The Minnesota Department of Human Services offers a three-part educational program that helps home and community-based service providers design plans for sustainability. Sustaining Your Nonprofit Into the Future: A Curriculum for Home and Community Based Service Providers encourages leaders to think broadly about their nonprofit’s sustainability. The first course helps leaders assess community needs and find ways to create sustaining relationships. The second course helps identify strategic position–or “niche”–and how strengths fit with the community’s priorities. The last course provides tools to help sustain the organization financially.
