Standards of Excellence for Family-Run Organizations

< Back to All Resources

Family-run organizations are unique organizations established by parents caring for children or youth with mental/behavioral health needs. The board and employees share passion for the mission and work because of their personal “lived experience.” Family-run organizations are also non-profit businesses that must adhere to sound business practices and act with integrity. Balancing passion with business practices may appear to be in conflict with one another, but the concepts are, in fact, complementary and strengthen all aspects of a family-run organization.
