Most of our funding comes from grants through the local, state, and federal government. The following agencies and programs support the center financially:
Illinois Attorney General's Office - Violent Crime Victims Assistance Program
United Way of Southern Illinois
Perry County 708 Mental Health Board
National Children's Alliance
We are all very aware of the state of our economy, so it is not surprising that our grants from the state government continue to be cut on an annual basis. However, the support of the community has been vital in allowing us to provide the services to child abuse victims in both Perry and Jackson County. The center receives donations from the following sources from the community:
the City of Pinckneyville donates the use of a house as our only facility
Red Hawk Coal Company and Pinckneyville Community Hospital and Family Medical Center helps the center with the ability to provide our clients and their siblings with Christmas gifts
local churches donate money year round
clothing, toys, books, etc. are donated regulary for our clients
donations from individuals (monetary and otherwise)
Pat's Kids Christmas program
