For several years, the three big nonprofit watchdogs have challenged donors and nonprofits alike to step up to the task of changing views on nonprofit overhead costs. Two years ago, we at H.O.M.E. accepted the challenge of joining the nonprofit community in addressing the Overhead Myth.

For many people, the holiday season is a time to give back to the community in ways big and small. It's often seen as a time of reflection, giving thanks, and spreading cheer to loved ones as well as to those who are in need of comfort and joy.
If you want to give your time or resources during this season of giving, you may be wondering where to start. Here are five ways to give back this holiday season:
In March, H.O.M.E. was awarded a grant by the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation.
Earlier this summer our Executive Director, Bruce Otto, met John Whaley, his longtime friend, in Minneapolis who presented him with the check. John is a MDRT member who endorsed H.O.M.E. for the honor.
On Thursday, April 28th nearly 300 H.O.M.E. supporters came together to celebrate H.O.M.E. at our Annual Celebration Dinner!
The American Society on Aging (ASA) is one of the nation's leading organizations for professionals in the field of aging. Every year, ASA hosts its annual Aging in America (AiA) conference, bringing together everyone from policy makers to front line workers to share their expertise and learn current and future trends in the field. This year roughly 3,000 professionals converged on sunny Washington, DC and I like to think our energy helped the cherry blossoms hit their peak bloom that week in March.
Last year nearly 300 H.O.M.E. supporters came together to celebrate H.O.M.E. Together, as a community of H.O.M.E. supporters, we were able to raise over $80,000 to help seniors in Chicago maintain their independence.
'Tis the season for New Years Resolutions. One common resolution I hear among my family and friends is that they are looking to give back and be more charitable. Fortunately, unlike many other resolutions, that is a pretty easy resolution to stick to and accomplish.
