Taysia Blue Rescue is pleased to announce that we have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise! A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.
Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
Taysia Blue Rescue completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in our day to day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, Taysia Blue Rescue is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet our mission.
Through this program we have created an organizational structure of teams, including Fostering, Volunteering, Adoptions, and Marketing, allowing us to better leverage and engage our current volunteers and all new volunteers in the future. This played a majot part in reducing our 'time in rescue' by half and that means we've been able to saves more lives than ever before!
