NestQuest Houston are delighted to have earned a 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency by GuideStar and Candid.
NestQuest Houston just earned a 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency by adding information to our Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar. By sharing these metrics we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress. We choose to display quantitative metrics which help to represent how hard NestQuest is working toward achieving its mission. These metrics include;
- Tenants with low incomes receiving housing subsidies,
- Families no longer living in unsafe or substandard housing,
- Number of low-income families housed in affordable, well-maintained units,
- Number of households which remain in place for least 18 months.
We’re proud to use GuideStar to be transparent in what we do, sharing our full and complete story with the world. To reach the Platinum level, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; 3 quantitative information about goals, strategies, and progress toward our mission. Through this system we are providing fresh information to 200+ charitable websites and applications which use GuideStar data. These organizations include AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good.
