Most of the children and families Garden of Prayer Youth Center serves are low income, and many live extremely below the poverty level. Our participants cannot afford to pay for services out of their own pockets. Garden of Prayer Youth Center's primary funding comes from state and local government grants and contracts.

As a result of the economic condition of our state, funding is reduced year after year while the need for the services we provide increases year after year. For these reasons, sponsorship opportunities are available to avoid cutting services or reducing the number of children and families we serve.
