Healthier: 14% of VA children have mental health needs. 2/3 never get the services they need. Currently, over 200,000 are awaiting treatment.Your investment ends that wait.
Under Mr. Farley’s leadership, Elk Hill has changed from an organization that relies heavily on funding from residential services to a Medicaid provider supported by state and private funding and committed to keeping at-risk youth in public schools and out of foster-care.
Mr. Farley continues to support the Kenyan village from his Peace Corp days through his work with the Makindu Children’s Program.
We understand that children aren’t going to succeed academically until they’re succeeding emotionally, behaviorally, and socially too. Our schools break down the walls between teaching and counseling. A staff balanced between mental health professionals and experienced educators provides a full court press to address multiple challenges that would otherwise feed on one another to prevent success. We have four schools serving grades K-12 in Varina, Goochland, Charlottesville and Staunton.
Our six-week program offers traditional fun for non-traditional campers.We welcome children who can’t attend other camps because of their challenging needs and behaviors. From autism and ADHD to anxiety and juvenile bipolar, our counselors are trained in what it takes to work with children with serious emotional and behavioral needs. Our camps serve 140 children at six locations in the Richmond, Goochland, and Charlottesville areas.
Indirect Public Support HelpIndirect public support represents revenue received through solicitation campaigns. This includes funding United Way and other federated fundraising organizations, but does not include donor designated contributions.
Earned Revenue HelpEarned revenue represents income generated in direct exchange for a product or service.Earned income includes income from government contracts.
90% of our expenses provide direct care services to children and families. Management accounts for around 7% and fundraising for 3%.
Elk Hill has been operating for over four decades. Our $5.5 million endowment, the Elk Hill Foundation, is designed to make sure we continue long into the future. 5% of its net assets are contributed to our operations annually. We do not have any debt.
We maintain a balance of revenues between Residential, Schools and Community Services programs. Our revenues come from a blend of private donations, local government, and Medicaid. In a volatile social services market, this diversity reduces risk.
Over the last four years, our operating revenue has grown by 66% to over $9 million. Much of this growth comes from rapid expansion in our Community Services and the Charlottesville region. In that same time, our cash position has improved by 60%, mainly thanks to generous support for the Elk Hill 20/20 campaign to raise $7 million in private donations to keep up with this expansion of services.
