Reports and Financials
Norwescap has a proven track record of delivering high-quality services throughout New Jersey since 1965. We work hard to ensure that every dollar we spend delivers maximum impact for the individuals, families, and communities we serve. In 2021, funded through a combination of federal, state, and local partners and thousands of generous donors, we provided 154,069 unique services to 24,516 individuals, and reached another estimated 10,000-12,000 people through our Food Bank’s distribution.
Return on Investment
Return on Investment (ROI) is not always easy to measure when it comes to human services. However, as part of our commitment to measuring impact, Norwescap tracks and assesses the value delivered through our various programs – ensuring that for every dollar contributed to our work or committed through our government contracts, the results are well worth the investment.
Altogether, for every $1 of Norwescap’s direct expenses in Fiscal Year 2021, we were able to deliver $3.36 in value to our participants and the community at large through our services.
Our ROI values are calculated based on a combination of direct assistance provided by Norwescap – such as childcare and energy assistance payments – and formulas provided by various trusted, external sources. For example, the total value of Norwescap’s investment in “food assistance” is based on calculations from the USDA and Feeding America; and the total value of “early childhood education” is a combination of childcare vouchers we provided to families in 2021, along with the “market value” of free childcare provided through Norwescap’s Head Start & Early Head Start programs. Our programs also position our participants to contribute to their communities in meaningful ways, increasing value to society and reducing the burden on future government spending.
