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.


Boise Rescue Mission reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Staffing

  • In-Kind donations decreased during the pandemic due to the safety risk of face-to-face contact. Eventually, a contactless donation system was put in place.


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

Boise Rescue Mission moved operational funds to dedicated COVID-19 relief efforts within its facilities. These funds provided safety equipment and supplies to ensure the health and safety of homeless guests and staff.


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

Boise Rescue Mission's programs were modified to ensure the safety of program members. Modifications include social distancing, sheltering in place when necessary, and the use of face coverings.


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

Boise Rescue Mission had to adapt its service offerings because of a lack of staff in its facilities. At-risk staff was not able to work inside facilities. Staff who were at less risk worked longer hours to ensure the basic needs of homeless guests were still being met.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

Boise Rescue Mission will maintain quarantine safety protocols moving forward in case of illness or a future crisis.

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 night of shelter for a person experiencing homelessness


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 nights of shelter provided.


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 provision of shelter by one nonprofit does not diminish the provision of shelter by any other (neighboring) nonprofit. We also assume there is, in general, no slack capacity in the homeless shelter system. In the absence of a given shelter, beneficiaries would not be able to stay at another shelter because other shelters are assumed to have no beds to spare. 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

$2,903,275 program costs + $0 partner costs + $0 beneficiary costs = $2,903,275 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

$2,903,275 total costs / 100,926 nights of shelter provided = roughly $30 provides a night of shelter to a person experiencing homelessness.

Benchmark for Rating

Impact & Results 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 & Results score of 100 if they are less than 200% the Fair Market Rent and a score of 75 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 50.

Determination

Highly cost-effective

Leadership Development

The nonprofit provides evidence of investment in leadership development


Describe an investment in leadership

Boise Rescue Mission Ministries is a unique ministry in that many who come to work here have not had previous experience working in a place that helps people overcome homelessness. Much of the training is on-the-job. Additionally, approximately 25% of Mission staff are graduates from the Mission's New Life Discipleship Recovery Program. Opportunities are provided for the graduates to do an internship first and many opt to stay on as staff in order to give back. These graduates are provided with mentoring and leadership books to help them become the leaders they were created to be.

Mobilizing for Mission

The nonprofit provides evidence of leadership through focusing externally and mobilizing resources for the mission.


This organization mobilizes for mission in the following ways:
  • Strategic Partnerships

  • Raising Awareness

  • Community Building

What are this organization’s external mobilizaton efforts?

Boise Rescue Mission Ministries does not rely on funding from the government and all cash and in-kind donations are provided by the generosity of our community. We rely on the community to provide donations of food, clothing, household goods, toiletries, and much more. We also rely on cash donations from the community to provide for the items we need to purchase and for the staff we pay. We so greatly appreciate our community and we work very hard to convey our thanks to everyone who assists the Mission. We spread the word through mailings, social media, television, phone calls, billboards, videos, and radio. We also rely on volunteers to assist with sorting donations, serving food, hosting food drives and filling the gap in the outreach to those in need. Additionally, we refer our guests to community partners who provide services that we do not (medical, etc.).

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


In this past year, our organization has made changes that best serve our guests and staff. We relied on CityGate Network and the CDC to provide guidance for the best way to keep our guests safe during COVID-19. At the same time, we kept close watch on our staff to ensure they were keeping healthy. We also increased communication to our community so they would be aware of the precautions we put in place to make sure our guests were safe and continued to be well cared for. We also have many children who stay in our shelters. Since schools were closed, we created 2 Schoolhouses in our facilities in Boise and Nampa to ensure their education continued. We hired additional staff to help the children with their schoolwork and to provide healthy outlets for fun and recreation.
