    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact 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 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 program provides a night of shelter for more than 400% of Fair Market Rent.
    This impact score was determined through the Emergency Shelter methodology which is fully detailed in the Charity Navigator Guide to Ratings. Analysis conducted in 2019 by Charity Navigator's acquired branch, ImpactMatters, using publicly available data from nonprofits and IRS forms 990, theory and evidence from scientific research studies.
