Abode Services receives eighth consecutive four-star rating
Submitted By Katie Derrig
For the eighth year in a row, non-profit evaluator Charity Navigator has awarded Abode Services its top four-star rating. This rating recognizes Abode Services' sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency as it works to end homelessness in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties.
Abode Services holds the highest Charity Navigator rating out of all homeless services providers in California, and the fourth highest of homeless services providers nationwide.
"Abode Services' coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of high-performing charities," according to Ken Berger, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. "Abode Services supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly when it acquires such a high rating."
Of the 5,500 organizations Charity Navigator currently rates, only 1% have received four stars for eight consecutive years, indicating Abode Services' long-term commitment to financial health, accountability, and transparency.
"What this rating really comes down to," said Abode Services Executive Director Louis Chicoine, "is trust. Without the trust of our donors, volunteers, funders, partners, and participants, our work wouldn't be possible. This rating offers Abode Services a way to validate the support we've received from the public, and to let our community know that we are doing the best job possible to fulfill our mission to end homelessness."
