What we aim to solve New!

We believe many of our unhoused neighbors, and people living at poverty level do not have access to the most basic of professional self-care services. The lack of these services can act as barriers to obtain jobs, housing, sustaining relationships, support and a sense of well being, and deservedness.

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).
