Encompass Rating System by Charity Navigator


Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System evolves on a quarterly basis as we add new measures and indicators, which we call Beacons. Check back often to see how this organization’s score changes.

Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-EZ, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $200,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

Note: Encompass Rating Beta V1 does not incorporate impact data into a charity's rating.


What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The goal is to help ease the burden on patients and caretakers while the patient is undergoing chemotherapy.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

We provide meal cards to restaurants and housecleaning services so the focus can be on helping the patient. We also provide a patient partner who is a breast cancer survivor so they an answer questions about treatment and what to expect thru the process along with an informative website.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

We have several breast cancer survivors who are patient partners and who also serve on our board. We continue to educate our patient partners on new treatments by having semi annual dinners where we invite speakers to come educate our partners. We do fundraising to enable us to provide the meal cards and housecleaning services.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

We send out surveys to patients to make sure we are providing a satisfactory service. We also have our patient partners communicate things to us if they discover there is something extra a patient is needing that we aren't providing. We monitor the number of people we help each year and continue to work with the cancer centers to make sure they have our information to distribute to patients.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

We started out supporting patients in the Des Moines, IA metro area. We have recently expanded our services to Ames, IA and Cedar Falls, IA. We are looking to grow our presence in these new locations before finding other areas to expand to.
