My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Baptist Home Inc, Ironton, MO, USA
This nonprofit provides care for the elderly that society often forgets about. You hear about how minimum wage increases help the poor gain a better living. Most elderly do not receive an increase in their retirement income that relates to the minimum wage increase, so they actually receive a decrease in their purchasing power. The Baptist Home, without accepting any government funding, provides the care that these elderly individuals need. The cost of this care far exceeds the donations received an most years. When many "charities" struggle to spend $.05 of every $1.00 raised, The Baptist Home usually provides well over $1.00 in unreimbursed care for every $1.00 donated. The cost of raising funds is also much lower than most organizations. I make a donation every two weeks to help support this ministry.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Changes are always being implemented at The Baptist Home in an attempt to improve the facilities and the care of the residents. Although a wellness program is in place, I would like to see it expanded to include a fitness area and some additional wellness assistance added.
