Funding Needs

TROSA raises over 80 percent of its $17 million annual budget through its entrepreneurial ventures and in-kind donations, leaving 15 percent, or over $2 million, to be raised through cash contributions, grants and contracts. TROSA has also received funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide services to homeless addicts. Additional funding is needed to support the on-site medical clinic, which provides part-time primary care, thereby easing the unnecessary costs of hospital and emergency room visits for minor complaints. Also needed are unrestricted funds for other components of the program, such as education and capital expenses.

Founder, President, and CEO

Mr. Kevin McDonald

BIO

At the request of Durham business and community leaders, Kevin founded TROSA in 1994. Prior to coming to Durham, Kevin spent 12 years with the Delancey Street Foundation, a therapeutic community in San Francisco. His duties there included oversight of business ventures and the therapy program. He also opened and directed the North Carolina facility of the Delancey Street Foundation in Greensboro. Immediately prior to founding TROSA, Kevin directed a program for homeless parolees in Los Angeles that assisted 135 former gang members. Under Kevin's leadership, TROSA has become an outstanding example of social entrepreneurship in North Carolina using business ventures for career training as well as self-supporting income. Kevin is the recipient of many awards and honors including a 2001 winner of the Leadership for a Changing World award given by the Ford Foundation in partnership with the Advocacy Institute.
