“If I Need Help” is a not-for-profit that supports families with people who wander, such as children or the elderly. It started up without much structure, but with a lot of goodwill from the founders, Bruce and Erin. SCORE helped the company up-scale in order to cope with its rapidly growing membership, establish a realistic budget and formalize the various functions in the company. Proof yet again that all businesses, for-profits and not-for-profits alike, once they reach a minimum size, need to pay attention to the business-of-the-business approach of their operations.
