Partnering with Not-for-Profits
COF is always open to any new ideas that might come its way from any source. One of the many ideas that COF is considering is extending our hand to other not-for-profit providers of social services of all types to work with us on mutually beneficial opportunities for collaboration. There are many examples of ways to significantly improve operational efficiencies and of ways to achieve improved economies of scale beneficial to organizations that share the common goal of providing services to people in need.
COF fully comprehends the application of capital market force concepts in the delivery of social services. No enterprise of any kind is immune from natural market forces. Not-for-profit providers of social services cannot afford to passively stand by on the sidelines in these difficult socio-economic circumstances and to rely on their primary source of revenue, the government, to solve their problems.
COF is currently working with the following other associations:
- Franklin County Health Department
- Coffey County Health Department
- Osage County Health Department
- Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL)
- Kansas Assistive Technology Corporation (KATCO)
- ADRCs - East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging
- Elizabeth Layton Center (Mental Health Center)
- East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation (ECKAN)
- Midland Care
