Laura's House is pleased to announce that we have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise! A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.
Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
Laura's House completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in our day to day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, Laura's House is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet our mission.
- In 2014 Laura's House employed 527 volunteers
- 12,228 hours were dedicated by individuals in volunteer roles
- New positions added in Legal Advocacy, CRC Administrative Roles, Resale Store Volunteer Captains and more!
