Setting the Standard

Our nation’s not-for-profit housing, community based and long term care service providers are on a mission. Their objective: to provide the highest quality and the most compassionate care to those they serve. By continuing a tradition of mission-driven, consumer centered management and competent hands on care, not for profits set the standard in the older American housing and service continuum.

Mission Driven Values

Not-for-profit organizations manage their financial resources in accordance with their missions. Many not for profit housing and service providers were founded by faith based and civic groups of rich tradition, and their longstanding values are still reflected in their governance and management. They are not driven by the daily pressure to increase their bottom line for owners, investors, or shareholders. Quality rather is the barometer of a not for profit organization’s efforts.


Not-for-profit organizations are accountable to voluntary boards of directors, who donate their time and talent to ensure the ethical management, financial integrity and quality services are maintained. Not for profit finances are always open for public inspection. With such information readily available on the internet, the information is literally at consumer’ fingertips. Not for profits have a responsibility to be active, contributing members of their localities.


Not-for-profit providers have a longstanding tradition of leading with quality. A review, in combination with statistical contrasting and combining results from 82 studies that compared not for profit and for profit nursing homes, found that not for profit aging services organizations produced superior outcomes on several quality measures.
