The Care-a-Van’s expenses are primarily for the hourly wages of the part time drivers, fuel, and maintenance of the vans.¬†Office space and supplies are donated. Other services and statistical reporting functions are performed by volunteers. There are five unpaid members of the board of directors. As a non-profit, the Care-a-Van’s income is very dependent on donations from clients, doctors, healthcare facilities, the counties and cities served, and the United Way.
