Sources of Funds

Operating funds come from the affordable room and board fees charged the residents (a fraction of the actual cost per resident), donations, United Way pledges and occasional grants from foundations. Arlington and Fairfax counties have awarded contracts to the Home to provide services to their citizens. The contracts authorize the counties to fund residents of the Home.

The Home participates in the campaign of the United Way of the National Capital Area Campaign (#8991) and the Combined Federal Campaign (#26156). Funds from the generous contributions of local citizens to those campaigns help supplement the funds received from the residents in exchange for room and board at the Home.

In addition, funds are raised from private sources and individual donors.

Total annual revenue is approximately $100,000.

Grants

St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church of Arlington, St. Mark Catholic Church of Vienna, the Seneca Foundation, the Dominion Guild and individual anonymous donors have given grants for capital improvements. Their generosity has provided funds for infrastructure needs such as a backup power generator, energy-saving windows, heating and air conditioning and general repairs that any home requires. Grants have also funded renovation of the kitchen and bathrooms and re-carpeting of the entire Home.
