Non-profit and humanitarian organizations frequently address some of the most significant social issues. Whether assisting individuals and families in navigating the effects or addressing issues like homelessness, mental health cases, or drug misuse, their work is crucial to helping people lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Originally, social services were meant to serve as emergency rooms for society's most vulnerable. They took in orphans and the homeless and fed the hungry. As the twentieth century wore on, social work expanded services to all segments of the less fortunate population, and nonprofits as well as government social agencies began to define their missions by identifying the quality-of-life outcomes their clients achieved. For example, social workers engaged in drug and alcohol addiction began to measure success, not by how many addicts they admitted to their clinics, but rather by how many addicts had remained clean and sober, and for how long, after being discharged from the clinics.

Why do people establish non-profit organizations? Some people are deeply committed to a particular cause and want to make a difference. They aspire to bring about positive social change.
