There are three main sources of funding that enable Twelveacres to provide care, housing and education for our residents:

  • The majority of our funding (55%) comes from the generosity of individuals such as yourself via donations, annual gifts and planned giving.  We are truly grateful for your support which helps us greatly in meeting the needs of our residents and supporting the mission of Twelveacres.
  • The California Department of Developmental Services provides funds directly for each resident. These funds covers only 40% of our program costs.
  • Another 5% of our funding is grants from foundations and corporations.
