Learn about the Encompass Rating System: Announcement | FAQ | Release Notes


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 due to only having 2 years of 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 2 years of consecutive e-filed Forms 990 from the IRS for Better Housing Foundation under the EIN: 47-3711663.
Before Charity Navigator can evaluate this organization, Better Housing Foundation will need to e-file for additional fiscal years.
