Data Sources

Data Sources: IRS Forms 990

The IRS Form 990 is the source of the finance and accountability data used within the Encompass Rating System. When an organization is eligible for a Finance & Accountability beacon score, each metric is based on elements of the 990. Some metrics are based on the most recent available filing, while others are based on averages of values over multiple years. We provide links to all available 990s here, whether or not this organization is eligible for a Finance & Accountability score.

IRS Forms 990 are provided courtesy of Foundation Center.

Total Revenue and Expenses

This chart displays the trend of revenue and expenses over the past several years for this organization, as reported on their IRS Form 990.

Note: This data is only available if this charity has at least one year of e-file Form 990 data.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

Wellness House of Annapolis works to provide non-medical, psychosocial supportive programs and services to children, adolescents, and adults diagnosed with or affected by cancer as well as their families and caretakers, free of charge. These programs and services assist survivors, their families, and caregivers in processing their cancer experience, enhance coping, increase overall self-care and management of stress, and support a mind-body-spirit approach to healing and well-being. Designed to help those whose lives have been impacted by cancer recover their health and well-being through participation with others in survivorship, these programs have a positive impact on one's survivorship as participants develop stronger healthier lifestyles, expand self-care, and enhance coping skills as they face future life challenges.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

The Wellness House of Annapolis's Cancer Care and Support program consists of three signature programs: 1) Survivorship programs/services for adults; 2) Cancer Awareness Resiliency Education Support (CARES™) programs/services for children and adolescents; and 3) Professional Counseling for individuals, couples, and families (including caregivers).

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

Each program/service provided by Wellness House has been identified as needed by our target populations, i.e., adults, teens, and children who have been diagnosed with or impacted by cancer. Each new program is carefully reviewed to determine if existing resources can provide the program or if additional resources need to be acquired, and if a format and design for the program already exists or needs to be developed. When existing professionally-provided services such as reiki and healing touch are needed, practitioners with appropriate credentials are identified and participate in Wellness House volunteer training before starting to provide these services under the supervision of our Program Director. In other instances, where the program may not exist, our professional staff may utilize resources from Hospice of the Chesapeake, Anne Arundel Medical Center, and other local organizations to assist in development of a standardized curriculum. All programs are provided by professionals licensed in their field; and, in the case of counseling and support groups, each is facilitated by a licensed LCSW-C or comparably credentialed individual and these groups may be assisted by a trained volunteer co-facilitator. Our licensed Program Director and Child and Adolescent Program Director review all program designs and curricula and provide program oversight. The Wellness House team is experienced in all aspects of program design and implementation - with adequate professional staff, skilled practitioners, and volunteers to incorporate new participants into existing programs and to design, implement, and provide facilitation of new programs as needs arise.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

The major quantitative measures used to assess the impact of our Wellness House programs/services, tracked by month and year, include the number of visits to participate in programs and services, unique members served, new members enrolling in our programs, counseling sessions, and counseling clients served. Qualitative measures assess the impact of our Wellness House programs/services on participants' lives in terms of initial, intermediate, and longer-term outcomes through written pre-evaluations, mid-phase interviews with participants, and post-evaluations.

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

All of our programs/services are offered without charge, allowing everyone affected by cancer, regardless of their socio-economic status or demographics, to participate. Our three signature Cancer Care and Support programs relate directly to our mission by providing professional, high quality programs designed to help those affected by cancer to deal with the stress and effects that cancer brings to patients, their loved ones, and caregivers. Also, our community partnerships facilitate cooperation and collaboration among organizations and professionals that provide medical and supportive care to those diagnosed with or affected by cancer. Enhanced training ensures that our volunteers and staff continue to provide high quality programs and services. Our quantitative and qualitative measures provide evidence that Wellness House programs and services meet our goals and mission objectives. For example, the numbers of individuals who utilize our programs and services has increased or remained stable; and additional licensed counselors and volunteer practitioners have come forward to provide these programs/services as needed. Adults, children, teens, and families (including caregivers) affected by cancer reported improving their resilience skills to regain and enhance their health and overall well-being. Additional indicators of these longer-term outcomes include positive reports from at least 90% of those who participated in the 2016 Bi-annual Wellness House Program Evaluation Survey. Adults (including caregivers) affected by cancer reported satisfaction with the programs/services provided; and adults who participated in programs reported that these were helpful in dealing with the cancer diagnosis, treatment, and/or recovery. Parents of children who participated in children's program reported their children: benefitted by coping better with the challenges they face related to their own cancer or cancer of their loved ones or caregiver, and by being able to identify and express their feelings, manage stress, and set goals.
