Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic not only has affected people’s health and finance all over the world, but it has impacted nonprofit organizations in several ways. During times of crisis, nonprofits become even more essential to support communities. This is the case for the Douglas County Task Force on Family Violence, Inc. (DCTF), a nonprofit organization that provides support and help for people within its community that is experiencing or have experienced violence. For this reason, it is important to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted different aspects of nonprofit organizations, how they have responded to lessen those impacts and any new strategies that can be implemented. Thus, the overall purpose of this research is to recognize the impacts this ongoing crisis (the COVID-19 pandemic) has had on nonprofit’s operations and their service delivery and identify approaches that nonprofits have taken to counteract the effects of the COVID-19 crisis. Qualitative data will be gathered through a review of scholarly literature and will be evaluated using a thematic analysis method by identifying common themes throughout the data. Data will also be collected by conducting interviews with staff and multidisciplinary team members from the DCTF. Secondary quantitative data will also be gathered from service satisfaction surveys that the agency already implements. The results will be a deliverable that will apply specifically to the DCTF, which will incorporate conclusions from the quantitative and secondary qualitative data. Conclusions will include strategies and suggestions specifically for the agency.
