ANCOR Report on Workforce Published

December 19, 2023

Key findings include:

  • 95% of respondents indicated they experienced moderate to severe staffing shortages in the past year
  • More than half (54%) of respondents indicated they deliver services in an area where few or no other providers deliver similar services (making any failure or service limitations/reductions by that provider a critical issue in maintaining access to services)
  • More than three-fourths (77%) of respondents reported turning away new referrals in the past year due to ongoing staffing shortages
  • 72% of respondents reported that they had experienced difficulties adhering to established quality standards due to ongoing staffing challenges
  • Of those respondents that reported offering case management services, fully three-fourths indicated they had experiences difficulties connecting people with services due to a lack of available providers
