Service Provider Ratings
The criteria for judging homeless and poverty service providers, including a point scoring system, is intended to be able to determine which fare the best in doing actual good, as opposed to merely taking money and pocketing it. Points in the scoring system are good, with a perfect score being 100(%), and the worst score being zero (0).
There are 5 scales of rating criteria, 2 dealing with MOTIVE, 2 dealing with PERCEPTIONS OF REALITY, and one dealing with EFFECTIVENESS. The first, Motive, rates Altruism versus either cash profit, or versus agenda. Altruism is defined as follows: “Truly not-for-profit, in that no person, firm, nor corporation shall enure any benefit, directly or indirectly, from their association with the agency, whether of a negotiable or non-negotiable nature, except expressly those being helped by the agency. No ulterior motives.” A perfect score would involve not even having paid employees, of course.
A.) Cash Profit, 0……………………………Perfect Altruism, 20 MOTIVE
B.) Agenda, 0…………………………………Perfect Altruism, 20 MOTIVE
The second criterion, Perceptions of Reality, or MIND-SET, rates the organization on reality and truth, versus propaganda and feel-good lies. Or, upon new ideas versus complacency. This part of the ratings is a reality check. Mind-Set is defined as follows: “The realization of reality and real truth, encouraging new ideas, as opposed to the currently accepted lines of that reasoning and propaganda which are promulgated by society, the news media, and the university system.”
C.) Propaganda and Feel-Good, 0……….Truth and Reality, 20 REALITY
D.) Complacency, 0………………………………………….New Ideas, 20 REALITY
The third criterion, EFFECTIVENESS, deals with the organization´s ability to accomplish good things.
E.) Not Accomplishing Anything, 0………..Highly Effective, 20 IMPACT
A perfect score, which is probably impossible, would be 100(%), and a really terrible organization would score 30 or lower, minimum zero.
