The goals of Siffrin is to, first and foremost, maintain health and safety of each person served. Siffrin services assist each person to make decisions and be as independent in their home and community as possible.

Siffrin professionals are trained and educated to support people with developmental disabilities. As a human service organization, our number one priority and asset is staff, who each day work with and serve people in our community with disabilities.

Siffrin has more than 30 years experience in the field of developmental disabilities. Siffrin has been witness and involved in much change in the field since 1976. Siffrin services have been accredited by CARF International since 1993. With that accreditation in Employment Services, Siffrin is able to partner with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities.

Siffrin measures success in financials, numbers of people impacted by service and within the unique successes and accomplishments of people served.

Each year, Siffrin progresses in terms of service and numbers of people served. In the past ten years, Siffrin has increased people served by 173%. We continue to expand in different areas of the state of Ohio, now serving nine counties.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
