Heart of Los Angeles is pleased to announce that we have been certified by CaliforniaVolunteers
as a Service Enterprise
. An organization is certified as a Service Enterprise when it has demonstrated that it fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills to successfully deliver on the social mission of its organization. With this certification, HOLA becomes one of the first organizations in California to be recognized as a Service Enterprise by CaliforniaVolunteers, the state office that manages programs and initiatives aimed at increasing the number of Californians engaged in service and volunteering. Nationwide, HOLA joins a select group of fewer than 15% of nonprofit organizations to have received this designation. Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
Heart of Los Angeles wouldn’t be the amazing place that it is without the hard work and dedication of all our volunteers, and we are honored to be certified as an organization that utilizes its volunteers effectively.
