The mission of Newhouse is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing the tools that allow individuals and families to make positive choices and lead self-sufficient lives. Newhouse primarily serves Kansas City's urban core—an area where the majority of people live below poverty level, are exposed to high rates drugs/crime, and lack adequate education and employment skills. Our 88-bed shelter and transitional facility provides safety, respite, and a host of wraparound services to affect a positive change.

Impact & Results Score

Score
100/100
Program Name: Emergency Shelter
Program Name: Emergency Shelter

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Newhouse provides people experiencing homelessness with a temporary place to stay.
Impact Statement
$10 provides a night of shelter for a person experiencing homelessness.
Assessment Benchmark
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 cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 400%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Newhouse.
Data Source
We look for self-reported shelter nights. If we cannot find this information we estimate it using HIC data.
Method for Attributing 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.
