About Casey House:

Founded in 1988, Casey House is a small hospital providing care to people with HIV/AIDS in Toronto. The charity originally worked only with patients near the end of their lives, but with improvements in medicine, Casey House now focuses more on treatment than palliative care. Each day, 2-3 Ontarians are diagnosed with HIV. In F2018, Casey House cared for 319 clients who visited the hospital over 9,000 times.

Casey House provides 24-hour care to people in the inpatient program. At any time, 85% of housed patients have AIDS, and 75% are fighting HIV and drug use, mental illness, or more than 4 other chronic diseases. Patients requiring end-of-life care are given priority admittance.

Casey House’s day health program supports people living with HIV who are not in the inpatient program. Clients are provided hot lunches, skill building workshops, access to peer support groups, and care from nurses, massage therapists, social workers, physiotherapists, and foot care professionals.

Casey House conducts research independently and in cooperation with outside organizations, investigating issues related to HIV and specialized hospital care.

In June 2017, Casey House opened a new 58,000 square foot building, specially designed to meet clients’ evolving needs. The building was partially financed by a successful $10m campaign by the charity.

Results and Impact: Casey House received feedback from clients regarding their satisfaction with treatment at the hospital. Inpatients reported average satisfaction of 9.5/10 and day health participants reported 9.3/10. Casey House aims to maintain client satisfaction above 9/10 in F2019.

Financial Review:

Charity Intelligence has consolidated audited financial statements from Casey House and Casey House Foundation.

Casey House Foundation is a medium-sized charity, with donations and special events revenue of $3.0m in F2018. Casey House received $8.5m in government funding, representing 70% of total revenues. Administrative costs are 11% of revenues and fundraising costs are 24% of donations. For every $1 donated, 65 cents go to the cause, falling just below Ci’s reasonable range. Casey House has $7.9m in funding reserves, of which $1.4m is donor-endowed. Funding reserves declined by $31.4m from F2017 to F2018, largely due to building construction. Excluding donor-endowed reserves, the charity could run programs for 9 months with current funding reserves.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to Casey House for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
