This February will mark one year since the Alliance launched this new suite of services to aid in meeting the back office and administrative needs of nonprofit community-based organizations. Throughout the past year, the Alliance has added additional services including secure online background checks and expense management consulting.

“We are committed to growing our Operations Support Services so that the Alliance is a comprehensive and go-to resource for organizations looking to outsource operations to focus on their missions and providing services to their communities,” said Lenore Schell, senior vice president of strategic business innovation at the Alliance. “These best-in-class services are complemented with the Alliance’s trademark customer service.”

The Operations Support Services were formalized in response to the Alliance’s 2017 report, A National Imperative: Joining Forces to Strengthen Human Services in America. This groundbreaking report, developed in conjunction with the American Public Human Services Association, details the need to strengthen and preserve the pivotal role community-based organizations play in the larger human services ecosystem. Among four other “North Star” recommendations, the report outlines the importance for organizations to develop more robust finance and risk management capabilities.
