What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Homeless Not Hopeless Inc.

Located in Hyannis, Massachusetts our four homes, two for women and two for men offer 50 beds for formerly homeless individuals. We provide an affordable, safe, sober, and supportive home environment where respect is given and expected.

Our organization is actively managed by men and women who were formerly homeless themselves. They are aware of the problems and the issues the homeless face and are equipped to help others.

Residents share expenses by paying a monthly community fee. in order to offset operating costs and to learn financial responsibility. This supports the goal of becoming self-sufficient and independent in order to transition into their communities as productive members of society.

Each member of a home shares the cost of food. Meals are eaten family style where problems and suggested solutions are shared.

Each resident determines his/her goals.

Our homes are classrooms where our community members learn the skills they need for independent living.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

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.
