About Renascent Fellowship:

Founded in 1970, the mission of Renascent (operating as Renascent Fellowship and receiving donations through Renascent Foundation) is to facilitate “recovery, education and prevention relating to substance addictions through a continuum of programs and services for individuals, families and organizations.” It aims to achieve its mission through its four main programs: Primary Care, Continuing Care, Family Care, and Alumni Care.

Renascent’s Primary Care program is an intensive recovery program based on the 12-step approach. Continuing Care helps prevent people recovering from addiction from relapsing. Family Care engages one’s whole family in the recovery process. Finally, Alumni Care builds a community through social events and volunteer opportunities for those who have graduated from Renascent’s programming.

In F2016, Renascent served 1,262 men, women, and children, and had 918 people stay in residential care. Its Family Care program offered 344 programs to children and families. Its Continuing Care program served 236 people.

A third-party evaluation conducted in October 2008 found that 71% of clients who completed the Primary Care and Continuing Care programs were able to maintain abstinence 24-months following treatment.

Financial Review:

Charity Intelligence has consolidated the financial statements of Renascent Fellowship and Renascent Fellowship Foundation.

Renascent Fellowship and Renascent Foundation together form a medium-sized charity with donations and special events revenues of $1.5m in F2016. Its administrative costs are 17% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 38% of donations. For every dollar donated, 45 cents go towards Renascent’s programs, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. The charity has $1.5m of funding reserves, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 34%. This means that the charity can cover 4 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves, indicating a need for funding.

This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Renascent. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
