...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit a Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology due to only having one year of electronically-filed IRS Form 990 data.

To ensure year-to-year consistency the Encompass Rating System’s Finance & Accountability beacon analyzes the three-year average of some data provided through the IRS 990.
Charity Navigator currently only has one year of consecutive e-filed Forms 990 from the IRS for Hope Connection International Inc. under the EIN: 45-3723521.
Before Charity Navigator can evaluate this organization, Hope Connection International Inc. will need to e-file for additional fiscal years.

Business Master File Data

The Exempt Organization IRS Business Master File (BMF) includes cumulative information the IRS collects and displays for all exempt organizations. The data is updated monthly. Below are some key data points from the BMF for this organization. View information about the BMF on the IRS website here.


Activity data not reported from the IRS

Foundation Status:

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.

...   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?

Phase I (2012) Mending the Soul classes offered for domestic violence and abuse recovery; this program also addresses any victims who witnessed abuse, were abandoned as children, or who need further healing from past trauma to strengthen their marriages and families. Phase II (current) Our Community Care Center offers free support groups and enrichment classes, reaching out to parents and teens with crisis prevention resources, as well as after-care support for victims of domestic violence, loved ones of addicts, and others, with education and resources to promote the healing process. Phase III Opened our new thrift store called Deja vu Furniture and Home Decor in November 2017. This social enterprise business will help fund our mission. Phase IV (in planning stages) Supportive housing program for women and men, especially those who are homeless due to abuse or those who have aged out of foster care, long-term rehab, or jail, and need life skills, mentoring, and guidance to become healthy, high-functioning members of society. We are planning a long-term supportive housing program for victims of domestic violence with children. Victims need a safe place to heal without interference and manipulation, free of financial stress, so they can focus on building a better future for themselves and their families. We are also planning a Yurt Village Community for men coming out of long-term rehab or jail.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

Currently, we are raising funds through affiliate event fundraising programs, event galas, online and social network marketing, and corporate private grants. We have opened a resale/ retail furniture and home decor store that will eventually increase the non-profit's net revenue by hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. As the store begins to generate funding and program growth, Hope Connection International will qualify for more robust grants, expand programs, and attract more a larger donor base.

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

We are currently capable of reaching our budget and program goals on a yearly basis. Our programs and direct services are expanding, our revenue is growing steadily, and our capital campaign for the store is beginning to gain traction. As revenue growth grows large enough, executive level staffing will transition from part-time to full-time and allow for more opportunities. Volunteerism and donations through the store will engage the community in a more visible way, provide more funding for issue awareness, and self-perpetuate a deeper impact.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Output and impact can be measured by revenue growth, the number of classes and services offered, regular attendance, and brand identification. Regular statistics tracking of all of these categories is already in progress with exception of brand identification.

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

Class growth, attendance, and revenues are growing exponentially each year. We have already begin to sponsor domestic violence victims and the planning and development stage of the store is well underway. We must reach profitability in the thrift store in order to begin laying down the framework for the larger housing programs. Or, we must attract and retain a large donor base, major gifts, and private or public grants.

Constituent Feedback

Constituent Feedback

Constituent Feedback and Listening Practice data are not available for this organization. Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to fill out the How We Listen section of their Candid profile. This data will provide the basis for the initial evaluation of Community & Culture.

Why It Matters

Like the Encompass Rating System, the Culture & Community Beacon is designed to evolve as relevant metrics are developed and ready for integration. Our partnership with Feedback Labs and Guidestar by Candid, and other partners including Fund for Shared Insight, GlobalGiving and Keystone Accountability, enables us to launch the first version of this beacon with Constituent Feedback information collected on Candid's site.

Feedback practices have been shown to support better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion outcomes, an essential area of assessment that we intend to further expand and develop in the future. Feedback Labs has documented several studies which indicate that beyond achieving organizational goals, nonprofits that are attentive and responsive to concerns and ideas raised by beneficiaries establish stronger relationships with the people they serve, promote greater equity, and empower constituents in ways that can help to ensure better long-term outcomes. You can find resources to help nonprofits improve their feedback practices here.
