United HomeCare® Earns a “Give with Confidence” 100/100 Rating From Charity Navigator

August 24, 2020


United HomeCare
is proud to announce that its strong financial health and ongoing accountability and transparency have earned a/an 100/100 rating from Charity Navigator’s new Encompass Rating System. This score designates United HomeCare as an official “Give with Confidence” charity, indicating that our organization is using its donations effectively based on Charity Navigator’s criteria. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. Since 2001, the organization has been an unbiased and trusted source of information for more than 8.5 million users annually.

The Encompass Rating System is a comprehensive evaluation tool that analyzes nonprofit performance based on four key indicators. In July 2020, Charity Navigator released the first indicator, Finance & Accountability, to highlight nonprofit organizations demonstrating fiscal responsibility. This is determined by five metrics: Program Expense Ratio, Independent Audit or Financial Review, Board Composition, Liabilities to Assets, and Website Listing. The additional indicators, to be rolled out in the next 18-24 months, are Impact & Results, Leadership & Adaptability, and Culture & Community.

The Encompass Rating System enables Charity Navigator to increase the number of nonprofits it evaluates, growing from 9,000 to 160,000 nonprofits evaluated as of July 2020. In order to be more inclusive of smaller and more recently established nonprofits, the system uses technology-supported automation to analyze electronic tax forms filed annually by 501(c)(3) organizations.

“We are delighted that United HomeCares clear commitment to fiscal responsibility and transparency has earned it a “Give with Confidence” designation,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “As one of the first 150,000 nonprofits evaluated by the Encompass Rating System, we are eager to see the good work that the organization is able to accomplish in the years ahead.”

“Our Charity Navigator rating of 100 out of 100 through their Encompass Rating System is further
validation that our supporters can trust our commitment to good governance and financial accountability,”
said Carlos L. Martinez, President and CEO. “We hope that it will introduce our work to new supporters
who can help us advance our mission to
“make a difference in the lives of individuals by offering community- based health care solutions that promote independence and wellness.”

“COVID 19 has significantly impacted the home health and long-term care industry and has driven our organization to implement innovative steps to recruit and retain home health employees. As a result, we launched the United HomeCare Learn-n-Work United program which involves training or re-training and repurposing unemployed individuals to work in the home health industry. This has a regional economic and job creation impact in South Florida and enhances our mission to enhance the lives of older adults.”
