Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization's goal is to reduce area homelessness by providing supportive services, safe shelter, and housing navigation.

By reducing the number of days from admission to shelter into housing, our 23 bed shelter is able to serve an average of 125 individuals each year.

We have been serving the Saratoga area for over 30 years. Our shelter programs offer a therapeutic space where individuals work on their varying needs, alongside a case manager.

In 2022, we moved 62 individuals out of homelessness into safe and sustainable housing.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
