Business Acumen

Our members don’t just deliver services—they run businesses. From accounting to human resources to communications and everything in between, we have the resources you need to run a successful business.

About This Priority

Those of us in the business of human services tend to think about our work more in terms of services and less in terms of business. But whether we think in these terms or not, the leaders at the helm of community provider organizations are very much businesspeople. After all, running a disability services agency means both/and: both supporting people and running a business.

As anyone who has run a human services organization can attest, the set of skills required is vast. Community providers need to know a lot about how to deliver quality services. But they also need to establish competency in an array of areas: finance and accounting, fundraising, human resources, communications and marketing, technology, community outreach and more.

We know staying ahead of the curve in each of these areas can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be, because you have ANCOR on your side. We curate resources to help you hone your business acumen and ensure that your business operations are just as solid as the services you deliver.
