“This recognition confirms Hope Center for Children’s commitment to uphold the highest standards of transparency for our performance," Chamlee Loscuito, Hope Center for Children’s CEO, said. "We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this accomplishment with the community."
To obtain the Platinum Seal of Transparency, HCC updated its profile on GuideStar with extensive information, including financial data, contact information and details about the goals and strategies of the center.
