Homeless Coalition Certified As GreenNonprofit
http://www.greennonprofits.org

The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition for the Homeless (FKOC) has been certified by GreenNonprofits. "The GreenNonprofits organization was impressed by work  of the FKOC to advance the environmental sustainability of their operations and applauds their leadership in this burgeoning movement," said Ted Hart, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GreenNonprofits.org.

GreenNonprofits offers a certification program, website, newsletter and handbook, The Nonprofit Guide to Going Green, to steer the charitable sector toward a focus and commitment to the environment.

The coalition has taken steps to recycle, conserve energy, protect the environment and cut costs. The coalition's mission is to help homeless people  attain independence and self-sufficiency. It is the first Monroe County non-profit to receive certification from the organization.

Thanks to grants received to improve energy efficiency and conservation, the money the organization's five transitional housing facitilies are saving on utilities is helping offset some funding cuts.

"Saving money is more important than ever in today's economic environment," Braddock says. But saving money is not the only motivation. "We all have to do what we can environmentally to make our island and the world a better place. We have a responsibility to be good stewards, and we need to recognize it and do something about it." To learn more about FKOC's efforts to go green, visit www.FKOC.org.

The centerpiece of the GreenNonprofit movement is for each charity to become certified. This is a process that is both easy to understand and takes time to complete.

The first step is to create your profile and start earning points. You only need 100 points to become certified. You can start earning points right way. 

1. See what points you may have already earned with actions you have already taken
2. Review options for earning other points
3. Save your work
4. Engage your organization to make additional changes
5. Come back and add your new points
6. Repeat 2-5 until you have earned 100 points

 

For now you can download (for digital use on your computer) the certification application. Soon we will launch an online database you can use to store your work.

Go to http://GreenNonprofits.org and click on certification to get started.
