Funding Needs

Tree Hill has relied heavily on contracts for services from a limited number of funding sources for many years. As those sources find their own funding cut, they had been forced to cut funding to Tree Hill. As a result, Tree Hill has begun the processes of diversifying its funding sources. There is a great need for immediate general funding to maintain the current level of services.
