(p.88) Chapter 4 The Financing and Stability of Organizations Serving the Poor
Out of Reach

Scott W. Allard

Yale University Press

This chapter attempts to connect the funding of service providers to the geography of the safety net by examining how nonprofit agencies assisting poor populations finance services and programs. It also investigates how organizational funding and resource dependency are distributed across communities. It explains that linking social service financing to the geography of service provision will create insight on how local organizations provide aid to the poor and will also show the obstacles that providers in the future will face. It also provides insight on how resource allocation might fit community needs.

Keywords:   funding of service providers, geography of the safety net, nonprofit agencies, poor populations, service provision, resource allocation
