We value the support and generosity of our funders. We spend funds prudently and in accordance with program plans described in our fundraising appeals with 89 percent of our spending going directly to programs. We leverage a $9 million operating budget into $76 million of contributed services, media time and space that help us reach millions of kids and families.
We make a formal report to our board of directors each year, where we assess our effectiveness in achieving our mission. In 2013, more than eight million families and individuals found the answers they needed to address teen substance abuse. Our parent support specialists have answered hundreds of calls, offering support and counsel to families in need.
