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.
