- our story
As we continue to expand our programs, serving even more at-risk youth and seniors in inner-city Knoxville, our budget demands grow as well. Our annual operating budget is currently slightly over $600,000. While we are fortunate to receive funds from great supporters like United Way of Greater Knoxville and the United Methodist Women, we still rely on the kindness and generosity of individuals and local groups and organizations for the majority of our operating funds.
We are careful stewards of the money we receive. We operate with one of the lowest overhead expenses possible: 11%; 89% of our funding goes directly to program services.
