You build the homes, we'll build the financials.
Month End was built from the idea that Habitat for Humanity affiliates core competency is building. You build homes, communities, and hope, and you do it well. All your staff members wear a lot of different hats. What if there was one less hat? What if you could focus on building homes instead of building your financial statements? As a previous Executive Director of a Habitat having worn all the other hats, Alia teamed up with our auditor who saw the potential for providing a service to Habitat's so that their staff could focus on growing the capacity of the affiliate.
“What if there was one less hat to wear?”
Alia started as an Americorps doing construction with Habitat. A few years later she became the Executive Director of an affiliate, but only after holding the roles and responsibilities of the construction crew leader, the volunteer coordinator, the family services manager, and the finance manager. It takes a lot of different personalities and skills to make an affiliate function. If you take out the financial piece, that's one less thing for your staff to juggle so you can focus on juggling the land, the families, and the volunteers and consider the money managed (but you're still going to have to raise it).
Audit ready financial statements ready for your board meeting so you can spend more time growing the capacity of your affiliate to serve more families, which is at the heart of what you do. We'll take it from the invoices that come in the inbox, to the payments that go out to your subs. From the journal entry to record the purchase of a piece of land held in inventory, to the closing entry where it will become a part of your mortgage receivables.
