We are proud to announce that OUR Center once again received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.  This is the highest possible rating and indicates that an organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. “Only 9% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 5 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that OUR Center outperforms most other charities in America.  This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets OUR Center apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.” – Michael Thatcher, President and CEO – Charity Navigator, June 1, 2018 notification letter

Charity Navigator aims to accentuate the work of efficient and transparent organizations and to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector.
