Washington area human service nonprofits, squeezed by the recession of 2001 and the subsequent slow recovery, have been confronted with rising demand and increasing costs accompanied by only sluggish revenue growth. The working paper, “Thin the Soup or Shorten the Line: Choices Facing Washington Area Nonprofits” examines how these organizations, which provide crucial services throughout the region, have responded to this challenging environment. Martha Ross and Joe Cordes provided an overview of the study’s findings at the forum, followed by panelists who discussed the implications for nonprofits in the region.
