Hope House Statement of Financial Stewardship

Hope House is conscientious of the responsibility that comes with gift stewardship. We understand the importance of the gifts that are given to us and that donors are entitled to understand how we use their gifts and account for the dollars that we spend.

The Hope House development office carries out operations in strict adherence to the Donor Bill of Rights (http://tinyurl.com/yjgnlog) and to the Association of Fundraising Professionals Code of Ethical Principles and Standards (http://tinyurl.com/y8klzht).

Hope House maintains statistical information for each client served and report in aggregate client demographics to ensure client confidentiality. Hope House complies with all reporting and grant compliance requirements.

Hope House financials are audited annually by Ifft & Co. PA. The fiscal year 2015 report was issued on March 22, 2016 in which Hope House received a clean opinion as follows “In our opinion the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Hope House, Inc. as of September 30, 2015, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America."

Because Hope House receives in excess of $500,000 of federal grant funds a federal compliance audit is required in accordance with U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-133. Hope House received the following opinion “In our opinion, Hope House, Inc. complied, in all material respects, with the types of compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on its major federal programs for the year ended September 30, 2015."  The summary of auditor’s results as reported in the Schedule of Findings and Questioned Costs reported no audit findings required to be disclosed in accordance with Section 510(a) of OMB Circular A-133.

A Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards is included as part of the OMB Circular A-133 federal compliance audit listing grant funds expended in fiscal year 2015. Total funds awarded may vary from funds expended in a single fiscal year as awards may be for multiple years and funds are received as services are provided. Upon the close of the award period unobligated funds are forfeited.

The Independent Auditor's Report is available upon request.
