2019 Hurricane Season – Is Your Nonprofit Ready?

13661 (1)

 

Hurricane season begins June 1st, 2019 and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a ‘near-normal’ hurricane season, due to El Nino and warmer-than-average Atlantic waters. They also predict a range of 9 to 15 named storms, which could include 2 to 4 major hurricanes (winds over 111 per hour).

If you operate your nonprofit or social service organization anywhere near a coastline, preparation is your best defense in minimizing the impact to your agency.

A thorough review of your commercial insurance policies is essential in preparing for the unpredictable. Get to know all of the exclusions in your policy, and if needed, talk to your insurance broker about purchasing separate coverage, such as flood or business interruption insurance. Without the proper coverage, you could be forced to pay out of pocket for the damages that are excluded in your policy.  Could your agency survive that?

Contact Hawley & Associates today for more information on the specialized insurance solutions your nonprofit needs to protect your mission this hurricane season.

Community Action Agencies – Changing People’s Lives

Community word cloud heart concept

The Economic Opportunity Act was founded in 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, to fight the war on poverty in the US.  This in-turn created the Community Action Program; a network of public, nonprofit and private organizations that help connect our nations children & families to services and programs, leading them to greater opportunities, economic stability, and self-sufficiency.

May is Community Action Month and Hawley & Associates would like to recognize the over 1000 Community Action Agencies and Programs that have the passion to serve and empower our community’s low-income families.

Housing Services

Shelters

Youth Services

According to the US Census Bureau, in 2017, the poverty rate in the US was 12.3 %, which is down 0.4% from 2016.  This is the third consecutive year in which the poverty rate has declined, but the problem is still very real.

Thank you to these agencies that dedicate themselves in fighting poverty and helping others help themselves and by allowing Hawley & Associates to be a part of your mission.
