Abstract

The article examines the question: What makes the difference between nonprofit organizations and for-profit organizations providing home care services? The organizational properties examined are type of ownership and age of the organization. Multiple regression analysis was conducted in order to examine the relationships between these properties and process variables such as training workers, growth of clientele, and increase in income and expenses. The results reveal that structural properties such as age indeed affect the difference between nonprofit and for-profit home care organizations. Findings also indicate that type of ownership generates the differences between the organizations as well as the dynamics between them.
