In order to meets its operating expenses, the Centre receives a subvention from the Government of Belize in addition to donations and contributions from both private individuals and corporate entities. It is important to note that while some residents pay a monthly fee to stay at the center, others can’t, and so it also has to depend on the community to stay afloat.
