Funding and Service Sustainability

Family Services' confidence in securing adequate

to sustain these services comes from the agency's

history of providing financially accessible services

to resource-limited families. As with the agency's other services, the financial sustainability for this project will be driven by and dependent upon the agency's ability to garner financial and/or in-kind support through foundation, contributions, and grant funding. 

Residential participants will be expected to contribute a reasonable percentage of their income, of which a portion will serve as funding toward operations, and the other portion set aside for the family's use upon exiting services.  the agency will also leverage other non-income benefits available to participants. 

The agency will also seek federal, state, and local funding sources to support the ongoing operations. The interest shown by a wide range of both individual and government funders has suggested the projected outcomes of the program are very attractive.
