love a push in the right diretion, I can't find any videos or articles that specifically addresses how to do this. Thank you!

Here is a set of sample data that only has the fields needed for this visual:

I also built some tables and charts in the spreadsheet to demonstrate exactly what I would like the end result to look like in Power BI. Here is a screenshot of my goal chart: 



Anything you could provide to get me in thwe right direction would be greatly appreciated.



Your goal chart is not the right type. A 100% stacked column chart requires 100% of the data.  You can't just cap that at 30%.
