    Impact Statement
    This impact rating was produced under a previous methodology that is no longer used to produce new ratings, and we are therefore unable to generate a dollar-specific impact statement.
    Program Context
    Wellspring House provides people experiencing homelessness with a temporary place to stay.
    Data Time Period
    7/1/16 to 6/30/17
    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact & Results scores of emergency shelters are based on the cost of providing a night of shelter relative to the Fair Market Rent in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 200% the Fair Market Rent and a score of 80 if they are less than 400%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 65.
    This nonprofit's cost per meal is less than 125% of the local meal cost.
