Results and Impact

Casey House was involved in the publication of a third-party evaluation, Health care utilization in medically complex people living with HIV before and after admission to an HIV-specific community facility: a pre–post comparison study. The study reviewed pre-post outcomes of 268 people living with HIV who were admitted to Casey House between 2009 and 2015. The study found that emergency department use declined from 4.6 to 2.5 visits per person-year after discharge from CH, and hospitalization rates declined from 1.4 to 1.1 admissions per person-year.

The charity also reported that 24 overdoses were reversed in F2022.

While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Casey House’s results and impact. This charity is not yet rated on impact (n/r).

Charity Intelligence has consolidated the audited financial statements from Casey House and Casey House Foundation.

All donations from the public are received by Casey House Foundation. The Foundation had donations and special events revenue of $4.3m in F2023. Casey House received $11.1m in government funding, representing 68% of total revenues.

Administrative costs are 13% of revenues (less investment income) and fundraising costs are 28% of donations. This results in total overhead spending of 40%. For every $1 donated, 60 cents go to the cause. This is outside Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.

Casey House and its Foundation have reserve funds of $14.3m, of which $6.1m is donor-endowed. Excluding donor-endowed funds, CH could cover ten months of annual program costs with current reserve funds.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to Casey House for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
