Yvonne Jones:  A main challenge of our organization is to build out non-grant revenue. While we currently operate primarily with grant sources, we are constantly working to increase our non-grant funding, primarily through earned income ventures. While grants are excellent for start-up funds, they decrease in value due to inflation over time, even if they are continuous. The difference must be made up by revenue which can grow with inflation. We are increasingly offering fee-based business services to meet this need.
