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.
Not-for-profit organizations manage their financial resources in accordance with their missions. Many non-profit housing and service providers were founded by faith-based and civic groups from rich traditions, and their longstanding values are still reflected in their governance and management. They are not driven by daily pressures to increase the bottom line for owners, investors, or shareholders; quality, rather, is the barometer of a not-for-profit organization’s efforts.
Non-profit organizations are accountable to voluntary boards of directors, who donate their time and talent to ensure that ethical management, financial integrity, and quality services are maintained. Non-profit finances are always open for public inspection, their information readily available on the internet. Non-profits have a responsibility to be active, contributing members of their localities.
Non-profit providers have a longstanding tradition of leading with quality. A review combining results from 82 studies that compared not-for-profit and for-profit nursing homes found that not-for-profit aging service organizations produced superior outcomes on several quality measures.
