Social Return on Investment (SROI) is a measure of the extra financial impact that programming has on the community. It is calculated by adding together all the costs of programming and then comparing them to the financial return created by those programming costs. Any SROI value greater than 1 means that the program is returning more in financial gains that it takes in. 

Our Social Return on Investment (SROI)

  • Every $1 invested in our Permanent Supportive Housing program yields $1.27 in social savings.

  • Every $1 invested in our Family Support Program yields $1.90 in social savings, largely due to the added benefits of serving children.

  • Every $1 invested in our Homeless Prevention Program yields $1.46 in social savings, because preventing an eviction in the first place is much less costly and disruptive for families.
