Our Social Return on Investment (SROI)

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. 

Renaissance's programming results in significant social return on investment:

For every dollar you invest in our programs, the community gains
more than a dollar in real benefits! 
  • For every $1 invested in our Permanent Supportive Housing program, $1.69 is returned to the community.

  • For every $1 invested in our Family Support Program, $1.62 is returned to the community.

  • And for every $1 invested in our Homeless Prevention Program, $2.84 is returned to the community.
