I've been following Modest Needs for years, and I can say with certainty that these folks are at the very top of their field. Not only are they willing to take on work that no one else seems willing to do (they help the 'working poor' - people who don't qualify for charity most of the time), they do so carefully, with integrity, careful due-diligence, and an awful lot of kindness. I have tremendous respect for the persons who work with Modest Needs and will continue to support their work for a very long time to come.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to provide more funding to the organization. It's clear they're overwhelmed with applications, and I think a nice 'shot in the arm' would really take this organization to the next level.

Unlike the previous poster, I actually do have expertise in this field, and I reviewed all of this organization's filings and audits going back for years. What they show is that the CEO of this organization made exactly the median salary of persons working in his capacity in similarly sized organizations based in New York City until the recession, at which time the CEO took a sizable pay cut. Simultaneously, the organization's program spending actually increased. Any person who actually were a non-profit professional would know that these are hallmarks of excellent management and a commitment to the mission of the organization on the part of its leadership, so I'm not so sure that the previous poster has any kind of expertise in this field whatsoever. Sounds more to me like someone with an axe to grind . . .

The CEO draws almost 2 hundred thousand dollars a year and car allowances.Looks like he is helping himself out from poverty.A score of 57.20 is the lowest and that is Modest Needs.
