This score provides an assessment of a nonprofit's financial health (stability, efficiency and sustainability) and its commitment to governance practices and policies.


Finance & Accountability Score

Not currently scored

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology due to only having 2 years 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 2 years of consecutive e-filed Forms 990 from the IRS for Moments of Hope Outreach under the EIN: 81-1110291.
Before Charity Navigator can evaluate this organization, Moments of Hope Outreach will need to e-file for additional fiscal years.


Note: The absence of a score does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, it only indicates that we have not yet evaluated this organization.

Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Moments of Hope Outreach reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

Our revenues increased substantially since the pandemic reached our area, as our faithful supporters rose to the occasion and gave generously to help us meet the daunting needs and increasing requests for help.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

We paused every operation and micro ministry except our homeless outreach for three weeks while we assessed risks and modified our processes. This meant hundreds of guests of our pantry and our Saturday Servings events had to go without the groceries and lunches they have come to depend on to make it through the week. We paused all volunteer activities until conditions warranted, and relied upon our staff of four to perform all of the duties normally done by dozens of regular volunteers. By the beginning of Summer 2021, most of that team had thankfully returned. We temporarily paused our partner churches and businesses preparing a hot meal for our Saturday Servings guests, and paused our Bike Shop, Let’s Pray table, and Ask the Nurse table, and offered only groceries. We gradually resumed having our groups prepare brown bag lunches for our core team to handout, and eventually returned to groups preparing a hot meal and serving it.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

We continue to adapt to the changing conditions caused by COVID-19. Our pantry no longer allows our guests inside, and now operates strictly as a drive-thru pantry. Requests for emergency motel stays from the growing number of neighbors experiencing homelessness continue to rise after a spike due to the pandemic’s impact on employment and housing. The number of guests joining us at our weekly outdoor community events has surpassed pre-pandemic averages and continues to climb, causing us to continually modify processes. We purchased 100 orange cones to keep guests spaced 8’ apart, and tall orange traffic stanchions with rope to create safe zones for volunteers to prevent unexpected close encounters with guests.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

We will likely keep our pantry as a drive-thru.

Learn how we assess the impact of nonprofits

Outcomes and Cost

Outcomes: Changes in the lives of those served by a nonprofit. They can be caused by the nonprofit.

Costs: The money spent by a nonprofit and its partners and beneficiaries.

Impact: Outcome caused by a nonprofit relative to its cost.

Cost-effectiveness: A judgment as to whether the cost was a good use of resources to cause the outcome.


Outcome Metric

A meal provided to a person in need


Outcome Data Source

Ratings are based on data the nonprofit itself collects on its work. We use the most recent year with sufficient data. Typically, this data allows us to calculate direct changes in participants' lives, such as increased income.


Outcome data collected during the program. The nonprofit submitted data on the amount of food it provides.


Method for Attributing Outcomes

We don't know if the observed changes were caused by the nonprofit's program or something else happening at the same time (e.g., a participant got a raise). To determine causation, we take the outcomes we observe and subtract an estimate of the outcomes that would have happened even without the program (i.e., counterfactual outcomes).


We assume that the distribution of a meal from one nonprofit's food distribution program does not diminish the amount of food distributed by any other (neighboring) food distribution program. This “counterfactual” assumption about the amount of food distributed in the absence of the nonprofit’s food distribution program implies that the benefit of a meal to a beneficiary in need constitutes a net gain; the gain is not offset by reductions in food provided to other beneficiaries in need. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.


Cost Data Source

After estimating the program's outcomes, we need to determine how much it cost to achieve those outcomes. All monetary costs are counted, whether they are borne by a nonprofit service deliverer or by the nonprofit’s public and private partners.


Program cost data reported by the nonprofit. Partner and beneficiary costs reported by the nonprofit or estimated by Charity Navigator.


Cost Calculation

$104,769 program costs + $7,015 partner costs + $0 beneficiary costs = $111,784 total costs


Impact and Determination

We calculate impact, defined as the change in outcomes attributable to a program divided by the cost to achieve those outcomes.

Impact Calculation

$111,784 total costs / 62,861 meals provided = roughly $2 provides a meal to a person in need.

Benchmark for Rating

Impact & Results scores of food distribution programs are based on the cost of a meal relative to the cost that a food-secure person incurs to buy a meal in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 75% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 125%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.

Determination

Highly cost-effective
