To fully understand the financials of Living Alternatives, it helps to know the majority of our Program Expenses are donated. While Living Alternatives pays 44 staff to lead volunteer teams, the majority of time spent with clients and patients is donated by more than 200 volunteers on our team. Most of the resources and help women are able to receive while at the Pregnancy Resource Center are also donated – items such as diapers, clothing, formula, car seats, and cribs.
