North County Lifeline is proud to be one of the first organizations in California to be recognized as a Service Enterprise. What does this mean for the community?

#1 - Increased Capacity: Research by TCC Group and Deloitte shows that Service Enterprise nonprofits outperform peers in organizational capacity, addressing community needs, and ROI in volunteer capacity.

#2 - New Opportunities: Certification has led to new volunteer opportunities and increased support for volunteers.  For example, corporate groups have new opportunities with Lifeline, such as creating ‘All Stars Kits’ for the Academic All Stars homework and tutoring program.

Lifeline extends a big thank you to Cindi Phallen of Create Possibility for her leadership as Lifeline’s Service Enterprise consultant.
