20 Feb Heartbeats: Adler Aphasia Center earns another 4-star rating
Charity Navigator recently announced that Adler Aphasia Center of Maywood and West Orange has earned their fourth consecutive four-star rating.
This is Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating and indicates that this organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a four-star rating verifies that Adler Aphasia Center exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its area of work. Only 10 percent of the charities they evaluate have received at least 4 consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Adler Aphasia Center outperforms most other charities in America. This designation from Charity Navigator sets Adler Aphasia Center apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.
“We are pleased to again receive this outstanding rating from Charity Navigator for the fourth year in a row. Our 4-Star rating proves our efficiency and leadership in the non-profit community,” said Karen Tucker, executive director of Adler Aphasia Center, in a news release. “We always aim to be a fiscally responsible organization while increasing the capacity and outreach of our programs to assist stroke and brain injury survivors with aphasia and their caregivers.”
Adler Aphasia Center, a nonprofit organization based in Maywood and West Orange, is a post-rehabilitative therapeutic program that addresses the long-term needs of people with aphasia and their families. Aphasia is a language disorder caused by stroke or other brain injury and can impair the expression and understanding of spoken language, reading and writing. This frustrating condition affects a person’s ability to communicate, but does not affect his or her intellect.
With almost 2,000,000 people diagnosed with aphasia in the U.S., the center is the only center of its kind in New Jersey, an area with an estimated 70,000 people living with aphasia. This communication disorder affects 40% of all stroke and brain trauma survivors.
